Our History

No world-class institution of higher learning can endure without a vehicle for continued development. Thus, the University of Guam Endowment Foundation was established in April, 1982. Its current ten-member board of directors manages the Foundation’s affairs. Since its inception, the Foundation has engaged thousands of individual and corporate donors in support of scholarships, capital improvement, special projects and visiting professorships.

Board of Directors

The University of Guam is the heart and soul of the UOG Endowment Foundation. We must continue to nurture and provide it with the sustenance it deserves in order to allow it to grow and reach its full potential. The University continues to grow and strive in its quest to achieve its unending goal of higher learning. The foundation will continue to be an exceptional tool in the University’s attainment of its respective goals. The members of the Board of Directors for the foundation and members of the Board of Regents to the university represent a large cross-section of the community to include professionals in medicine, tourism, wholesale, airlines, real estate, engineering, government, and other collateral businesses.
