About Us

    In May 2022, St. James' Settlement was funded by SIE Fund to launch a one-stop digital search and application system to maximise the impact of poverty alleviation in a new charity ecosystem. We aim that this new charity operating model can connect different stakeholders including beneficiaries, NGOs and funders. Beneficiaries can enjoy convenience, dignity and diversity of choices in a centralised digital platform for searching and applying for subsidy programmes and receiving subsidies.

Charity-To-Give aims to provide food subsidies to individuals and/or deprived families in need on a short-term basis. Each beneficiary will receive eight batches of subsidy with their registered Octopus card and spend at eligible merchants. The first batch of subsidy will be released to the Octopus card of the beneficiary, and the remaining seven batches of subsidy will be reimbursed according to the eligible spending amount of the beneficiary in the past week. The maximum subsidy for each batch is HK$400.
