To celebrate HKUST’s 25th anniversary, we have set an ambitious goal to raise HKD $25 million for the Alumni Endowment Fund (AEF) by 2017. Paving the way for this initiative is Professor Roger King, PhD alumnus and adjunct professor of Finance in the Business School, who has pledged a matching gift of HKD $2.5 million for the 2015/16 campaign.
Roger likes to claim himself as one of the oldest graduates of HKUST. But for those who know him, he is always young at heart, exemplifying the can-do spirit of HKUST. The $2.5 million pledge is another example to demonstrate his devotion to HKUST. For every dollar you donate, Roger will contribute an equal amount up to $2.5 million. We encourage our alumni to take advantage of this matching offer and donate to the AEF today. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will benefit our talented students for years to come.
Thanks to the generosity of our alumni over the past few years, the AEF currently stands at HK $19 million. This sum will generate over $660,000 in interest this year, all of which will go towards providing various opportunities for students to make the most of their university life.
Show your belief in HKUST – donate to the AEF today to make a difference in the life of students!
