我們誠意邀請您以捐款或其他方式 (包括提供就業、實習或社區服務機會) 支持我們的畢業生。您的支持和鼓勵對他們而言實在意義重大! 如欲支持「2020年畢業生支援基金」,請按此。 


The outbreak of COVID-19 has threatened the well-being of every one in Hong Kong and beyond. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our 2020 graduates have missed some valuable opportunities associated with a normal university life.  Moreover, the pandemic has casted a shadow over the future of this year’s graduates who will face a shrinking job market this summer.

In order to support our 2020 graduates in dealing with the adverse economic impact of the pandemic, the President and the Vice-President have decided to donate 10% of their annual salary to initiate the “Support Fund for 2020 Graduates” with a target of HK$5 million for the benefits of over 600 graduates this year.

We sincerely appeal to every one of you, as an invaluable member of the Lingnan community, to join hands with us.  Your generous support in making a donation to the Fund or providing other non-monetary contributions, be they job, internship or community service opportunities, will be extremely meaningful and important to our graduating students.  Please click here to show your support!

Should you have any enquiries about the Fund, please click here to visit our website or contact our colleagues at 2616-8976 or Thank you very much in advance for your support.
