Every year, the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust (Trust) makes funds available to the Chief Executive for allocation to projects of benefit to the community. The Trust is now calling for applications for the Chief Executive’s Community Project List 2014.
Each application should include the following information –
The general selection criteria for the selection of projects are set out at Annex A. A guidance note on how to complete the Project Form is enclosed at Annex C.
Please note that priority will be given to projects with nil or minimal recurrent implications. In view of the Trust’s preference for supporting more sizable projects, projects costing less than $10 million will normally be accorded a low priority and are therefore unlikely to be selected. In addition, applications which were repeatedly re-submitted in the past few years will stand a low chance of success.
For 2014, priority for funding will be given to the theme of youth such as youth development activities, support services for youth and youth training programmes, etc. Applications which fall outside the thematic area will also be considered.
The result of the application, after final endorsement by the Trust, is expected to be available in July 2014. Approved projects should generally commence within six months after acceptance of the Trust’s donation. The approved fund will be disbursed as reimbursement of project expenses rather than as a lump sum grant.
Completed applications should be forwarded to Knowledge Transfer Office for comments by 5 September 2013 (Thursday). The recommended applications will then be submitted to the University Grants Committee for consideration and eventual submission to the Trust for approval.
