20th Annual College of Engineering Banquet (CANCELED)
April 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
College of Engineering Virtual Fundraiser
In place of attending our banquet, we humbly ask that you consider continuing your support the students of the College of Engineering financially during this time through our Virtual Fundraiser.
This annual banquet event is the largest single annual fundraiser for our College, providing a significant amount of funding for student projects and other student activities, and in some cases, the only amount of funding some of these projects would receive. We know we will all be facing some difficult times as our economy begins to confront the impacts of the COVID-19 spread, and none more so than our students and their educational experience. As we have been advised to expect massive cuts to our general fund and tuition revenues in the coming fiscal year, now more than ever, our student projects will need financial support from sources outside of the University. The importance of our industry’s support for this event could not be more overstated.
Our goal over the next month is to raise $100,000 by April 22, 2020, the original date of our event. Please also note that because this will become an online fundraiser not attached to any event, your financial gift in supporting the College of Engineering student projects will now become a 100% tax-deductible donation.

As of 4/17/20: We are almost 90% there!
MAHALO to our community supporters who have donated a total of $89,600!
