Since 1915 The Hong Kong Jockey Club has contributed substantial funds towards charitable and worthy causes that benefitted Hong Kong's society. True to the "Racing for Charity" mission, each year surplus earnings from the racing season are allocated to The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust which serves as the administrator for the Club's charitable donations.
The range and diversity of recipient projects and programmes reflect the Club's objective which is to add value where it will provide the greatest benefit to society as a whole. The Jockey Club serves many core areas of civic and social needs, with each year focusing on a specific segment of society. Working through and with Government and non-profit agencies, The Jockey Club through these areas is able to bring a better quality of life to the people of Hong Kong and immediate relief to those most in need.
In addition to this ongoing work, the Club also proactively identifies and generates projects that anticipate future community and social needs.
