The Donor Relations office is responsible for UHF donors and for building a culture of stewardship throughout the Foundation and University of Hawai‘i community. Our purpose is to fulfill the expectations established by the Donor Bill of Rights.

UHF Donor Relations manages all stewardship activities and represents the interests of major donors to all ten campuses of UH. Donor Relations works with the Foundation’s fundraisers and UH personnel to ensure that donors are thanked in appropriate, distinctive, visible and memorable ways and are informed about how their gifts are being used. Donor Relations helps to strengthen and sustain the Foundation’s reputation for integrity, responsibility, caring, and prudent management of private gifts.
