Each year, the Chest organises fund-raising events to benefit over 160 social welfare member agencies that reach out to more than 2.5 million beneficiaries in Hong Kong in six major areas of services: children & youth, elderly, family & child welfare, medical & health, rehabilitation & aftercare, and community development.
The Chest’s administrative expenses come from a subsidised grant from our partner-in-charity, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, and return from prudent investment. 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.
The ultimate goals of “Elderly Services” are to encourage and assist people to take care of their senior family members; to provide multi-dimensional services for senior citizens to join in community activities, to demonstrate their strengths and to enable them enjoy good health and have a sense of security, belonging and worthiness.
The ultimate goals of "Family and Child Welfare Services" are to maintain and strengthen family bonding, to encourage mutual support relationship among family members; to help them prevent and cope with individual or family problems; as well as to provide services for their unmet needs.
"Medical & Health Services" aim to support patients and their family members in better managing their daily lives and to improve their quality of life; to advocate healthy living style and provide preventive education on different diseases among members of the community to achieve holistic development.
"Rehabilitation Services" aim to acknowledge the equal rights of people with disabilities to be full members of the community by assisting them in developing their physical, mental and social capabilities to the fullest possible extent and to promote their integration into the community.
