HAWAII — Generous donors gave $66.3M in fiscal year 2013 (7/1/2012 – 6/30/2013) to support University of Hawaii students, faculty, research and programs on all ten UH campuses.

“We are very grateful that our active partnership with our Board of Trustees, UH Board of Regents, UH leadership, and faculty and staff on all ten campuses has resulted in another successful year of delivering private investment to enhance opportunities, provide access and create excellence for Hawai‘i,” said Donna Vuchinich, president and CEO, University of Hawai‘i Foundation.

99% of gifts raised are donor-directed.

This means that donors decide how and where their gifts are used.

Donna Vuchinich added, “The donors we work with are inspired, strategic philanthropists. We are humbled and grateful for their generosity, and know that the investments they have made in students and programs on all 10 UH campuses will make a positive and lasting impact.”

Vuchinich continued, “The University of Hawaii touches all of our lives, and the individuals, corporations and foundations that partner with us are collectively helping us build a better Hawai‘i. Mahalo!”

The University of Hawaii Foundation, a nonprofit organization, raises private funds to support the University of Hawai‘i System. The mission of the University of Hawai‘i Foundation is to unite donors’ passions with the University of Hawai‘i’s aspirations by raising philanthropic support and managing private investments to benefit UH, the people of Hawai‘i and our future generations. www.uhfoundation.org
