The HKEX Impact Funding Scheme, in partnership with the Hong Kong Council of Social Service, will enhance our outreach. It will channel another $10 million to support small proactive charities, without other major support, to run projects that bring positive change to our community.

As a responsible corporate citizen, we are fully aware of our responsibility towards the wider community in which we operate. Following the success of the HKEX Charity Partnership Programme, we are scaling up our philanthropic efforts by setting up the new HK$10 million HKEX Impact Funding Scheme. By working in partnership with The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS), we are able to support more grassroots charities which do not receive any regular government funding, to run short-to-medium term projects, serving a wider spectrum of people in need in our community.

Apart from aligning with the HKEX Foundation’s four themes, the HKEX Impact Funding Scheme also encourages innovation in services and solutions that address the social and environmental challenges of the society.

Apply for funding.
