非裔美富商慷慨捐3.1億 幫400位畢業生還貸款
21 May 2019



美國一位慈善家周日在喬治亞州亞特蘭大一間大學的畢業禮上宣布,會為該校今屆所有畢業生清還學生貸款,即時獲得台下畢業生們起立鼓掌。涉及的金額估計高達4000萬美元(約3.1億港元)。

這位靠科技投資致富的黑人億萬富豪史密斯(Robert F Smith),在只招收黑人男生的莫爾豪斯學院(Morehouse College)畢業禮致辭時,作出這個驚人宣布。他指著台下戴學士帽、身穿黑色畢業服的學生說:「2019年班畢業生,算我的!我的家族將撥款替你們付清學貸。」

台下近400名將會受惠的畢業生聽到消息時個個瞠目結舌,肯定自己沒有聽錯之後才起立拍掌歡呼。史密斯接著指出,知道這一切都會是值得的,他們會把善舉繼續傳下去,幫助改善更多非裔美國人的生活。

校方發言人指出,這是這間傳統黑人大學收到有史以來最大的禮物。該校知名校友包括美國民權鬥士馬丁.路德.金、導演史派克李(Spike Lee)和影星森姆積遜(Samuel L. Jackson)。

56歲的史密斯於2000年創立私募公司Vista Equity Partners,身家估計達44億美元(約344.5億港元),2015年被財經雜誌《福布斯》評選為最富有的非裔美國人,超越同為億萬富翁的美國女名嘴奧花雲費(Oprah Winfrey)。
