About The Community Chest of Hong Kong
The Community Chest of Hong Kong was established in 1968 as an independent, non-profit making organization neither funded, nor operated by the Government. Each year, the Chest organizesfund-raising events to benefit over 150 member social welfare agencies that reach out to more than two million beneficiaries in Hong Kong. The Chest’s administrative expenses come from a subsidized grant from The Hong Kong Jockey Club, in addition to income from investments. This allows the Chest to allocate 100% of funds raised to charitable use; this operations model makes the Chest unique among its peers, and helps fulfil its mission to act as trustee of the donors.
