PHILANTHROPY
Recent and current philanthropic activities of Primacorp Ventures Inc. and its Chairman, Peter Chung reach across the globe and touch the lives of many.

Through Lift Up Canada, in 2008, a contribution of $1000.00 scholarships to over 1400 inner city children in Vancouver, Canada provided access to post-secondary training to open up a brighter future for young people in disadvantaged circumstances.

As part of his directorship of Power to Change, a large faith-based organization in British Columbia, Peter helped finance and steer two major projects in Tanzania. First, an ongoing water well project where local people are trained and given the equipment necessary to drill community wells to provide life’s most valuable resource to communities where hauling water for 3 kilometers was the norm. Second, the acquisition of land and construction of an orphanage to provide the necessities of life for children who had lost their parents to any number of reasons, and providing a brighter hope for the future for Africa’s children.

Under his direction and participation, Global Aid Network implemented a computer school in North Korea to provide valuable training and modern life skills to North Korean citizens. Also, through this organization, Peter and Primacorp were instrumental in providing food and nutrition programs in Cambodia and Thailand to assist those subjected to natural famine disasters. Also, an education program was established in Thailand providing scholarships and training to Thai citizens, many of whom now are gainfully employed in various aid agencies in Thailand.

Through his affiliation with the First Steps, Peter and his wife, Stephanie, were able to provide large amounts of soy milk to help impoverished North Korean citizens survive famine during times of political isolation due to events far beyond the scope of their ordinary citizens.

Local Vancouver charities are quick to seek Primacorp when unexpected shortfalls arise. Through City in Focus, Vancouver’s less fortunate have consistently received support through these charities' various initiatives and programs and Primacorp readily provides resources necessary to see these initiatives through.

Peter is also very active locally in arts and culture. In Vancouver, he serves on the Board of Directors of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and participates annually in sponsorship of the Symphony. He also supports the annual series of Bard on the Beach, a community-based theatre company that brings a seven-week run of Shakespeare’s finest works to the stage.

Perhaps most dear to the heart of both Peter and Stephanie though was the establishment of the Joseph Chung Scholarship Foundation. In memory of his late son, Joseph, the fund administers over a million dollars of endowments and grants at Trinity Western University, Briercrest Seminary College, Regent College, Pepperdine University, and through the Joseph Chung Scholarship Fund as administered through the Great Commission Foundation.
