Hong Kong Ballet
The Hong Kong Ballet, a leading ballet in Hong Kong, has been performing for 30 years, but still operates with a small budget. Bain recently helped the ballet conduct a strategic review of the organization’s full potential and developed recommended organizational requirements, fundraising efforts and board composition.
Founded by film star Jet Li, One Foundation has a strategic partnership with the Red Cross Society of China. This charity organization operates under the slogan "one person + one dollar/yuan + one month = one big family." Bain has been working with One Foundation since 2007 as a strategic partner, involved in various projects like mass-market fundraising and marketing strategy, organizational development, new business model redesign, a "One Foundation Charity Award" evaluation mechanism and social enterprise.

Fundraising and volunteering
Our Greater China offices also support local charities through fundraising and volunteering efforts. In Shanghai and Beijing, team members volunteer on weekends and evenings to teach at local migrant children’s schools. Each summer, the Hong Kong office holds an auction with items like rounds of golf, dinners and vintage wines donated for bidding. The proceeds go toward a local charity chosen by our office. The Hong Kong office also holds an annual Christmas party for the children at a local orphanage.
