Founded in 2001, the Fu Jen University Foundation (FJUF) is a U.S. nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization (Tax ID #94-3398863) based in Southern California. FJUF is governed by a volunteer board of directors. Originally composed of fourteen members, the board of directors currently has twenty-two members, with approximately one-third representing the university in Taiwan, and two-thirds representing alumni primarily located in the United States.
Since its inception, FJUF’s objective has remained consistent: to enhance the effectiveness of teaching and research at Fu Jen Catholic University. Through the support of alumni and friends of Fu Jen, and the dedicated backing of board members, FJUF has realized its goal of providing steady financial support to the university in a number of vital areas, including the establishment of various student scholarships and professorships, and the construction of several capital projects.
Funds raised by FJUF for the University have steadily increased over the years. By 2005 the foundation had raised approximately $1.5 million. To date, FJUF has collected just over $23 million. The Directors of FJUF and the Board of Trustees, and the President of Fu Jen University, are deeply grateful to all those who have contributed to the Fu Jen University Foundation in support of Fu Jen Catholic University. The dedication, generosity, and support of the Fu Jen community ensure that students will continue to receive the finest education, both now and in the years to come.
