CUHK Graduating Class Gift Campaign with Unprecedented Success

23 NOV 2015

We are excited to announce that the “Graduating Class Gift Campaign” of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) received enormous support from the graduating class of 2015. As of 23 November, a record high of over 1,000 graduates (more than 10% of the total number of graduates) made their first gift to their alma mater. The number of graduates who participated in the campaign is three times higher than last year, and exceeds the accumulated number of participating alumni over the past three years.

All donations solicited through this campaign will be used to support the I‧CARE programme and various meaningful causes for the enhancement of students’ learning experience at the Chinese University. The triumph of the campaign is a clear proof of the success of the I‧CARE Programme, as the class of 2015 is the first batch of students who have fully benefitted from the programme since its establishment in the academic year of 2011/12. Many alumni indicated that they are pleased to support the campaign as they enjoyed their fruitful university life at CUHK, in particular what they have learnt through the I‧CARE Programme.

“I treasure every single moment I spent at CUHK. By making this small gift, I wish to express my gratitude to my alma mater and contribute to the future development of the University,” said Benny Kwong, a graduate of the Class of 2015. We have also received positive feedback about the campaign from parents of the graduates. “I consider that it is the responsibility of alumni to give back to their alma mater, as the University has provided many resources to shape each of them into a better person,” said the father of a graduate.

Launched by the Office of Institutional Advancement, the “Graduating Class Gift Campaign” is an opportunity for the graduating class to commemorate their graduation by giving back to their alma mater. For more information about the campaign, please visit:
