AREAS OF FOCUS
Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect
We seek to make grants that provide support to organizations that prevent child abuse and neglect, and help children heal. As the most vulnerable and innocent population in our society, we seek programs that protect them during their formative years and encourage them to reach their full potential in life.
Preventing Animal Cruelty
We aim to fund animal rescues, educational programs and nonprofits that are protecting the welfare of defenseless animals, and educate the next generation to become more caring and humane. Our focus is on organizations that both directly impact the welfare of individuals but also seek to pursue policy and structural changes to communities that are affected by dog fighting and animal abuse.
Promoting and Sponsoring education
We have established the Cosmin Panait and Lilian Yang MMS scholarship at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business, with the aim to support international students in particular and attract the best and brightest from around the world. We are hoping to give students the chance to feel less financial burden and allow them to rest easier throughout studying and finding a job—to know that they are supported by individuals other than their families.
Proposals to the Cosmin Panait and Lilian Yang Foundation are by invitation only, although we are seeking to develop a grant application process in the nearby future. The Foundation has no obligation to review, accept, or return unsolicited materials.
