誠邀成為「英華教育基金」會員

敬啟者:

母校於 2003 年復辦小學,與之結龍,為就讀學生提供「一條龍」中、小學教育。並且於 2008 年開始轉以「直接資助」模式辦學,以便多一些自主空間,因材施教,照顧學生各方面的教育需要,為學生提供更理想的教育環境。

母校轉為「直資」學校後,財政需自負盈虧,亦須儲備資金作多方發展, 提升教學質素,追求卓越。有見及此,校友會成立「英華教育基金」,結合包括校友、學校、校董會及家長教師會等多方面的資源力量,集腋成裘為母校籌募經費,為中、小學未來發展多方面的需要,在教學資源上及校舍設施、配備上作出準備。

「英華教育基金」以「無股本的擔保有限公司」形式於公司註冊處成立。並由不同持份者,包括辦學團體、校長、教職員、家長及校友的代表共同監管運作。基金亦已被確認為慈善團體,凡捐款者皆獲得稅務豁免。

基金已獲得超過 120 位創辦成員捐款,透過歷年的募捐及各項籌款活動, 迄今已籌得逾 7 百萬元捐款作為儲備,亦正積極計劃對中、小學的發展作出適當的安排。

為進一步鞏固「英華教育基金」的財政實力,並為眾持份者提供多一個支援母校的渠道, 現時基金重新招收會員,凡捐出港幣 3 萬元者,可申請成為「英華教育基金」會員。有興趣申請成為基金會員的校友,請填妥夾附表格,並於 9 月 30 日前交回英華書院校務處徐小姐(tyf@yingwa.edu.hk)。集齊資料後,有關申請將呈交予「英華教育基金」執行委員會核實。

如有任何垂詢,可致電英華書院 2336 8838 與徐小姐聯絡。
