About The HKRU Community Foundation: The HKRU Community Foundation was established in March 2013 with the aim of providing a separate identifiable vehicle to manage the HKRU’s charitable activities. This was done to achieve the dual objectives of promoting the positive influence the HKRU has on the community and encouraging corporate and social responsibility funds to assist in these programmes to allow their continuation and expansion. The Foundation aims to be a regional leader in the area of sport-for-development, using rugby as a medium to tackle social issues and effect change. The Foundation also hosts an annual “Ruck’N’Roll Charity Ball” at the HKCEC in support of Po Leung Kuk, more details at www.rucknrollcharityball.org

po leung kukAbout Po Leung Kuk: “Po Leung”, translating literally as protection of the young and the innocent, represents the core vision of the organization. Formally established as the Society for the Protection of Women and Children in 1880, in Po Leung Kuk’s long history they have prevented and resolved kidnappings, protected destitute women and children, and assisted the Secretary for Chinese Affairs (under British Rule) as a mediator in complex family and marriage disputes.

In line with the economic development of Hong Kong over the past century, the range of services and coverage that Po Leung Kuk provided to the community constantly expanded as welfare needs evolved. Today, Po Leung Kuk is Hong Kong’s leading social service organization and fundraiser. Under a modern corporatized management structure, Po Leung Kuk is able to utilise donation dollars to maximize the returns to their most important stakeholder – the community.
