Azalea (1972) Endowment Fund

The Azalea (1972) Endowment Fund was set up by alumni Mr Lawrence Fung Siu-por and Mrs Alexandra Fung Lee Suk-wai who graduated from the Faculty of Social Sciences at HKU in 1972. One of the HKU projects that the Azalea Fund supports is the “First-in-the-Family Education Fund”.

“It was only a modest gift and the least we could do for our alma mater. It will be nice if everyone could give back to their schools where they were educated, and benefit their home of Hong Kong,” said Mr Fung.

兩位 1972 年社會科學學院畢業生馮紹波先生和他的太太李淑慧女士成立「杜鵑 ( 1972 ) 基金」。其中一項資助項目為「第一代大學生助學金」。 

馮紹波先生表示:「我倆受惠良多,是時候要回饋社會。」馮先生希望這項捐款能令母校受惠,並鼓勵更多校友回饋他們的母校,讓香港及整個社會得益。

Class of 1983 Silver Jubilee

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its graduation, the HKU Class of 1983 made a collective effort to raise funds for a meaningful cause - the “First-in-the-Family Education Fund”. Many members of the Class were the first generation in their families admitted to the University and therefore they recognised the value of the Fund. A walkathon was held in September 2008 which was followed by a reunion dinner in October.

1983年同學會銀禧紀念 – 為慶祝畢業25周年,香港大學1983年同學會為第一代大學生助學金籌款。因大部分畢業生都是當期時的第一代大學生,所以他們都確認此基金的價值及重要性。他們並在2008年9月為基金舉行步行籌款,翌年亦舉行了重聚聯歡會。

Mrs Daisy Tong (Law 1972)

“As one of the first batch of law graduates from the Department of Law (as then called) and as I am fortunate enough to have reaped the fruits of the great education from HKU and have benefited from society, I send herewith a cheque as my humble donation to the FIFE Fund.”

七二年法律系畢業生湯楊蕙蘭女士:『作為法律系首批畢業生之一,我很慶幸得到港大春風化雨,獲益良多,畢業後得以發揮所長,成就受到社會肯定。現隨附上一張支票,作為對「第一代大學生助學金」的一點心意。』

Mr Yeung Kwok-keung of Country Garden Holdings Ltd

“I would like to give back to Hong Kong society. I experienced poverty when I was young. The tuition fee for high school was $7 a month, while I only received a bursary of $2. I had no money for the bus or meals and had never worn new clothes or shoes before the age of 18. I realise that education is very important as it can drive people to excel.”

碧桂園集團有限公司主席楊國強先生:『我自己都是香港人,所以想在香港社會做點貢獻…… 年幼時我經歷貧窮的生活,中學每月7元學費,但只有2元助學金,沒錢坐車、無錢食飯、十八歲以前沒穿過新衫新鞋的經歷都試過,從一無所有到現在。我知道教育很重要,良好教育可以令人有上進心。 』

Mr Cho Chi Ming, Executive Director of Hong Kong Economic Journal

“I always wanted to be a university student when I was younger. However, due to financial constraints, I wasn’t able to realise this dream. This is my biggest regret in life. But I am glad that my two daughters helped me to realise this dream. They both graduated from HKU with first class and second class honours.”

信報執行董事曹志明:『年輕時一直「恨」做大學生,但因家庭環境欠佳,只能對大學校門「望門輕嘆」。我覺得未能成為大學生,是我一生人的遺憾。但好高興的是,後來我兩位女兒代我圓了大學夢,二人入讀港大,分別以一級及二級榮譽畢業。』
