The University of Hawaiʻi Foundation will hold its third Giving Tuesday online event on November 29, reminding everyone in the UH community that we are “Stronger Together” on this day of inspired giving to support students, faculty and research within the 10-campus UH System.
The online event is being held in conjunction with the global GivingTuesday effort.
Starting at 12:01 a.m. on November 29, UH Foundation 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.
This year, UH will also hold an in-person Giving Tuesday event, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.,, at the Campus Center on the UH Mānoa campus, with live music from KTUH and its DJs, a visit from the UH Band and cheer team, games and food.
“As we saw with the record amount raised in the last fiscal year, the students, faculty, alumni and donors to UH and its 10 campuses are indeed stronger together,” said Tim Dolan, UH vice president of advancement and CEO of the UH Foundation. “We are so grateful for all the support for our students and programs. Every gift, from $1 to $1 million, makes a difference!”
Matching gifts allow donors’ gifts to make an even greater impact for UH programs. They include, for the second consecutive year, a $25,000 challenge from UH President David Lassner and challenges from UH Mānoa Provost Michael Bruno and the UH community college chancellors.
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.
