On Nov. 1, 2023, the UH Foundation launched a $1 billion comprehensive campaign – the largest fundraising effort in Hawai‘i history. We are thrilled to announce that we have now surpassed $660M in funds raised to support the UH projects and people most important to the people of Hawai‘i. For education, enrichment and enlightenment. For economic vitality and cultural preservation. For our children, our elders, our friends and our neighbors.

The campaign for Hawai‘i’s university is for us. For UH. For Hawai‘i. Mahalo for your support!

Walter A. Dods. Jr.“I’ve been a lifetime supporter of my alma mater UH, and I’ve been a volunteer with UH fundraising campaigns before. This campaign is so critical for the future of our university and our state. As the world economy becomes more complex and the challenges we face loom larger, it’s becoming harder and harder to help young people succeed. I believe this campaign will help our next generation in a powerful way.”
