Dear CUHK Alumni,*Details
about the sixth round of Matching Grant Scheme are still subject to the
final confirmation from the University Grants Committee.
I would like to
give you an update on my last appeal inviting you all to join me in
donating $6,000 in full or partially to our alma mater to support
the newly launched I•CARE Programme. I am thrilled to share with you the
At the Chinese New Year Media Reception on
30 January, Professor Joseph Sung, Vice-Chancellor and President of CUHK,
together with all Pro-Vice-Chancellors and Faculty Deans joined hands to
each donate a red packet containing $1,000 to the I• CARE Programme. They
expressed their hopes that 10,000 alumni will follow their example and
each donate $1,000 too, which will synergize our efforts and inject
another $10 million into the I•CARE Programme.
I would also like to
share with you another exciting development. Chow Tai Fook Charity
Foundation (CTF Foundation) has pledged to donate $10 million to match our
donations to support the I•CARE Programme. This is particularly
significant because when we take into consideration the recent
announcement by the Financial Secretary of the HKSAR Government that the
sixth round of Matching Grant Scheme* will start in July this year, every
$1 donated by you will actually be worth $3 ($1 from CTF Foundation and $1
from HKSAR Government matching fund).
On this joyous Valentine's
Day, I sincerely appeal to you all once again to join me in showing our
appreciation to our alma mater by donating to the I•CARE
Programme. This is a very worthwhile cause which aims to promote students'
holistic development through social and civic engagements in Hong Kong,
Mainland China and overseas.
