The Community Chest of Hong Kong (the Chest) is committed to addressing imminent needs in society and assisting the underprivileged proactively and innovatively by raising money through community-wide appeals for member agencies and special purpose funds. The Chest pledges that all funds raised, without deduction of any administration expenses, will be allocated prudently to member agencies for the provision of quality social services in six major areas to those in need.
The Chest acts as a trustee of the donors so that 100% of all donations are put to the best use according to a stringent and transparent allocation and monitoring system. The Chest also acts as a gatekeeper as the vetting and admission of new member agencies is carried out according to a rigorous and transparent process. In addition, the Chest is dedicated to building a caring society by fostering a culture of giving.
