HER Mission HER Fund is a helping hand to the most neglected women and girls in Hong Kong. Founded in 2004, we provide capacity building, leadership training and small grants to grassroots organizations led by and serving the most disadvantaged. We also increase the visibility of marginalized women and girls—and the issues they face. We prioritize people who are undervalued by society and issues that are hidden and even unpopular—because we believe that our values shine brightest when applied to the most marginalized among us.

HER Work As a community foundation, HER Fund mobilizes resources from Hong Kong’s private sector and like-minded individuals. Donations from our generous funders support: Grant-Making We give grants—typically HK$30,000 to HK$50,000—to grassroots groups who rarely have access to funding from companies, foundations or individuals so they can achieve their goals and make change. Capacity Building We provide training in governance, financial management, relationship building, fundraising and communications so grassroots women can turn their passion and ideas into action. Leadership Training We foster leadership skills such as resilience to tackle the extreme stress and burnout that many community leaders face. Awareness Raising We increase the visibility of marginalized women and girls— and build an understanding of the challenges they face.
