The Pavel’s $10M Gift Invests in Premier UH Expertise in Ocean, Earth and Sky

The Pavel’s $10M Gift Invests in Premier UH Expertise in Ocean, Earth and Sky

When Victor and Margaret (Peggy) Pavel designated the University of Hawai‘i Foundation as the primary beneficiary of their estate, they wanted to keep their identity private and preferred no personal publicity for what would turn out to be the largest estate gift to UH in UH history. Fortunately, they gave us permission to posthumously acknowledge them, and let Hawai‘i know who provided the transformative $10 million estate gift that will support UH programs and students statewide.  In addition to who, the Pavel’s more importantly wanted to share with Hawai‘i “why.”  The Pavel’s believed deeply in the value of science education and nature preservation. They felt that UH, with its internationally recognized expertise in these areas, was an excellent investment.
