Hong Kong Foundation Services

Hong Kong charitable foundations are a powerful way to access Asian giving and a highly effective fundraising tool. In addition to providing tax advantages for both donor and recipient, establishing a foundation sends a clear signal to Asian donors, alumni and supporters that your institution is committed to the region for the long term. Setting up a Hong Kong charitable foundation offers advantages to foundations wishing to attract Asian donors:

  • Allows institutions to collect funds from alumni and donors across Asia within their home region,
  • Enables alumni and donors based in Hong Kong to receive tax deductions for their donations to institutions,
  • Simplifies receipt of donations from mainland Chinese as many maintain Hong Kong dollar accounts,
  • Fosters local connections as institutions can demonstrate its commitment to the Asia region,
  • Deepens engagement as local foundations offer opportunities to participate for suitable alumni and donors,
  • Offers institutions straightforward access to monies as there are no restrictions on the movement of currency from Hong Kong to other countries.

We provide full support for creating and administering Hong Kong charitable foundations:
