Vincent Itoga Fund for International and Arts Education


We all know that Vinny was a rare and wonderful friend who loved art and culture and had a real appreciation for the world! As a way to honor Vinny and let his legacy remain with KCC, I have set up a Vincent Itoga Fund for International and Arts Education. The primary use for this fund will be to assist students to be able to study abroad, to have that glorious eye-opening experience that Vinny so cherished. Should there not be students who wish to travel, the fund will secondarily be used to develop the international partnerships necessary to support student study abroads and to support arts education on campus, because Vinny so loved literature, music, dance and the visual arts. I had the chance to let Vinny know about my intent of developing this fund and he smiled in approval.

If you would like to give a donation in Vinny's name, please make check out to: UHF-Kauai CC and include in the Memo Line: Vincent Itoga Fund. You can drop your donation into the Chancellor's Office mailbox or bring it up to the office.

For those who want to make a donation using their credit card, Cammie can do this online with you. For those off-island, she can do the same. Contact Cammie at 808 245-8280 or

If you know of other people who might be interested in supporting this fund to honor Vinny, please feel free to send this along to them as well.
