UMC Public Welfare Invest

Let Hope Grow Program

UMC understands that its business success comes not only from employees’ efforts, but also a peaceful community. Therefore, since being established, UMC has adhered to the principle that corporations need to work for the society as a long-term approach. We work hard for business growth, and also work hard to contribute to society in the meantime. Key issues of public welfare activities are according to the LBG model. UMC not only links its corporate strategy but also evaluates the influence to corporations and the community of each activity. UMC’s main activities for social participation in 2020 are as follows :


  1. Core plan of six communities
  2. Promote and implement environmental protection policy
  3. Human rights and labor-management issues 

UMC's volunteer culture has always been praised by employees. From "the Candle Light Society" to "UMC Science and Culture Foundation", UMC spends considerable effort to strengthen volunteer culture and to train volunteers. In addition to the Candle Light Society and UMC Science and Culture Foundation, UMC has an outdoor fun club which offers tutoring for minority pupils in remote mountain areas and our ESH department to promote long-term environmental protection. Furthermore, UMC provides free sources for children from disadvantaged families. Volunteers collaborate with the government to hold all kinds of activities that help to spread UMC volunteers’ working culture.

UMC believes education is an effective way to improve human capital in Taiwan, so it started the “Spreading the Seeds of Hope” program in 2005, the 25th anniversary for UMC, to advance education for children from disadvantaged families.

UMC had invested 170 million to assist over 6300 children from disadvantaged families until 2020, and this program is ongoing.

Promoting Life Education

“Seed of Life Education” focuses on helping disadvantaged youth to find the bright side of life and strengthen themselves. In order to help indigenous children and disadvantaged youth realize the meaning of life, UMC started Life Education volunteer training class for employees and their families. They visit remote areas and have summer camps to tutor and take care of children.

Moreover, UMC Love Storyteller Club achieved similar goals through different media including stage plays. In particular, club members spend their free time during workdays to rehearse and ensure the stage is set up properly. This is also a form of life education for themselves and their family members. Moreover, their activities may inspire these children to dream and try to make those dreams come true someday.
