What Makes AIDS Concern “Unique”?
AIDS Concern is the first NGO in Hong Kong committed to the service of AIDS-care and consultation. Since 1990, we provide services, prevention measures and education campaigns, which are specifically tailor-made for local high-risk communities.
We believe in targeting vulnerable groups in order to have maximum impact on the prevention of HIV infection in Hong Kong. AIDS Concern actively involves these groups in educating themselves about HIV/AIDS. Respect for the individual and empowerment of high risk communities are at the heart of our work.
How is AIDS Concern Funded?
About half of our income is from public donations, and half is from the Hong Kong Government AIDS Trust Fund and corporate sponsors. The latter is mostly one-off for a specific project in a designated period of time. We need your support to offer ongoing support to our target communities and sustain services not offered by the Government or other organisations.
Will my donation to AIDS Concern be tax deductible?
AIDS Concern is a public charity. Hong Kong residents can apply for tax exemption in the list of Hong Kong charities if they donate HK$100 or more. After we receive your donation, we will send you an official receipt in the form of an email for tax deduction when filing tax returns.
How Can I Know if My Donation is Properly Used?
We published annual financial reports for our donors’ and public information. As one of our monthly donors, you will receive quarterly newsletters for more details about how your donation is used and our latest development.
How is my donation used?
Your contribution is directed to support AIDS Concern’s education and support service to those in need. We operate to deliver HIV education and prevention targeting people at highest risk, provide support for people living with HIV in Hong Kong, build partnerships and capacity for an effective HIV response, as well as to create public advocacy on HIV.
When will I receive my tax receipt?
A donation receipt will be sent to you once the money is received. Please note that AIDS Concern is a registered charity in Hong Kong. For Hong Kong residents, donations of HK$100 or above are tax deductible.
Can I ‘designate’ my gift to a specific group?
Yes, you may select which fund categories you would like to donate. We respect and ensure that your donation is applied directly to a specific group or campaign. If no preference is indicated, monthly donations are generally considered undesignated funds that are applied to all services of AIDS Concern.
