A journalist's HK$50 million donation for journalism
07 Oct 2020
Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) has received a HK$50 million donation from a veteran printed and broadcast journalist, and dedicated journalism teacher Mr Raymond R Wong, SBS, who made the gift in loving memory of his late wife.
The donation, the biggest single gift HKBU's School of Communication has ever received, will be used for establishing the Dorothy Shen Wong Memorial Fund. The Fund will focus on three key areas of journalism education: teaching of media ethics, professional fellowship for practising journalists, and scholarships for journalism students.
The Fund will be used to set up the first-ever Endowed Professorship in Media Ethics in Hong Kong, the first-ever Professional Journalism Fellowship at HKBU, and a number of scholarships to help students of the School of Communication to acquire global exposure. It will also support the School to organise signature events such as international summits, distinguished lecture series, master classes and training workshops.
