Cultural Foundations of Zhendai He USA

Established in 2016, The Cultural Foundations of Zhendai He USA is a 501(c)3 non-profit and non-political organization registered in California. The mission of the Foundation is to promote the traditional Chinese culture and art, to share Chinese cultural essence around the world, and to become a cultural bridge by blending the traditional legacies with modern innovations. 


“Chinese culture, World Express.” Using the world’s common expressions to spread the Chinese culture to the young generations, is the Foundation’s way to attract more and more youth to appreciate their roots in Chinese culture and benefit them by incorporating the cultural elements into their daily lives. The Foundation aims to host major philanthropic events each year in different countries. These events will not only cultivate the roots of cultural sensitivities but also contribute to nourishing societal peace and prosperity.  

Zhendai He (1867 – 1952) was a renowned poet, a modern scholar of classic literature, expert of local chronicles, and master of traditional Chinese poetry. He was the best exemplary of the old style of poetry, so-called the Tong-Guang-Ti, a modern branch of Min (Hokkien). For generations, Mr. He’s family motto-“hard-working will always be rewarded. Envying nobody’s luck, because everyone is blessed in a unique way,” has inspired his descendants of four generations around the world. Ms. Xinyan He, a 4th generation descendant of Zhendai He, has been deeply influenced by the profound cultural essence revealed in her ancestor’s work, established the Cultural Foundation of Zhendai He USA  to promote the Chinese Culture and Art.
