ADC Matching Fund Scheme (9/2020) Open for Application
Closing Date: 6pm, 30 September 2020 (Wednesday)
ADC Matching Fund Scheme (MFS), with an aim to provide incentives for small and medium arts organisations to explore diversified funding sources from non-government organisations for sustainable development and create a supportive environment for the arts and culture in the community, is now open for application. With the matching ratio of 1:1.5 at most, a matching grant of up to HK$2.25 million may be provided to arts group which secures HK$30,000 to HK$1.5 million cash donation/sponsorship for carrying out its approved arts project.
MFS supports projects of different art forms and facilitates the arts groups to take part in the Home Affairs Bureau’s Art Development Matching Grants Scheme.
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 the HKADC’s 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. By far, 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. 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, 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 HKADC's website (http://www.hkadc.org.hk/?p=15042&lang=en). Applications submitted in person must be deposited in the collection box at HKADC Administration Office on or before 30 September 2020 (Wednesday) 6pm. Submission by post or by courier will only be accepted if postmarked or if the pickup date shown on the bill is no later than the closing date. Late applications will not be considered.
