The Pagoda

The pagoda symbolizes The Community Chest because according to ancient Chinese culture, it is an architectural form associated with good spirits, as well as being in turn a symbol of the benevolence of the people who are protected by such spirits. The towering structure represents not only the aggregate of people’s good works but also the accumulation of their blessings and fortune.  Since 1968, the Chest’s pagoda has stood sentinel over the changing face of Hong Kong and is a testimony to the generosity of Hong Kong people.

The Beginning

The dramatic growth of Hong Kong’s population in the 1960s came with social problems that caught the attention of the international community, this was followed by the arrival of welfare agencies and religious organizations which helped relieve the problems with cash and supplies.

 

As Hong Kong’s economic growth started to pick up toward the end of the decade, some international agencies began to leave, creating a gap in the social welfare system. As a result, local agencies had to compete with each other for donations to maintain their services. To improve the situation, a group of community leaders including the late the Hon P Y Tang, the late Lady Fung Ping-fan, the late Lady Hogan and Dr Samson Sun came up with the idea of a “community fund” to raise money on behalf of all agencies, thus eliminating competition among them in their fund-raising efforts and providing them with the resources to focus on service delivery – this was the beginning of The Community Chest of Hong Kong.

 

The Community Chest of Hong Kong was founded on 8 November 1968 with a fund-raising target of HK$6 million. The amount raised exceeded the target in under three months, and benefitted the 43 agencies it funded in its early years of operation.

 

Today, The Community Chest of Hong Kong prides itself in raising funds on behalf of over 160 local member agencies in six major areas of services: children & youth, elderly, family & child welfare, medical & health, rehabilitation & aftercare, and community development, making every effort to contribute to a better Hong Kong.

Role

  • to ensure that 100% of all donations go to the member agencies, without deduction of administration expenses;
  • to develop a stringent and transparent allocation and monitoring system to ensure that donations are put to best use in funding services of greatest needs, and to those not supported by the government;
  • to develop a stringent and transparent system to review the applications of, and admissions of new member agencies;
  • to work towards building a caring society by fostering a culture of giving by the community

Mission

  • to raise funds through community wide appeals on behalf of member social welfare agencies;
  • to act as trustee of the donors and allocate funds prudently to our agencies to provide quality services to those in need;
  • to serve donors who wish to support a wide range of services funded by the Chest in six major areas

The Organisation

The Community Chest of Hong Kong is a corporation established under the Community Chest of Hong Kong Ordinance in 1968. It is an independent, non-profit making organisation neither funded nor operated by the Government. The Community Chest is governed by a Board of business and community leaders.

Under the Board, there are the Executive, Campaign, Public Relations, and Admissions, Budgets & Allocations Committees, and sub-committees served by over 300 professionals from their respective fields. Day-to-day administration and implementation of fund-raising and other activities of the Chest are supported by some 40 staff members, headed by the Chief Executive.
