Hong Kong Free Press is the city’s only non-profit, independent English-language newspaper. We are not beholden to any corporate entity, business tycoon or mainland Chinese conglomerate. We are answerable only to ourselves and our readers – allowing us the freedom to report without obstruction, when and where it is needed most.

Can you support us with a HK$200 monthly commitment? 

Direct funding from a diluted group of supporters is – without doubt – the best strategy when it comes to safeguarding our independence. Now you become a HKFP Patron and support our team on a monthly basis.
