Social Participation

TSMC has been contributing for many years to neglected corners of society and areas lacking resources as a force to uplift society.

TSMC's mission is to uplift society. We have not only strived to thrive in our core business of dedicated IC foundry services, but have also built a socially-caring network through TSMC Culture and Education Foundation, TSMC Volunteer Program and TSMC i-Charity Platform. By combining the Company’s resources with employee volunteer service to commit money, material, and labor, we bring positive transformation to our communities.
