The Club has been contributing to the betterment of Hong Kong for over a century, both directly and through The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.

Through its unique integrated business model and thanks to its strong operational performance the Club is able to contribute substantially. In 2022/23, the Club’s Charities Trust approved a total of HK$7.3 billion in donations to 247 charity and community projects. The Charities Trust is one of the world’s top ten charity donors.

To create lasting impact, the Charities Trust has initiated and implemented its own Trust-initiated Projects working in conjunction with the HKSAR Government, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), academia and community partners. Taking into account existing and evolving social needs, its strategic focus is presently on: Positive Ageing & Elderly Care; Youth Development & Poverty Alleviation; Healthy Community; Talent & Sector Development; and Sports & Culture.

In times of crisis, the Club steps forward to protect the most vulnerable and build community resilience. When Hong Kong was hit by SARS in 2003, the Club provided emergency support for hygiene measures and in the aftermath funded the construction of the Centre for Health Protection. Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the Club addressed community needs in a speedy, targeted, and innovative manner. This included funding care packs, fast-tracking support for front-line agencies, and helping affected groups such as students, first-time jobseekers, the elderly and the food insecure.
