The University of Hawaiʻi Foundation will hold its second Giving Tuesday online event on Nov. 30 that will allow everyone in the University of Hawaiʻi community to “Come Together” for one day of inspired giving to support students, faculty and research within the 10-campus UH System.
The online event on Tuesday, Nov. 30, is being held in conjunction with the global GivingTuesday effort.
Starting at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 30, UHF will open a special online platform at uhfoundation.org/GivingTuesday where donors may give to any fund during the 24-hour Giving Tuesday period. Donors may also call (808) 376-7800 on Oʻahu, or (833) 846-4262 to make a gift by phone.
“Our first Giving Tuesday drew 436 donors and we’ve made it even easier to give this year,” said Tim Dolan, University of Hawai‘i vice president of Advancement and UH Foundation CEO. “For our second Giving Tuesday, we chose the Come Together theme to accentuate the relationships between the foundation, donors and all 10 UH campuses, that we are one ʻohana.
“We are grateful for each and every gift and no amount is too little to show your support for UH.”
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as an American day of philanthropy and giving in response to the consumerism of Black Friday and the holidays. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
