For donation made to MSI offices outside of Hong Kong, please contact MSI Regional Representatives.
Use of donations for various purposes:
Donations to support a project or program
The total amount will be channeled to the designated projects or programmes without deduction of any administrative fees by the Headquarters.
Donations sent without specified use
We welcome donations that are not designated for specific use. MSI will allocate such non-designated donations to the most needed projects or programmes.
Use of donations to meet Office operating expenses
Office operation of our headquarters in Hong Kong is essential in providing back-up service, member-development and other related project supports. The expenses of office operation can be broadly classified into manpower costs and administration costs. All the expenses are met through the generous donations of supporters, associates and other charitable institutions. Our staff and employees serve sacrificially and are willing to accept “below-market” allowance or support. Thus we do wish to encourage donors to designate gifts for general office operation which includes support of office staff. We try to keep the operating costs as low as possible by utilising staff in multiple duties and finding the most economical way to print and post our publications to supporters.
We carefully and ethically handle the gifts our supporters entrust to us by maintaining appropriate systems of accountability and by seeking to maximise their intended use.
