'Name a Desk' and multiply your support through the Government's Matching Grant Scheme  

The Government's Sixth Matching Grant Scheme is launched on 1 August. The OUHK invites all its community members to continue their support towards the New College project by sending us timely gifts for the 'Name a Desk' fundraising campaign. This will help us reap the most from the Grant, so that more resources will be available for financing the project.

*Donors who contribute $6,000 or above towards the 'Name a Desk' fundraising campaign will be acknowledged with their names to be printed on a desk in one of the lecture halls of the New College.
