As we prepare to celebrate the holiday season and close out 2022, we wanted to take a moment to share with you some stories of the impact you are having on the University of Hawai‘i and its people.
This has been an amazing year for UH and for the foundation that serves as its philanthropic partner. We’ve kicked off the current fiscal year with another strong showing of private support as evidenced by our recent Giving Tuesday event which doubled last year’s effort with more donors at all levels. For this we are truly grateful.
As we all navigate the year ahead, we are inspired by the unwavering support you show for UH and the thousands of students whose lives you are changing. On behalf of them and their families, we offer our heartfelt thanks.
We wish you a wonderful holiday season filled with family and friends, and a happy and healthy 2023.
