New Community Chest fund set up for smaller charities
Smaller charities will be able to tap into a new fund set up by the Community Chest from this year to 2021. Each charity will receive up to $50,000 a year for two years. The fund was announced on Feb 5.
Community Chest Charity Support Fund will go to 60 charities from 2018 to 2021.
The money is meant to run programmes that empower social service users and families, support their capital expenses to improve service quality and efficiency, and build their capability for community engagements to benefit service users, Community Chest said.
