CHIMEI Culture Foundation
Founded in 1977, the foundation is responsible for managing the collection and curation of the CHIMEI Museum, as well as cultivating artistic and musical talents through its CHIMEI Art Award. The foundation allows Taiwanese students to borrow from its violin collection free of charge.
CHIMEI established the CHIMEI Museum in 1992. In 2014, it was relocated to a new building in the Tainan Metropolitan Park. CHIMEI invested approximately NT$3 billion in the construction costs, and donated the building to the Tainan City Government. Born out of CHIMEI founder Mr. Shi Wen-Long’s dream to introduce local people to diverse cultural artifacts from around the globe, this private collection is one of the most splendid and rich in the world.
In 1987, CHIMEI took over the Father Fox Foundation hospital. It was renamed to CHIMEI Hospital and serves local communities with comprehensive, high-quality medical care and healthcare services.
