The JABSOM 2012 Internal Giving Campaign has raised than $145,000 in pledged gifts as of October 3! There’s only one more day to go!
Dr. Marla Berry and Dr. Kamal Masaki, co-chairs of this year’s campaign, joined Dean Jerris Hedges in Kūlia Grill on September 14 to scoop ice cream for faculty, staff, students and visitors to enjoy at our traditional “Free Sundae Kick-off” event. During the Internal Giving Campaign, now through October 5, employees of the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) are encouraged to make gifts or pledges to support the many ways JABSOM improves health care in Hawai`i.
Neighbor Island Training Support
The spotlight on this year’s campaign is shining on the Rural Ambulatory Clinical Education (RACE) Endowment, started in 2006, by JABSOM faculty member (and one of the original developers of “6L”) Dr. Jon Martell. Gifts to this fund will support rural and Neighbor Island clinical training opportunities for 3rd year medical students. You may also give to the JABSOM fund or funds of your choice.
The amount of your gift is not as important as your participation.
The staff & faculty involvement signals to our broader community that those closest to the School believe JABSOM is worthy of financial support. Last year’s gifts benefitted 59 different University of Hawai`i Foundation accounts at JABSOM, illustrating the broad range of quality programs that employees feel warrant their contributions. The five funds with the largest number of donors by the end of the campaign on October 5 will share the $5,000 UH Leadership Challenge offered by UH President M.R.C. Greenwood, UH Mānoa Chancellor Thomas Apple, former UH Mānoa Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw and Dean Hedges.
If you are faculty member or staff employee of JABSOM–please consider participating in the Internal Giving Campaign now through October 5. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com!
