Our mission with the Low Meng Tak Foundation is to preserve and enhance the quality of life for the people of Malaysia and those around the globe by embracing and perpetuating the philanthropic vision of Low Meng Tak, the Malaysian successful businessman. Low Meng Tak not only contributed to the community from his wealth which he earned by years of hard work, but also passed the mission to his descendants. Among them are businesspersons and philanthropists Larry Low Hock Peng, Low Jho and Low Taek Szen who were taught from a young age that real wealth is the ability to contribute to your fellows.
We initiate grant incentives in support of programs of youth development, health, education, and the environment. We believe in a better Malaysia and are willing to contribute both through the Low Meng Tak Foundation and through our businesses to fulfill his vision.
Our mission as the Low family is to engage with the community, provide financial grants that have strategic value. Our goal is to fulfil an ongoing commitment to enhancing the quality of life in our province of Penang and Malaysia as a whole.
Our community contributions are not specialized. We support a variety of worthy charitable organizations across many sectors. In the past, we have funded charities focused on social services, culture, education and health.
Born in Guangdong in China, Low Meng Tak came as a teen to Malaysia in the 1940s. He was a businessman dealing in iron-ore mining and liquor distilleries in Thailand in the 1960s and 1970s, and in real estate in Thailand, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Meng Tak donated money to build schools in Puning, as well as scholarships for primary schools. He did not forget his hometown of Guandong, where he donated money to help build medical centers.
To commemorate his memory, the Lows established the Low Meng Tak Foundation.
