UH raises $66.3 million in donations

The University of Hawaii Foundation raised $66.3 million for the year ended June 30, down slightly from last year’s fundraising totals.

The nonprofit organization raises private money to support the university’s 10 campuses statewide.

The foundation said the majority of donations — 99 percent — are donor-directed.

Nearly $17 million was raised for student aid and approximately $11 million was pegged for faculty and academic support. 

Most of the money — $29.6 million — came from individual donors who are not affiliated with UH by way of being an alumnus, employee, student or parent.

Alumni contributed close to $15 million, while foundations gave $8.6 million and corporations donated $6.6 million.

“The donors we work with are inspired, strategic philanthropists. We are humbled and grateful for their generosity, and know that the investments they have made in students and programs on all 10 UH campuses will make a positive and lasting impact,” foundation president and CEO, Donna Vuchinich, said in a statement.

The foundation last fiscal year raised $66.9 million.

Donna Vuchinich has been and is a great head of the UH Foundation. After several heads of UHF who barely knew what they were doing, she took over and has improved the organization ever since. UH is lucky to have her in charge of raising money for it.

The U.H. Foundation had nothing to do with the Wonder blunder. If they had been involved, they would have quickly deduced it was a scam. They are expert at knowing who just says they are going to give U.H. money, and who is just saying it.
