THE HONG KONG JOCKEY CLUB CHARITIES TRUST

Founded in 1884, The Hong Kong Jockey Club is a world-class racing club that acts continuously for the betterment of our society. The Club has a unique integrated business model, comprising racing and racecourse entertainment, a membership club, responsible sports wagering and lottery, and charities and community contribution. Through this model, the Club generates economic and social value for the community and supports the Government in combatting illegal gambling. It is Hong Kong’s largest single taxpayer, one of the city’s major employers, and its Charities Trust is also one of the world’s top ten charitable donors. 

Working with the Government, non-governmental organisations and community partners, the Club’s Charities Trust proactively seeks out the root causes of social issues, bringing multiple and cross-sectoral parties together to address them through innovative approaches. While continuing to fund a wide range of projects, the Trust is placing special emphasis on four areas of strategic focus:

Youth – Empowering youth for a hopeful future

Elderly – Building an age-friendly Hong Kong

Sports – Promoting active participation and sportsmanship, making sports fun and accessible to all

Arts, Culture & Heritage – Building a culturally vibrant Hong Kong, enriching lives and promoting social inclusion

THE HONG KONG JOCKEY CLUB SCHOLARSHIPS

Established in 1998, the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships are dedicated to nurturing local talent. Under this Trust-Initiated Project, some HK$400 million in scholarships has so far been awarded to more than 500 young people to pursue their studies. The project has grown significantly over the past twenty years, expanding to include students with special educational needs, vocational education students and postgraduate students at the University of Oxford and Harvard University.

The Scholarships reward outstanding students, known as JC Scholars, for their intellect, character, leadership qualities and commitment to service. A Scholarship Secretariat has been set up to provide the Scholars with opportunities for learning, personal development and social service. It endeavours to help them become future community leaders.
