Ren Che Foundation makes catalytic investments to address inequalities through scalable innovations that build resilient, engaged and just communities.


Ren Che Foundation was established in 2015 by Tessie M. Che and Michael N. Chang, who had a vision of bringing their family together in a collaboration that would create lasting social and environmental change for our local and global communities.

Tessie and Michael have improved the lives of many people through biotechnology, health and wellness ventures, and they have always prioritized sharing and helping others. With Ren Che Foundation, they deepen their commitment to health, prosperity and opportunity for others and establish an enduring platform for future generations to practice philanthropy as a catalyst for lasting and positive impact.
