Giving to HKA
HKA is lucky to have a generous community who supports the school in many ways. Recognizing this, the school has developed a Culture of Philanthropy to provide a framework for all fundraising and volunteering programmes at the school.
HKA's Culture of Philanthropy
Hong Kong Academy recognizes that everyone contributes to the life of the school in different ways and values all gifts to the school, whether of time, talent, or financial resources. The community-centered, co-operative values that inspired the school’s founders continue to shape HKA today. Each member of the community is a gift to the school, and HKA appreciates everyone for their roles in making HKA a positive and dynamic learning environment.
HKA seeks every opportunity to say thank you to those who give generously of their time, expertise, and resources, including faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, former families, and others associated with the school. The school seeks to say thank you in ways that respect HKA’s sense of community and its many cultural backgrounds and contexts. HKA stresses the importance of the personal thank you over public recognition and offers public recognition that matches the school’s vision and values.
Each year, parents organize an annual fundraiser, typically held in November. The funds raised at this fun-filled evening support the operational budget for the school, providing support for professional development programmes, additional educational resources, or other projects in need of funding.

Building for the Future
Starting in 2010, HKA embarked on a fundraising campaign in support of the school's new purpose-built campus in Sai Kung. The campaign will run through December 2013. There are many different ways to get involved with Building for the Future, and more details can be found here.
