Ways to Give

Outright Gifts

An outright gift is one that immediately benefits the University of Hawaiʻi and its students. Cash, real estate, securities, and other assets can be given outright. You may specify where you would like your gift to go, or designate your gift to the "Fund for Excellence" and support the student callers who work to raise private gifts on behalf of the 10 campuses of the UH System.

Additional Giving Information

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

A gift in memory of someone is a powerful way to perpetuate the values and ideals that guided someone’s life - even after they have passed.

Honorary gifts commemorate a significant event or someone who is still alive.

You can make a gift in someone’s memory/honor by supporting any established account. On step 2 of the donation form, be sure to check the box that indicates your gift is in honor/memory of…provide the person’s name you’re honoring/making the gift in memory of and the contact information of anyone who you would like notified of the gift. We will notify the appropriate family members/colleagues about your gift, but will keep the gift amount private.

Please contact Terri Alvaro, director of donor relations at if you have any questions.

A small portion of all gifts to the University of Hawai‘i Foundation is used to defray the cost of administering and raising private funds for the University of Hawai‘i.
