Appeal for Donations to China Schools in Earthquake Area
    May 13th, 2008
    Dear Alumni and Friends:
    A massive earthquake, measuring 7.8 on the Richter Scale, rocked Wenchuan County of China's Sichuan Province on May 12, 2008, resulting in a death toll of more than 12,000, many more injuries, and tremendous economic loss. The powerful quake flattened many school buildings in the disaster area, killing and injuring numerous school children and teachers.
    While the Chinese government and the whole nation are mobilized to help the people in the disaster area, many PKU alumni and friends in the USA are asking PKUEF (USA) to give their support, and some of them have already sent in their donations. The Peking University Education Foundation (USA) has initiated a special Fund Raising Program for the middle and primary schools in the disaster area in China. All donations will be transferred to benefit schools within a month.
    1. Donate by check
     Please make checks payable to:
     Peking University Education Foundation (USA)

    2. Donate through your employer’s charitable gift matching program
