Pre-authorized Debit Program for Your Donation

Would you like to see more students come to the East-West Center to take advantage of opportunities such as those you had?

Here is a simple, painless way to make that happen.  You can now have your donations to the East-West Center Foundation automatically debited or deducted from your checking or savings accounts each quarter.  This option is only available for U.S. bank accounts.

If you decide to have $90 taken from your bank account (savings or checking) every quarter (that’s $1 a day), you will have given $360 in a year, and in less than three years, you will have given $1,000!  Your name will go on a donor plaque at Burns Hall as a $1,000 Donor.  If you must discontinue the program before you reach $1,000, you can just notify the EWC Foundation office.

Sign up by going to the EWC Foundation website www.eastwestcenter.org/support-the-ewc, contacting the EWC Foundation at 808-944-7193 or by email Foundation@EastWestCenter.org

Sounds easy?  It is!  Some of us have already started on the Quarterly Debit Program.  Please join us today.  Thank you for your participation and generosity.
