First Initiative Foundation focuses on creating initiatives that uplift and benefit Hong Kong both locally and on the world stage.

Through its multitude of activities and special events, the foundation provides educational opportunities and community outreach initiatives.

It funds scholarships with arts institutions both at home and abroad, from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and Hong Kong Polytechnic University to the Manhattan School of Music and the Lang Lang International Music Foundation, and organises visual and performing arts events.

A remarkable local and international membership, which includes Lang Lang, Reneé Fleming, Eason Chan, Carina Lau and Kevin Kwan, supports its work.
