Open Hearts to Keep the Spirit of Giving


Running the "Rainbow Fund" and susidizing the project of "Rainlily" could be regarded as the core value of the Community Chest, said the senior officer of the charity in a university talk heard yesterday.

"Rainbow Fund" was a campaign to help some individuals and families who had financial difficulties. It also gave a hand to some who were suffering from disasters or crisis. Besides, Louie Tong, the Community Relations Manager of the Community Chest of Hong Kong, also pointed that they supported the project of "Rainlily" to take care of some women who were hit by their husbands violently.


“The Community Chest is the only supporter of this programme. We have a mission to give subsidy to such a small organization to serve the society,” Tong said.


According to Tong, the Community Chest is an independent and non-profit making organization. It is not funded or operated by the government."We are very proud of assuring our donors total allocation of funds gathered to our beneficiaries. There are not any deduction for administrative expenses [This begs the question: where does the money for administrative expenses come from?]. Actually, we are one of the few fund-raising bodies in the world who run with such a practice," she emphasized.


The Community Chest of Hong Kong raised nearly HK$350 million in the 2010 to 2011 campaign year, increasing over 25 per cent against a year earlier. "It is a new record for the charity," she said. From the annual report, HSBC remained the top donor for the tenth consecutive year. Standard Chartered Hong Kong 150th Anniversary Community Foundation was named benefactor of the year.


Tong claimed that the working group of the Community Chest had kept to think various imaginative and creative campaigns. For example, "The Community Chest BOCHK Charity Golf Day" will be held on coming Friday, which is going to benefit "Services for Mentally Ill and Ex-mentally Ill". Tong explained the new fund-raising activities could get people attention and participation. So, the donors could be informed and donated money.


Over the past 40 years, the Community Chest spent money to help people in need, including the elderly, the handicapped, the women and children. The organization asserted that the donations would 100 per cent reached the needy. Tong concluded that the Community Chest would help to promote the spirit of giving in Hong Kong continuously.
