Centennial Campaign Priorities:
The Centennial Campaign is in the (quiet phase) at this time
going public hopefully sometime this summer when 40% of the 200 million has
been received. Listed below are campaign priorities:
and sustainability - MCC will receive a total
of $200,000 from the Case and Cole foundations.
Center - half of the funding has been received and the legislators
have agreed on the other half.

3.448 million for design
In addition, Scott has talked to
the program directors for specific needs and
will put together a list. Scholarships,
Institutional Advancement and new endowed accounts will be other areas targeted
for new donations.
Clyde was off island but called in to
brief committee members of the accreditation warning. There are some
legal issues in having a community college
system and what we have in realty. Creating a Vice President of Community
Colleges is one solution. Clyde feels reporting directly to
the President can more effectively advance MCC,s higher education agenda.
Horizons Committee Plan and Timeline
suggested part-time residents to help
Maui College. Steve Williams agreed and suggested being
proactive and implementing this into our
also suggested tapping into tourists,
perhaps passing out flyers on the cruise ships. Bill Wong stressed
the importance of keeping our loyal donors involved.
Centennial Campaign committee will ask for our campus priority. Bill
Wong asked if we have our own plan or work under the UH Foundation.
discussed goals for the coming year of a $1.3 million stretch goal and
$580,000 as a yearly goal.
Alumni Association at MCC is being created. Scott is working with
Alvin Tagomori and looking for ideas of what to
offer as incentives.
Charitable Lead Trusts
Lani Starkey from the UH
Foundation gave a presentation of Charitable Lead Trusts and answered questions
from the Horizons committee members. He also discussed 2 levels of naming
“Go School…No Come Like Me”
Leona and Scott discussed the project – what it is and what
has taken place. She shared her story
with the committee of how her education was funded by the GI bill and she went
on to become a successful business
woman. Leona wants to target
corporations that are supported in Hawaii to
fund this project of videos and scholarships, promoting local students to
go to school and get an education. Steve
Holiday suggested not targeting just the food companies but trying the beer
companies too. Bill Wong thought the
politicians should be involved. Dorvin thought
the idea was sellable but somehow we need to
get our foot in the door.
A suggestion was made to
target Harrison Miyahira, a local boy gone big with
his wireless microphone discovery. Also Linda Howe with Alexander &
Baldwin would be a good source of information. Dorvin’s
nephew, Ralph Overton is 2nd in
command at Anheiser Busch for Hawaii. Perhaps
we should approach him about getting the proposal to
the right person.
