Message from The President and Vice-Chancellor on the Sixth Matching Grant Scheme
18 Jun 2013


Dear Colleagues, Alumni, HKBU Foundation Members and Friends of the University, 

As you may be aware, the HKSAR Government has launched the Sixth Matching Grant Scheme since 1 August 2012 until 31 July 2014.  I am thrilled to inform you that more than 1,200 donors have made generous donations to the University in the past year and we have succeeded in securing the "floor" amount of HK$60 million in matching funds at the launch of the Scheme.  Despite this initial success, we have to continue our efforts in competing for the government funds on a 2:1 matching basis during the two-year period.  As advised by the University Grants Committee, the balance of uncommitted funds (after setting aside funds to meet the outstanding "floor" amount of institutions) available for matching on a first-come, first-served basis is around HK$200 million only as of late April 2013.

In light of the reducing amount of the uncommitted matching funds, we have to seize the last opportunity to compete with other institutions for the remaining funds.  As such, I would like to invite your valuable assistance in boosting our fundraising efforts so that the University can gain the maximum benefit from the ongoing Matching Grant Scheme.

If you would like to make a donation or have any fundraising ideas, please feel free to contact Professor Frank Fu, Associate Vice-President and Secretary-General of the Hong Kong Baptist University Foundation, at 3411-7002 or or Mrs. Lily Chan, Director of University Advancement, at 3411-7878 or

Let us continue with our concerted efforts to acquire more funding resources to sustain the University's development in all spheres of its endeavours for nurturing young leaders for our society.

Yours sincerely,

Albert S.C. Chan
President & Vice-Chancellor
