CHAIRMAN TIM MINARD & CEO DAME DIDI WONG

About us

The Minard Wong Foundation was founded by Mr. Tim Minard and Dame Didi Wong. They discovered their passion for philanthropy ever since their first words were exchanged and in finding the synergy and alignment on the same issues and their mutual respect and trust for one another, the Foundation was born.

The mission at the Minard Wong Foundation is to promote lasting peace, positivity, and prosperity throughout the world.

We seek to empower individuals, communities, and nations by providing aid in education, human rights with a focus on human trafficking, health and wellness with a focus on mental health, economic development, and social justice initiatives.

Our goal is to promote peace versus polarization, positivity versus pessimism, prosperity versus poverty.

We want to create an interconnected global community that strives for fairness and equality for all. Through our commitment to these ideals, we hope to build bridges between people regardless of nationality, ethnicity or beliefs. Mutual respect and understanding are the keys to a great outcome.
