Member Agencies of the Chest to Launch Eight Community Projects Supported by HK$20 million Donation from HKEX Foundation
For the second year in a row, HKEX Foundation, through the HKEX Charity Partnership Programme, contributed another HK$20 million to support community projects and services offered by member agencies of The Community Chest of Hong Kong (the Chest) that address social and environmental challenges facing our society.
Today, the Chest announced that after careful vetting by the Admissions, Budgets and Allocations Committee, eight projects have been selected for funding support. Among them, four projects promote diversity and inclusion, two projects focus on poverty relief, and the remaining two projects are related to financial literacy and environmental sustainability.
All projects will be launched between January and June in 2022 with a three-year service period.
Mrs Laura M Cha, HKEX Chairman and Chairman of HKEX Foundation, said: “Throughout the year, HKEX Foundation has actively engaged and given back to our communities. Thanks to generous donations from listed issuers and market participants, as well as the support of The Community Chest of Hong Kong, we are very pleased to see the strong momentum and increasing impact in particular of the HKEX Charity Partnership Programme. As a responsible corporate citizen, we seek to address sustainability and social issues at a local level, reflecting HKEX’s commitment to our collective future.”
Dr Simon Kwok, Chairman of the Chest’s Executive Committee, said: “We really appreciate HKEX Foundation’s continued generosity. Through the HKEX Charity Partnership Programme, HKEX Foundation transforms its philanthropic spirit into action, and the funds will go a long way in enhancing resources for the Chest’s member agencies to deliver impactful social services and community projects that address the needs of society and for the long-term sustainability of Hong Kong.”
The Chest and HKEX have established a robust philanthropic partnership for over two decades. Since 1999, over HK$1.2 billion has been raised in total through the Stock Code for Charity Scheme from more than 1,200 participating companies to support the Chest’s member agencies.
