Gifts by U.S. Mail

Cash gifts are an excellent way of supporting the University of Hawaiʻi. Cash gifts include checks, drafts, and money orders.

If your gift is mailed to the Foundation before the end of the calendar year and you itemize when doing your taxes, you're eligible for an income tax deduction for that year. As the donor, gifts of cash are deductible for up to 50% of your adjusted gross income. Cash contributions that exceed the deduction limit may be carried over and deducted in the following five tax years.

For more information, contact Dale Hagadone at 808-956-7357 or
