Operation Santa Claus (OSC) is an annual charity campaign jointly organised by the South China Morning Post (SCMP) and Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK). It aims to support the Hong Kong community and beyond, through the combined charitable fundraising power of two of Hong Kong’s most respected news organisations.

We are now calling for a new round of funding proposals:

  • Maximum funding amount per project is HK$1 Million

We welcome projects

  • Providing children, youth, elderly, physical and mental disability services (either one)
  • Focusing on sustainability or innovative education (such as STEM)
