Fubon has always been deeply concerned with the impact of social change and engages in charitable activities hoping to become a force for positive change in Taiwan. Amid a rapidly aging society, Fubon is intent on fostering a friendlier and more welcoming environment for seniors and has initiated a "Senior Care Program" encompassing the "Fubon Sweet 60 Jiazi Cup", the "Happy Train Program," and music therapy and dementia support projects.

In addition, "Emergency Relief Fund" programs assist individuals and families facing major emergencies by providing subsidies to meet various needs, including daily living, medical and funeral expenses. Fubon is committed to working toward achieving mutual prosperity in society, which is why we are constantly striving to promote social progress, to fulfill our role as a good corporate citizen trusted by our stakeholders and steadily pursuing Goal 3 of the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs), which seeks to ensure healthy lifestyles and promote well-being for people at all ages.
