What good is success if you can’t help others find it as well? Charities and non-profit organizations rely on the kindness and support of others to keep their missions moving forward. Successful businessman and investor Gordon Tang understands the mutually beneficial advantages to making charitable donations, and that’s why he continues to do his part and spread his wealth.
Most recently, Gordon Tang has donated $50,000 to the Seattle Children’s Hospital and $100,000 to the San Francisco Chinese Hospital.
The San Francisco Chinese Hospital is a non-profit community hospital that is dedicated to serving the multicultural community of the Bay Area. The hospital is growing rapidly and offers a multitude of medical, surgical, and specialty care services.
It is the hope of Gordon Tang that with his donation this diversity-driven hospital can continue to thrive and help care for those in need.
Seattle Children’s Hospital’s mission is to “provide hope, care, and cures, to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.” Gordon Tang couldn’t agree more with this goal and is proud to make another donation to one of the best children’s hospitals in the country. Gordon Tang also donated $10,000 to Seattle Children’s in 2014, and his most recent donation is for five times that amount.
Gordon Tang wants his donation to help keep Seattle Children’s as one of the most successful children’s hospitals in the United States. U.S. News & World Report have named Seattle Children’s one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation for 25 straight years, and Gordon Tang hopes to help keep that streak going moving forward.
These are not the first charitable donations made by Gordon Tang, and they certainly won’t be the last. Between the $30,000 he donated to the Tenderloin Museum and the various donations he has made to 826 Valencia and TNDC, Gordon Tang has donated nearly $1 million to U.S. organizations.
Gordon Tang has also let his love for sport and physical activity drive his charitable donations. With a $2 million USD donation to the International Olympic Museum and a RMB 300 million donation to the Shantou Olympic Sports Academy in China, Gordon Tang is doing his part is facilitating and preserving the virtues of athletics and competition. He even sponsors the Cambodian sailing, surfing, and gymnastics teams.
Gordon Tang’s love for windsurfing and Judo has also led to him donating his time and money. As an experienced windsurfer himself, Gordon Tang serves as an advisor to the Windsurfing Association of Singapore. He also uses his time and resources to support the Singapore JUDO Federation, so that the martial art that he loves can be spread and enjoyed by others.
Gordon Tang doesn’t donate because he has to. He does it because he wants to and he knows that a little bit of help can go a long way.
