Origin of the Foundation
2000 was an important year for Walsin Technology setting up a charitable organization. When the 921 Earthquake devastated central Taiwan in 2000, PSA staff’s took an active role in the disaster relief and rebuilding communities. Their acts won PSA’s great support. With the large-scale activity of “sweet persimmon adoption” started by the internal of the company, we directly purchase sweet persimmon from the affected areas; also, “The Persimmon Journey” was held to visit the affected area as well as providing further help through sponsoring students in affected areas free lunch meals. Such sincere care and warm-hearted attentions over the development of remote communities have become a part of PSA cooperation culture.
Thanks to the enthusiastic staff engagement in charitable activities, most of our staffs have a strong bond to cooperate social responsibility (CSR); on the other hand, PSA Alliance is also deeply aware of its social identity as well as its social responsibility. With a focus on charitable giving in a more organized, clear-aimed, and better approach, in 2002, PSA Passive System Alliance has integrated Tzi-Huei Club of its affiliated companies to set up the foundation, which will be the important platform of PSA when getting involved in charitable giving. In 2007, the foundation changed its name to be the same as the alliance, “PSA Charitable Foundation.”
