    Donations for campus phase two reach $136 million

    Since the launch of the campus extension project, the OUHK has received enormous support from various sectors of the community. Two major donations made recently by the University's Honorary Doctor Dato' Dr Cheng Yu-tung and philanthropist Mr Solomon Lee pushed the total donation amount to $136 million. Dr Cheng, a renowned entrepreneur held in high regard in the business sector, is Chairman of New World Development Company Limited, New World Hotels (Holdings) Limited and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises Limited. He sponsored many OUHK academic projects before this $35 million donation, which is one of the largest for campus development and therefore critical for its smooth progress.

    At the donation ceremony on 8 February, Dr Cheng said, 'I've always felt that lifelong learning should be encouraged, as investing in learning is the wisest choice with the highest return. What you have learned can be used throughout your whole life.' He called on young people to take advantage of the study opportunities provided by the OUHK to broaden their horizons in the world of knowledge and advance with the times.

    Our long-standing supporter Mr Solomon Lee donated $10 million on 1 March for the campus extension and student assistance. Mr Lee is a veteran industrialist who is following in the footsteps of his late father, famous entrepreneur and philanthropist Mr Lee Chi-ho, by taking an active part in community services. He is currently Vice President of the Scout Association of Hong Kong and President of the Association's Hong Kong Island Region. Mr Lee has been contributing to the bursary grants for needy OUHK students since 1998, and has made a significant contribution to developing education in Hong Kong and mainland China. He holds fast to the belief that education has a vital role to play in the advancement of a society and the quality of its people.

    As the OUHK has taken a $120 million interest-free loan from the Government to pay for part of the construction cost for the new campus, the University is continuing its fund-raising efforts so as to reduce its loan repayment burden in future.
