Etsuko’s Story on monthly giving
 HPU Alumni
Etsuko Hashimoto (M.S.I.S '02)
 “It makes me feel good to know that I am giving back to the school that gave so much to me.  Monthly giving is one of the easiest ways to support HPU!   Starting this new payment option was very easy and I definitely feel more connected to HPU.  Please join me – support HPU monthly giving and make a difference year-round.”
Etsuko received her first job as a quality assurance engineer at Ariba, Inc., a software company in Silicon Valley, through a job fair she attended while at HPU.  She credits her ability to work in a multicultural environment to her experiences at HPU. “I will always remember HPU for its diversity, with students from all over the world.”

Gifts of Cash or Check 

Send a check made payable to Hawai'i Pacific University to:

Honolulu, HI 96813

As a convenient method, donate via electronic fund transfer. Funds will be deducted monthly from your checking account.

Gifts of securities

A gift of securities may result in tax benefits for you. Gifts of securities are an important component of giving to HPU, and often result in significant tax benefits to the donor. For example, donations of long-term appreciated securities are generally deductible at market value, regardless of the cost basis.

Corporate matching gift

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contribution made by their employees. If your company has a matching gift program, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift can be doubled or even tripled, and for the purposes of donor recognition and gift society membership you will be personally credited with the matching gift. 

Check here for a listing of known companies who match.

IRA Rollover

In January, 2013, Congress extended an excellent charitable planning opportunity for both 2012 and 2013. The law allows charitably minded individuals a golden opportunity to make gifts directly from their IRAs and exclude the amount of their gifts from gross income. The law presents a wonderful opportunity for individuals to utilize their IRAs creatively to accomplish special philanthropic objectives. Click here to learn more.
