The Hong Kong Far East Masonic Benelovent Fund Corporation (HKFEMBFC) is a fully-fledged charity, governed by statute and by-laws. It has an extensive portfolio that is managed 'in house' by its own Trustees
Each year it disburses about HKD1.5m in Masonic giving and HKD0.5m in non-Masonic giving. It relies upon investment income and to an extent, lodge donations, although these are only just beginning to increase above a nominal level. No freemason or his dependant will receive Masonic charity unless the 'pinch of poverty' is being felt.
