The program encourages HKEX employees to volunteer, providing a platform for staff to participate in community service activities, thereby extending the reach of HKEX’s community work beyond financial assistance.
HKEX organizes and participates in fundraising activities to support its community projects. This includes initiatives like charity runs, fundraising galas, and the unique Stock Code for Charity Scheme, where special stock codes are auctioned to raise funds for the programme.
The program prioritizes areas such as education, poverty relief, environmental conservation, and the promotion of social innovation and inclusion.
