Following the success of HKEX Charity Partnership Programme, we are scaling up our philanthropic efforts through a new HK$10 million HKEX Impact Funding Scheme in 2021. By working in partnership with The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS), we are able to support more charitable institutions which do not receive any regular government funding and recognised social enterprises to run short-to-medium term projects, serving a wide spectrum of people in need in our community.
