HKBU raises HK$589 million under the 6th Matching Grant Scheme
19 Sep 2014
 

 

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

Thanks to the immense support from all of you, the University has attained an impressive result in the two-year Sixth Matching Grant Scheme launched by the HKSAR Government.  We have successfully raised HK$381 million in donations and secured HK$208 million in matching funds, bringing additional resources of HK$589 million in total to the University.  In terms of the total sum we have received, HKBU ranks fourth (please click) among the 17 participating tertiary institutions, with a remarkable growth of 165% from the last round of the Scheme.  This record-breaking result achieved by HKBU under the six rounds of the Scheme will surely provide great impetus for the University's long-term development.

The increased number of participating institutions and the longer duration of the Scheme than before have resulted in ever keener competition for funding among the institutions.  Despite this difficult situation, it is gratifying that members of the University community have made concerted efforts to solicit support from the community at large.  Without the tremendous support from friends of the University, individuals, organisations and charitable foundations, it would hardly have been possible for HKBU to achieve this encouraging fundraising result.  On behalf of the staff and students of the University, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our donors for your generosity and contributions.

All donations together with the matching funds will help the University contribute significantly to society through its endeavours in delivering quality teaching and learning, fostering innovative research and serving the community.  This year marks the 5th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Baptist University Foundation.  The Foundation will remain committed to sustaining all available funding sources for the University, enabling it to forge ahead and scale new heights.

You are most welcome to join the HKBU Foundation and/or invite your friends and relatives to join our family.  If you have any fundraising initiatives that you wish to share with us, 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 frankfu@hkbu.edu.hk or Mrs. Lily Chan, Director of University Advancement, at 3411-7878 or lilychan@hkbu.edu.hk.

Yours sincerely,

Albert S.C. Chan
President & Vice-Chancellor
