Booster Clubs

You are here

Booster Clubs play an integral part in providing much needed support for the 21 teams at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.

AKA has been delegated administrative oversight for the Booster Clubs for the University of Hawaii Athletic Department (UHAD). AKA provides “one-stop” customer service for all of the Booster Clubs and their members, thereby increasing internal efficiencies and fundraising performance. AKA also has compliance oversight of all the Booster Clubs ensuring that all NCAA policies are followed and adhered to on an ongoing basis.

In Fiscal Year 2014, the Booster Clubs, working in concert with AKA and the UHAD, raised more than $2.1 million, an increase of 5% over the previous fiscal year. These funds are raised through membership drives, fundraisers, and special events and used to pay for items not covered by the UHAD budget including equipment, travel, and supplemental nutrition. Funds are also used to support other needs such as recruiting and upgraded video equipment. Additional monies are raised through outright donations and annual gifts solicited year-round. As important as financial resources are the roles the Booster Club members play as ambassadors into the community, ardent fans, providers of summer jobs, and much more.

If you’d like to join or support one of the 21 UH Athletic sports, you can do so for as little as $25. Please select the sport you would like to support below or contact Jenn at (808) 956-4513 (email: with any questions or to join.
