Dr. Henry Y.T. Fok was a prominent Hong Kong industrialist and philanthropist. The gift was made through the Fok Ying Tung Foundation which was established in 1984 to provide for the advancement of education, athletics, medical, social welfare and tourism in China. The Fok Fund is used to promote sports and athletic relationships between China and the United States. In particular, the funds have been used by Sun Yat-sen and Springfield College to facilitate travel of distinguished coaches, physical education faculty and sport researchers at the two institutions and provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate and other visiting scholars to attend workshops, clinics, and classes at Springfield College and Sun Yat-sen. This has been done through the he Fok Physical Education and Sport Exchange Programs agreement at Sun Yat-Sen University(Zhongshan University) in Guangzhou, China, dated March 17, 1996.
