Reviews for Soar Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

I am Hsia Choong. My husband and I have been a donor to SOAR Foundation for over ten years. It is a very clear and transparent education charity supporting needing and deserving students mostly from minority races in Taiwan and China. All headquarter workers are volunteers. Many of them are long-term donors themselves. Over 90% of donation money goes directly to the recipient students. No middleman cuts or fees.

Ways to make it better...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
