SKAC Foundation

  • Mission
    The Mission of The Shui Kuen and Allen Chin Foundation ("The SKAC Foundation") is to honor the values of restaurant owners Shui Kuen and Allen Chin through supporting the educational aspirations of children of workers in the Asian/Pacific Islander food service industry in the United States of America.
  • History/genesis
    The selfless commitment and hard work of Shui Kuen and Allen Chin, co-owners and operators of Chung's, a well-known Chinese restaurant in the greater Detroit area, allowed their six children to successfully complete post-secondary education and pursue a diverse range of career paths. With pride, the Chins regularly shared news of their children's latest accomplishments with long-time and new restaurant customers alike. On October 11, 2005, Allen Chin lost his life on his way to the restaurant. Shui Kuen Chin survived the car accident and provided encouragement to her children as they sought to turn the family tragedy into something positive. The result is The Shui Kuen and Allen Chin Foundation.
  • Supporting educational aspirations
    The Chin children have decided that The SKAC Foundation's support of educational aspirations will take the form of an annual scholarship award program to be known as The SKAC Scholarship. Subject to change, two (2) annual scholarships of $1,000 will be made.
