Asian Charity Services is committed to supporting our fellow NGOs as we begin to adapt to our new normals. We have collated a number of resources and tools here that you may find useful.

#SupportOurChampions Community Support Platform

More than 1 million people in Hong Kong count on nonprofit organizations for basic necessities and other critical support. But almost every NGO has suffered reduced funding, and has had to reduce its services. ACS' new Community Support Platform allows NGOs to more easily share their most urgent needs. If you are an NGO and would like to participate in this Platform, please complete this Questionnaire. Please get in touch with us at champions@asiancharityservices.org if you have any questions.

We hope to encourage conversations on trust, multi-year unrestricted funding under flexible conditions and a more complete partnership between nonprofit organisations and their funders.​
