Message from the Chairman of SPE Fundraising Committee
In order to provide a better environment for the whole person development of our students, we are undertaking a School Enhancement Project to upgrade our buildings and facilities on all fronts. The St. Paul’s College Foundation had set up a special Fundraising Committee to raise the estimated $400 million needed for this Project. It is my honour to be appointed as the Chairman of the Fundraising Committee.
On behalf of the Committee, I would like to share with you the current status of the School Enhancement Project and our Fundraising Campaigns.
The fundraising of the School Enhancement Project is divided into four distinct campaigns. Campaign One would target for $90 million, which is mainly for the expansion of the 36 Forms 1-6 classrooms, each by a 24% in-floor area. In the last few months, the Fundraising Committee had worked very hard, and I am happy to be the bearer of the exciting news that with your support we have reached our target for this Campaign. It is particularly encouraging that we have received support from alumni of different eras. In addition, apart from financial contributions, many gave us valuable ideas and suggestions, all for the benefit of St. Paul’s, a clear demonstration of our strong brotherhood spirit.
Campaign Two will commence after we raise an additional $30 million dollars, of which I am cautiously optimistic that it is achievable. The main features for this Campaign are the construction of a new front entrance and foyer, an indoor swimming pool, the relocation of offices and the building of a modern library. The funding requirement for this stage is $86million and the completion date is scheduled to coincide with the 170th Anniversary Celebration of our College in 2021.
We look forward to your support for St. Paul’s and please let us know if you have any suggestions or comments. For more details, please visit our website www.spc-foundation.org.hk or email to email@example.com.
