Why can you trust HKFP?
✓ Immune to censorship: HKFP is answerable only to readers – we have no investors, no shareholders, no tycoons, no mainland owners or umbrella company behind us. Our independence means we are fully resistant to censorship and self-censorship.
✓ Non-profit model: As a non-profit, limited by guarantee company, any surplus we make is recycled back into the company. We are run by journalists and immune to commercial and political pressure.
✓ Transparent & efficient: We are the city’s most transparent news outlet – we undergo an external audit each year and publish an annual Transparency Report. 84 per cent of income comes from donations, whilst 81 per cent of spending goes simply towards paying journalists. Teamwork, automation, partnerships and the use of free digital tools keep our costs down.
✓ Accurate & accountable: We ensure everything we publish includes a balance of viewpoints in order to avoid any bias. All facts, quotes and figures are properly attributed to the source, often with links to the original material. Our own opinions are kept out of our copy, whilst we act quickly and transparently to correct errors. HKFP avoids sensationalism and clickbait, and clearly marks paid-for content as “sponsored.” Accuracy and fairness are our top priorities.
HKFP will always be free to access – we will never put up a paywall. Read our news but are unable to support our fundraiser this year? Please help us spread the word by sharing this page.
