Giving to the Rainbow Fund

Giving to the Rainbow Fund

The Community Chest Rainbow Fund is an emergency relief fund initiated by The Community Chest of Hong Kong in early 2004. The Fund provides direct and rapid assistance to community members with financial difficulties due to accidents or natural disasters, when other sources of help may not be immediately available.

In Hong Kong, all residents 18 years or older receive financial assistance from the HKSAR government as part of an economic stimulus fund. The Community Chest of Hong Kong encouraged the community to support The Community Chest and give to Rainbow Fund to help advance the common good in the communities. With the assistance of its 18 social welfare agency partners who offer a total of 74 assessment centers, the Chest has allocated over HK$46 million to over 12,500 families since its creation.
