Hong Kong – Today Give2Asia, the leader in international philanthropic services for Asia, announces the formation of Give2Asia Foundation Ltd., a Section 88 charitable organization in Hong Kong. Give2Asia Foundation Ltd. provides grantmaking and philanthropic advisory services while offering tax benefits to individual, foundation and corporate donors with assets in Hong Kong.
“Hong Kong is a gateway to business in China which makes it a natural fit for Give2Asia,” said Leith Robotham, Director of Business Development at Give2Asia. “Our contribution to the dynamic business environment is connecting corporations, foundations and individuals to important social causes and quality charities in Hong Kong, China and across the Asia Pacific region.”
In 2012, Hong Kong outranked the Netherlands, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia as the best place to do business in the world, according to Bloomberg.
Give2Asia offers philanthropy advice and implementation services to donors through its network of local experts throughout the Asia-Pacific region and services for donors, supporting charitable causes in over 23 countries. With headquarters in San Francisco, California and with its largest regional office located in Beijing, China, Give2Asia has received over US$200 million in contributions over the past 10 years to support 1,500 charitable organizations.
