Who we are
CITIC CLSA Trust (“the Trust”) provides financial and human capital to support communities in the markets where CITIC CLSA operates.
As the overseas platform for CITIC Securities’ global philanthropy efforts, the Trust funds charitable initiatives to make positive and sustainable social impact and implement CITIC Securities’ global philanthropy strategy, with key objectives in education improvement and poverty alleviation. The Trust also reserves funds for emergency aids in case of global or regional disastrous events. 100% of the funds are used to support charitable initiatives.
The Trust’s predecessor – CLSA Chairman’s Trust was founded in 2006. Since inception, it had donated approximately US$30 million to 123 grassroots charitable organizations and funded 155 projects worldwide, touching the lives of over 500,000 individuals around the globe.
The path forward
The Trust aims to bring together ideas, people and communities to drive positive social progress. Now with a leaner and more focused approach, the programme will deliver more enduring and meaningful support to improve the lives of local communities where we operate, and drive forward even more significant social impact.
