Our Hong Kong Foundation (Chinese: 團結香港基金) is a Hong Kong think tank established in 2014 by former chief executive Tung Chee-hwa. It conducts research in land, housing, economic development, innovation and technology, social innovation, mainland/Hong Kong economies, art innovation, and aging society. Its stated mission is to "study public policies that affect Hong Kong’s overall interests, identify sustainable solutions to meet its future development needs and advocate to promote social consensus".[1]

In the University of Pennsylvania's 2016 Global Go To Think Tanks Report, Our Hong Kong Foundation ranked the highest amongst all Hong Kong-based think tanks[2] and listed in the Think Tank to Watch in 2017 achievement category[3].
