Philanthropy is a vital source of support to advance the mission of the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) in Hawaiʻi and the Pacific.

Our development team is affiliated with The UH Foundation (UHF), a private, non-profit, University of Hawaiʻi related corporation that serves as the central fundraising organization for the entire UH System, including JABSOM. UHF partners closely with the University to raise funds, distribute those funds to UH programs according to donors’ designations, manage endowments, and connect alumni and friends to the University.
