In Memoriam: Mr. Zachary C.S. Hsu

05 April 2021

The Foundation records with deepest sorrow the passing of Mr. Zachary C.S. Hsu, Honorary President of the HKBU Foundation, on 5 April 2021. He was 94 years old. 

The deep and lasting bond between Mr. Hsu and HKBU dates back to 1973 when he first donated to the College Building Fund in support of the advancement of the then Hong Kong Baptist College. In 1976, Mr. Hsu and his wife Mrs. Peggy Hsu established the “Mr. & Mrs. Sydney S.O. Au Memorial Scholarship", which has sponsored over 100 needy students in the past 45 years to engage in overseas exchange opportunities, thereby broadening their horizons. 

Mr. Hsu is a reputable entrepreneur, a devout Christian and an enthusiast in nurturing talents. Mr. Hsu and his family are long-standing supporters of HKBU. Apart from the “Mr. & Mrs. Sydney S.O. Au Memorial Scholarship”, they made generous donations in support of the various endeavours of the University including the Dr. and Mrs. Hung Hin Shiu Chinese Medicine Research and Development Fund.

The Foundation extends its deepest condolences to the Hsu family at this time of bereavement. Mr. Hsu will always be remembered for his ardent support and distinguished contributions to the University.
