Community

At Optimas, we not only strive to do our best in everything we do but also to make a positive impact with everything we do. Optimas Foundation was set up in 2018 with the objective to give back to our world and to build more sustainable and prosperous communities.

Every year, Optimas is committed to donate at least 1% of the performance fee via Optimas Foundation to pursue community charitable programmes and projects. We also offer various opportunities for our employees to give back either through employee community services and/or donation matching programs.

Providing anti-pandemic resources to support the society

Amid the raging spread of COVID-19 in Hong Kong, there has been a lack of anti-pandemic resources in the city. Dedicated to fighting the virus alongside its community, Optimas Foundation has donated 20,000 rapid antigen test kits to various children education and rehabilitation agencies charities, including Heep Hong Society, Hong Kong Blind Union, Feeding Hong Kong, Mother's Choice and Caritas Hong Kong. These resources have been primarily distributed to targeted groups during this challenging period to ease the financial burden for those in need.

We are grateful to have this opportunity to contribute to this worthy cause and fight the pandemic with Hong Kong.

Fight the Pandemic

At the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020, there was a shortage of face masks and other medical supplies in Hong Kong. Optimas Foundation purchased and sourced face masks and disinfected wet tissues and donated to over 10 charities including Feeding Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Society for the Aged, the Hong Kong Society for the Blind, Helping Hand, Heep Hong Society, J Life Foundation Limited, 佛教法光中心, etc.

We made donations to other charitable organizations included Caritas Hong Kong in response to their urgent call for “Support Italy” and Mother’s Choice to support its operations which was adversely affected due to the pandemic.
