Our founding member, Christine Bowers (aka Chris B), has been organising and running live music events in Hong Kong since 2004, over 350 events during the past 17 years with her company The Underground Limited.
我們的創辦人，Christine Bowers（亦名為Chris B），自2004年起已致力策劃及籌辦香港的現場音樂活動。在過去的17年間，她以其公司之名The Underground Limited舉辦了超過350項活動。
In August 2020, she undertook a survey to find out how many professional musicians were suffering due to Covid-19. The one week survey (646 people participated) revealed that 62% of them were full-time musicians and 82% of them had been in that career for more than 5 years. Over 7% of these musicians had become homeless or were in the process of being evicted.
This led to numerous emails and phone calls to Legislative Councilors and face-to-face meetings. The last meeting was with Mr Casper Tsui, Secretary for Home Affairs. All these meetings highlighted how professional musicians have no official representation or body in Hong Kong.
Upon researching the situation in other countries, it became clear that a non-profit focused on helping musicians during difficult times would be beneficial to the community and offer relief to career musicians.
As of 22nd April 2022, Musicians Foundation has been granted charity status and exemption from tax under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance.
自2022 年 4 月 22 日起，香港政府授予Musicians Foundation屬公共性質的慈善機構，並可根據《税務條例》第 88 條獲豁免繳税。
