OUR CHARITY PARTNERS.
Since the Foundation’s inception in 2019, we have partnered with over 30 charities on a variety of activities. We've collaborated on events to raise awareness of community challenges and social issues and created volunteer opportunities that enable concrete actions for social impact.
FUND A FUTURE
Over the past 3 years, Hong Kong charities have been stretched to their limits, with the demand for their services soaring yet their ability to fundraise being limited due to the pandemic.
We partnered with 3 hard-working charities to help them recover - ImpactHK- helps the homeless, Sailability -empowers the mentally & physically disabled through sailing & Resource-provides mental health counseling.
In May 2022, we launched our first ever virtual fundraising campaign, “Fund a Future” to support these charities. Thanks to the generosity of our community we raised a total of HK$300,000 to be split equally between the 3 charities.
COVID EMERGENCY APPEAL CHARITY PARTNERS.
In a response to Hong Kong's pandemic-related "fifth wave" in March 2022, the ACF canvassed the community and raised a total of HK$300,000 to benefit five local charities who support over 3,800 beneficiaries. It was our privilege to raise funds for Teen's Key, RUN Hong Kong, Health in Action, PathFinders and Hong Kong Dignity Institute.
CHINESE NEW YEAR CHARITY PARTNER.
We celebrated Chinese New Year 2022 with a family friendly volunteering event at the Club. Almost 100 volunteers gathered to pack over 200 CNY parcels filled with basic necessities to benefit J Life Foundation beneficiaries.
FIRST GRANT AWARDED.
We began 2022 by awarding ACF's first grant to local charity, J Life Foundation, an organisation highly regarded and trusted by its own beneficiaries largely located in Sham Shui Po. An award of HK$500,000 currently supports two of their social enterprises designed to create jobs in their local community.
