Red Envelope Foundation

We've been so privileged to call Vancouver home for almost five decades and now it’s our turn to give back.
Peter, Jon, Rita and Grace

After arriving in Canada in 1972, the Cheng family settled in Vancouver and learned the art of tofu making. The family eventually opened their own tofu shop and worked tirelessly on building their business while raising four children. Now that the children have families of their own, they want to pass along the importance of supporting others who may not be as fortunate.

After calling Vancouver home for nearly five decades, the family is now giving back to the community that welcomed them with opportunities. This is also a way of honouring and cherishing the legacy of their late parents.

The Red Envelope Foundation supports local communities with an emphasis on children/families, youths, social services and women’s issues.
