The Giving Hong Kong 2016-2017 Report
Supported by the Faculty of Social Sciences at HKU, the Giving Hong Kong Report 2016-2017 is the first report that strives to supply a landscape view of individual, corporate and foundation giving and volunteering behavior in Hong Kong. Giving and volunteering could be considered as efforts in mobilizing societal resources to achieve a better world for all. Hong Kong society is usually regarded as generous even by international standards. However, as giving and volunteering information are rather scattered, it is difficult to have a full picture of the overall philanthropic scene. This report is an attempt to fill this void. In addition, the study provides a forward looking perspective and should be useful to NGOs in identifying newer forms of fundraising and volunteer recruitment methods. Published in 2019, the report has identified a few issues which ought to be addressed in order to take the field of philanthropy forward.
