Mega Donation from HKJC for Teaching Hospital and Institute of Ageing

CUHK has received a generous donation of HK$1.3 billion from the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) Charities Trust for the development of the territory's first not-for-profit and self-financed teaching hospital, which aims to serve the public and enhance the quality of teaching and research. This is the largest single donation ever made by the HKJC to a medical project in Hong Kong, and is also the greatest single donation ever received by CUHK. The HKJC will further donate HK$12 million to support the establishment of the CUHK Jockey Club Institute of Ageing. The Club's CADENZA Project director Prof. Jean Woo will serve as the director of the Institute.

A donation ceremony was held on 21 August, officiated by Mr. T. Brian Stevenson (3rd left), chairman of the HKJC; Mr. Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges (2nd right), chief executive officer of the HKJC; Mr. Douglas So (1st left), executive director, the Charities of HKJC; Dr. Vincent H.C.
