As many of you may know, our beloved father, husband, friend and mentor, Dr. Run-Tao Yan, recently passed away. He leaves behind not just a lifetime of beautiful memories for his family and friends to remember, but incredible impact on so many wonderful readers across the world. Dr. Yan also left behind unpublished work, as well as a passion for helping others learn. 

We are proud to announce The RunTao Project in honor of Dr. Run-Tao Yan, whose prolific life observations over 15 years of writing was beloved by many. Before his passing, Run-Tao had started his own website,, hosting his articles. Now, with The RunTao Project, we can ensure this website continues to cultivate a positive community of discussion and learning, keeping his memory and what he strived to create alive. 

So, we are setting up this GoFundMe campaign to raise contributions to help with immediate needs to plan and carry on his legacy. With significant contributions, we will focus on community engagement, making the site a vivid place for discussion and learning, which also helps keep his writings as relevant as possible for any future readers. We hope to upgrade the website, invite guest editors, etc. Run-Tao wrote over 1000 articles on various online platforms, and our goal is to organize them into themes to promote further discussion, translate them to English, and find ways to ensure his legacy lives on with the community he so deeply cherished.

We will share updates as we get more details and make progress on The RunTao Project. We want to thank you all for your outpouring of support in loving memory of our father, husband, and friend Dr. Run-Tao Yan. 

Thank you,

Dr. Run-Tao Yan’s family and friends
