The Yeh Family Philanthropy

With the mission of “building capacity in promising young minds through education and social entrepreneurship”, YFP is a family foundation established in 2011 by Dr. M. T. Geoffrey Yeh. Having benefited from the generosity of donors, Dr. Yeh believes strongly that it is his privilege and duty to pay it forward. YFP regards itself as a young organization experimenting and learning to give in a responsible and thoughtful manner. YFP focuses on providing seed or catalytic capital to organizations and projects that present breakthrough thinking, that provide opportunities for it to leverage the strengths of its partners and that hold the possibility of flourishing in their own right.
