Opening Doors Together for 25 Years

A quarter century ago, several proud University of Toronto alumni and friends came together with a shared vision—to help brilliant Hong Kong students in need receive a transformative education at U of T, one of the world’s top-ranked universities. Since then, through the generosity of its supporters around the world, the University of Toronto (Hong Kong) Foundation Scholarships have helped more than 80 deserving students attend U of T, where they receive a world-class education that enables them to become leaders in their professions and their communities.

In celebration of the U of T (Hong Kong) Foundation’s 25th anniversary, U of T President Meric Gertler, Foundation Chair, Daisy Ho and Vice-President Advancement, David Palmer joined past and present scholars in a fireside chat to discuss the Foundation’s incredible impact on talented Hong Kong students.

Your gift will be matched!

The U of T (Hong Kong) Foundation is calling on its dedicated community of friends and supporters to help ensure deserving Hong Kong students get a chance to attend U of T regardless of financial need. As part of the HK Match campaign, when you give to the Foundation Scholarships, Foundation chairman Daisy C.F. Ho (MBA 1990) and her brother Lawrence Ho (BA 1999) will personally match every gift. This generous commitment presents an invaluable opportunity for donors to double their impact on deserving Hong Kong students and will allow the Foundation to expand its existing scholarship so that it fully covers tuition and living costs.

“I know first-hand the value of a University of Toronto education, how it builds confidence and broadens your perspective on the world. In meeting U of T (Hong Kong) Foundation scholars over the years, I can see not only how important this scholarship is for the students themselves, but also for the people, businesses and societies they lead and inspire each and every day, whether in Hong Kong or around the globe.” —Daisy C.F. Ho (MBA 1990)

“Quality education has never been more important, both to its young recipients and the communities, industries and services that benefit from continually improving standards. That’s why we’re delighted to match the gifts of our generous donor community to provide Hong Kong’s most promising students a successful path, not just in their careers, but in their lives.” —Lawrence Ho (BA 1999)
