Since the establishment of Ipoh Chinwoo in 1924, the association has continued to promote and preserve Chinese culture. Other core objectives of the association are the promotion of wushu (martial arts), filial piety, discipline and love for self, family, community and country.

According to Dato’ Ooi, not only has the spirit of Chin Woo been maintained over the past 89 years, it has gotten stronger with each passing year. The current Board of Governors has continued the good work of the association’s predecessors, which include giving back to the community, in the form of helping to raise funds to build schools, hospitals and orphanages, and extending aid to victims of natural disasters.
