Tim Dolan, University of Hawai'i Vice President of Adancement and UH Foundation CEO
Tim Dolan joined the UH and UH Foundation team in February 2019 after serving as the vice principal of advancement at the University of Sydney, where he led the historic $1 billion (AUD) campaign.
Dolan joined the University of Sydney in 2009 as chief development officer. A successful fundraiser and organizational leader, he mobilized a team of nearly 100 advancement professionals across nine campuses. Together they almost quadrupled annual philanthropic revenue and more than doubled the number of donors to the university, becoming nationally acknowledged leaders in higher education philanthropy.
Prior to the University of Sydney, Dolan spent nearly seven years at UCLA providing fundraising leadership for the Division of Humanities before overseeing development for the College of Letters & Science and directing the university-wide leadership gift program. Earlier in his career, Dolan served as director of development at UH’s John A. Burns School of Medicine and UH Cancer Center and also worked at Chaminade University.
Dolan is the immediate past chair of Australia’s G08 Advancement Group. He earned a bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of California, Los Angeles.
