Elaine Evans

The University of Hawaii Foundation has announced Elaine Evans has joined the UH Foundation as the director of development and alumni engagement at the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM).

In this new position, Evans will engage JABSOM alumni and build philanthropic support among them.

For the past eight years, Evans has served as director of development for the Hawaii Theatre Center where she was responsible for all aspects of community support – special event fundraising, grant writing, corporate and individual memberships, volunteer coordination, cultivation and stewardship of major and planned gift donors, and the organization’s Sustain The Hawaii capital campaign.

Evans came to the Theatre and the non-profit sector from a career in sales and marketing – first as advertising director for Honolulu magazine and then as Hawaii representative for the publishers of several national and regional magazines.

A graduate of Punahou, she completed her B.A. degree in History at Hollins University in Virginia. Evans has been an active community volunteer for many years and has served on the boards of several professional organizations and many non-profit organizations.

Among Evans’ proudest accomplishments are her two grown sons – Carter, a reporter for CNN in New York, and Jamie, a film editor in Los Angeles.
