In August 2003, PUAA and PKUEF brought forth the Annual Donation Program ˇ°Love Our Alma Materˇ±: each alumni donates an amount of money that equals the number of the anniversary of Peking University, i.e. $109 in 2007, and $110 in 2008, and so forth. All donations will come in as part of the Alumni Fund, managed by its Management Committee, and used for prioritized construction programs of the university, alumni activity development, and donations in occasions of urgency.
Each alumni that donates for four consecutive years from 2007-2010, paying either annually or once and for all($432), will receive a set of four commemoration cards. The four cards form a quaternary, with the lakeside scenery in four seasons on the front, epigrams by PKU celebrities of virtue on the back, and the university badge signet right in the middle of the quaternary. They are witnesses to our love to our Alma Mater, as well as valuable collections. For donors whose sum comes to $432, they can have their names inscribed, on the back of the seats of the Peking University Olympic Pingpong Gymnasium, as commemoration.
Up to June 10th 2005, the program has received 2884 individual and 6 collective donations in China, totaling RMB 1,022,541.04, and 108 individual donations in US, totaling $21,786.
