Chung Chi’s endowment is significant but is just enough to provide 1,400 student residence places and run current student programmes. Extra funding is needed to pilot new programmes and campus improvement.
We are deeply grateful for the philanthropy of donors to the College in making a difference to students’ lives. However, the majority of gifts is designated to specific purposes, such as bursaries and scholarships received by over 1,000 awardees each year. While receiving an adequate amount of philanthropy for such purpose, sincerely we expect philanthropy for other timely needs of the College. Expendable gifts provide vital flexibility.
Chung Chi College has been emphasizing whole-person development of its students beyond academic pursuits. In view of the changing needs of students, Chung Chi College is striving to provide its students the best learning environment and opportunities by establishing state-of-art and up-to-date facilities and programmes. However, continuous betterment has a cost which mainly relies on donations.
We welcome all philanthropy regardless of its monetary meaning. Because we believe many a little makes a mickle. Together they add up to millions for Chung Chi students’ non-formal learning opportunities and other financial aid.
