ADC Matching Fund Scheme (3/2020) Open for Application
Closing Date: 15 April 2020 (Wednesday) 6:00pm
The Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) announces a raise of the matching ratio of one-to-one to 1:1.5 to successful Matching Fund Scheme (MFS) recipients to encourage corporate sponsorship and private philanthropy in supporting arts development of Hong Kong. A maximum of $2.25million matching grants may be provided to one arts group which secures $1.5million cash donation/sponsorship for carrying out its approved arts project.
The MFS seeks to help small and medium sized arts groups to enhance their ability in widening the funding source to private and business sectors, and hence sustainability in the long run. With a wide entry bracket of $30,000 to $1.5million of cash donations/ sponsorships from the non-government sectors, the MFS supports and facilitates the arts groups as well as the donors/sponsors of the arts.
MFS accepts applications from the following categories of arts groups：
(a) The arts groups currently receiving or which have received in the past three years grants under HKADC’s One-Year/ Two-Year/ Three-Year Grant Scheme or the Literary Arts Platform Scheme; or
(b) The arts groups currently receiving grants under HKADC’s Project Grant, which are not included in (a) above. These Applicants should also be the charitable institutions and trusts of a public character which are exempt from tax under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance (Cap 112); or
(c) Other arts groups not included in (a) and (b) above but with proven track record of promoting arts and culture in Hong Kong, led and managed by professional arts practitioners of reputation and recognition, with status of charitable institutions and trusts of a public character, which are exempt from tax under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance (Cap 112).
The MFS continues to take two rounds of application in March and September in each financial year. In the last seven rounds of funding exercises spanning across three years, the MFS has been supporting over 100 arts projects. The MFS has successfully drawn attention from the private sectors, empowering the arts groups/ practitioners to produce innovative programmes and engaging a wider scope of audience. Supported by the Home Affairs Bureau, the increased 150% matching is intended to further motivate the arts groups to pledge commercial sponsorship/ private donation in order to realize their dream projects and enhance sustainability.
Interested arts groups are advised to refer to the Guide to Application, Form and FAQ which can be obtained from the HKADC Administration Office (10/F, 1063 King’s Road, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong) or downloaded from the HKADC website (http://www.hkadc.org.hk/?p=15042&lang=en). Completed applications together with all required documents and information must be received by HKADC by 6pm the latest on or before Wednesday, 15 April 2020. Late applications will not be considered.
