Peter Bennett Foundation works with partners in Hong Kong and Asia to address the causes of poverty and inequality. In addition to making direct donations, the Foundation works with NGOs, government, universities and other Foundations. By pooling knowledge and action we can be more effective in promoting change.
We believe in a hands-on approach, applying business and finance experience to promote efficient and sustainable change. By emphasizing accountability and scalability we identify and support social enterprises and organisations promoting innovative solutions to difficult problems.
As well as direct investments to promote equity and mitigate the effects of poverty, we are committed to the development of effective Public Policy to drive change. In pursuit of this we are funding a new Public Policy Institute at Cambridge University to carry out world leading research in this area.

We are proud to work with Edrington to support organisations working with underserved populations in SE Asia. In 2017 Edrington raised more than US$500,000 through a sponsored bike ride in Cambodia and matched corporate funding.
Edrington also generously donated exclusive premium Macallan whisky for auction which raised more than HK$6m for Hong Kong charities.
