a Birthday Gift!
t is an ambitious goal – but with the incentive of HKUST’s 25th
anniversary, it can surely be reached with the alumni community
pulling together! The aim is to raise the Alumni Endowment Fund to
HK$25 million by 2017, from its current standing of HK$19 million,
thanks to donations from alumni.
An added boost comes from the pledge given by Prof Roger King,
1996 PhD(FINA) and the most senior PhD
graduate, to match donations from fellow
alumni up to HK$2.5 million. A successful
entrepreneur and renowned “corporate
doctor”, Roger is also Adjunct Professor
of Finance and Director of two research
centers of the Business School.
HKUST is blessed to benefit from
the dedication of alumni in giving back
to their alma mater. As the University
reaches the important milestone of its
first quarter-century, your continuous
support is needed to ensure that all
students can enjoy a holistic and fruitful
university life.
So show your belief in HKUST and join Roger in presenting a
birthday gift to the AEF!
The Alumni Endowment Fund (AEF) is aiming high with an ambitious target for 2017 – and with
your help and the generous pledge from the University’s most senior PhD graduate, we believe
it can be achieved!
