Internal Giving Campaign 2020



Aloha JABSOM Faculty and Staff,

At JABSOM, philanthropy begins in the center of the circle: family first. Here we believe that if we are asking others to give, our ʻohana should be the first to give.

Each fall for the past eleven years, JABSOM has conducted an internal giving campaign – Starting From the Inside Out – that asks faculty and staff to provide financial support for the school. To date, you have donated over $5.2 million dollars to support the projects and programs at JABSOM that matter most to you. Mahalo!

There is a difference between being paid for the work we do – our jobs – and our personal commitment. Employee donations effectively say, “We believe in this school enough to actually invest in it ourselves, to give of our personal resources.”

Year after year, a majority of us who work at JABSOM demonstrate that those who know the school best believe in its mission and support it with our personal philanthropy.

As always, we encourage you to support an area of the school that is meaningful to you. We will continue to offer matching funds to encourage participation and increase the value of your gift. The campaign runs from October 16 – November 16.

We know that this is a difficult year for giving with personal finances being impacted by COVID-19. We have always stressed participation, but larger donations have been getting a higher percentage of the matching funds. This year all awards will be matched dollar-for-dollar on a rising scale up to $100. This will maximize the value of small donations and truly reward participation. This is first come first served, so get your donation in early so it has a higher chance to be matched to the maximum. If matching funds are still available after all donations of $100 or less are matched, then matching will be proportional for the amount donated as in past years.

Please consider making your gift today.

With gratitude and aloha,
