ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION
In 2001, The Hong Kong Association of Northern California (HKANC) initiated a Scholarship fund designed to provide scholarships to undergraduate university students of high academic distinction. This is based on the belief that investing in today’s youth will help to ensure that students strive to achieve their goals and to develop into leaders of tomorrow. As of to date, more than $370,000 in scholarship funds have been donated to the University of California, Berkeley, and San Francisco State University. The HKANC believes scholarships are a core investment for the future, providing the opportunity of a lifetime to talented young scholars, many of whom will make vital contributions to our society later in life.
The HKANC Scholarship Foundation established in 2017 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (TIN: 82-1256009). Your tax-deductible contribution qualifies as a charitable donation under Federal and California state tax laws.
