AWAHK Charity Events

Jan 14, 2022

It has been unprecedent challenges in the past two years during pandemic. As we take time to look back and reflect on the past year, AWAHK is continuing our core values including promotion of social responsibilities of accountancy professionals as well as charitable activities.

We are grateful for support from numerous AWAHK Honorary Advisors, Past Presidents and Council Members who put together a pool of donation fund. It is our great pleasure to announce that as of today, a total sum of HK$50,000 (“AWAHK Charity Fund”) is now pledged to support charitable organizations in need! This pool of kindness is growing as more and more AWAHK friends and supporters are generously pledging along. It is truly encouraging to receive these supports and witness the solidarity of the profession!

How does the AWAHK Charity Fund work?

AWAHK shall support the identified NGOs (“Charity Partners”) in the following way(s):

(a) For every dollar donated by AWAHK members to these Charity Partners, AWAHK will match the donation with funding available from AWAHK Charity Fund. For instance, if member donated HK$100, AWAHK shall match the amount by donating HK$100 from the AWAHK Charity Fund. Donation reminders shall also be included in all AWAHK events/seminars/webinars registration forms.

(b) AWAHK shall donate amount approved by AWAHK Council to the Charity Partners subject to available amounts in AWAHK Charity Fund.

(c) Volunteer works/projects shall be co-organized by AWAHK and the Charity Partners. AWAHK members shall be invited to participate where pandemic measures allow.


AWAHK has now identified two NGOs below as Charity Partners and the list of Charity Partners shall be reviewed and expanded from time to time.

(1) Food Angel by Bo Charity Foundation (惜食堂)

Food Angel rescues edible surplus food from different sectors of the food industry that would otherwise be disposed of as waste. Following strict safety protocols, the rescued food items will then be prepared as nutritious meals in its central kitchen and be redistributed to serve the underprivileged communities in Hong Kong.
