The American Club Foundation strives to make a positive impact for communities that need support. While our foundation is relatively young, and the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges, we are proud to highlight the results here:
THE HONG KONG COMMUNITY RECOVERY FUND
The Hong Kong-American community joined together in 2020 to provide urgent support to families most affected by the Covid-19 crisis in our city. NGO's experienced a challenging landscape. While fundraising income steadily decreased due to lock downs, beneficiaries' needs skyrocketed.
The Hong Kong Community Recovery Fund (HKCRF) was formed. The American Club Foundation reached out to the American/Expat community and raised over HK$4 million. Funds were awarded to 12 NGOs to support capacity building and maintain vital education, training and mental health programs.
