Do you have a charity in Hong Kong you feel passionately about? Want to raise its profile and generate some funds to help it develop further? If so, the FCC Charity Committee would like to hear from you.
A key to the development of the FCC’s charity programme is to encourage as many members as possible to get involved in the charities we support, including nominating our chosen charities.
Our focus is on charities that fall under ‘The Three E’s’, namely, elderly care, early learning and educational special needs (any age and can be re-training). Whilst many charities in Hong Kong are high profile and receive substantial funding, we will focus on organisations that sometimes ‘fall between the cracks’ though quietly do great work in the community.
The organisation we are supporting in 2017 is the China Coast Community, where we have assisted in the purchase of specialised beds, organised physiotherapy for the residents and are organising visits to the Home. To help us select the cause we will support in 2018, we are inviting members and staff to make their suggestions on the attached form. A panel comprising the Charity Committee and Members of the Board of Governors will choose one of the qualifying charities nominated.
Thank you for taking the time to nominate a charity you know will benefit from the support of the FCCHK.
