The Kei Lin Foundation was founded on December 18, 2012, by Margaret Tsai, in honor of her mother Kei Lin, whose hard work and dedication have served as an exceptional inspiration throughout her lifetime, which made it possible for achieving many personal and professional successes.
A private Foundation 501 C (3) (tax exempt), the Kei Lin Foundation operates exclusively for Charitable, Scientific, Literary and Educational programs, i.e, programs dedicated to youth in agricultural careers. Our primary emphasis is placed in support of senior citizens who have no immediate living relatives or resources to help alleviate hunger and assist in the well being for a more comfortable life free of despair.
The trustees, as well as the Committee members, serve as volunteers without compensation. We welcome your dedicated support and generous contributions to promote and share our goals.
