This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Mencius Foundation


The Mencius Foundation was established to break down systemic barriers to prosperity and create a legacy of lasting change. Inspired by the namesake philosopher, the Foundation is founded on the belief that everyone has the potential to do immense good if given the opportunity and supports to do so. This is why the Foundation focuses its charitable giving on causes including supporting at-risk youth and poverty reduction.
