On Nov. 1, we publicly launched For UH • For Hawaiʻi, our comprehensive campaign with a goal to raise $1 billion for all 10 University of Hawaiʻi campuses. There is incredible momentum happening across UH, in our labs and classrooms, in our student enrollment and graduation rates, and philanthropy serves to accelerate and elevate our progress.
For UH • For Hawaiʻi is not only the most ambitious fundraising campaign in UH history. It’s the most ambitious comprehensive fundraising campaign in Hawaiʻi’s history. We started the quiet phase of the campaign in FY19 and with your support, we have raised more than $570 million and are 57% to our goal. We invite you to visit our For UH • For Hawaiʻi website and to watch our campaign video, produced by our UHF staff with contributions from faculty and students from across the islands.
Your loyal support is essential for UH and for the thousands of students whose lives are uplifted and enriched by a college education and we are so grateful.
