ABOUT THE UH FOUNDATION
The University of Hawai‘i Foundation, a nonprofit organization, raises private funds to support the University of Hawai‘i System. Its mission is to transform and create a better future for Hawai‘i through alumni and community philanthropic support for public higher education, to be a trusted manager of private investments, and to build and sustain the university’s relationships with donors, alumni, the community, and institutional and university partners.
The UH Foundation was established in 1955 to encourage private support for the University of Hawai‘i. Today, it is the central fundraising organization for the UH System providing a host of fundraising services to all 10 UH campuses along with managing more than 3,400 gift accounts for the benefit of the university.
The UH Foundation is a private, institutionally related corporation designated as a 501(c) (3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service. It is a legally separate entity from the University of Hawai‘i, the UH Alumni Association, and all other UH affiliates. However, the Foundation does work closely with these organizations as well as with others in the community exclusively for the benefit of the university.
