Together we raised $59,768 from 337 gifts in 24 hours!
Mahalo to everyone who joined us this Giving Tuesday!
This Giving Tuesday, people throughout the University of Hawaiʻi System joined together to raise funds for Maui’s recovery. We stand with Maui.
Since the devastating Aug. 8 wildfires, UH Foundation and the UH community have worked to help the members of our UH ʻohana on Maui who lost everything. From providing immediate financial support to students, faculty and staff and community to supporting a massive effort to prepare thousands of meals each day for those who lost their homes or were helping the initial recovery on the front lines. People across all 10 UH campuses, from students to researchers, have stepped up to help, whether it was volunteering to distribute food or testing water for contaminants.
Maui’s long-term recovery is just getting started. This Giving Tuesday, UH Foundation stands with Maui and is devoting 100% of fundraising efforts to helping the UH ‘ohana strengthen Maui’s recovery.
“We know that it will take years, in some cases, for Maui to recover and UH is playing a vital role in helping to shape the recovery, from environmental research and expertise to training residents for new jobs,” said Tim Dolan, UH vice president of advancement and CEO of the UH Foundation. “It’s the right decision for this Giving Tuesday to put all of our efforts to strengthening Maui’s recovery.”
**100% of your gift will directly support students, faculty, staff, and the Maui community when contributing to a Maui relief fund.
