Save and Give Fund
Dear Fu Jen Alumni Community:
On behalf of the Fu Jen University Foundation, I would like to extend warm holiday greetings to you and your families.
As you may have read in the news, the new Fu Jen University Hospital is now up and running. This is the largest Fu Jen University project undertaken since the re-opening of Fu Jen Catholic University in Xinzhuang. The hospital promises to be a platform for integrating the many resources our campus has to offer, and President Chiang and the Hospital Management Committee are working around the clock to make this a reality soon.
Fu Jen’s mission has always been to bring out the best in its students in terms of their academics, extracurricular pursuits, and personal development so that they can continue to flourish once they finish their time at Fu Jen. Given the diminishing student population in Taiwan and the competition for quality faculty, FJUF started the Save & Give Annual Giving Program last year. With this initiative, the departments and schools across campus have come together to encourage the Fu Jen alumni community worldwide to support three ongoing initiatives:
- For students – Global Experience Initiative program 學生層面：短期交換學生計畫拓展世界觀。
- For faculty – to enhance teachers’ teaching and research capabilities and to recruit alumni and foreign educators to share their experience and knowledge 師資層面：組織校友與外籍老師分享經驗充實教師教研能力。
- For campus – a beautification effort leveraging the resources and know-how of Fu Jen’s faculty and students of the Department of Landscape Architecture and the School of Fine Arts to showcase a culture of care and refinement 美化校園：發揮美術與景觀設計系專長, 呈現校園真善美聖之精神與藝術人文氣息。
This is an ongoing effort to make our alma mater even more unique, attractive and competitive. The dollar amount we are asking for is designed for every budget, with the option to donate $1, $2, or $3 a day, or as much as you can give. A donation form is attached (click here to download) for you to support the fund.
I am also attaching a brief questionnaire for your feedback to further enhance our beloved alma mater.
As we approach year-end planning, let us Save & Give today. Thank you!
