Ms. Brooke Carroll

Associate VP & Chief Development Officer, Hawai’i Pacific University  

L-R: Brooke Carroll, HPU President John Gotanda, Dr. Allen Zecha, HPU VP of University Relations Sam Moku  

It was a great day for Brooke Carroll and the students and faculty of Hawai’i Pacific University. HPU recently received a $1-million gift from global businessman and HPU Trustee Emeritus, Dr. Allen Zecha. The money will be used to establish a school of engineering and support other student programs and initiatives.  Read more…   

Aloha Chapter member Brooke Carroll is currently a member of the Professional Advancement committee and last year served on the Membership committee.  We interviewed Brooke to get to know her a little better:

How long have you been at your current organization?

I joined HPU in July of 2017.  The University brought me on board to lead their upcoming campaign and expand operations in the development office.  In the next few months we will be hiring for several positions, which I hope to fill with AFP members.

Is there anything you’d like to share about your recent gift from Dr. Zecha?

Dr. Zecha is an inspiring philanthropist - in fact, he received the Outstanding Philanthropist Award from AFP in 2014.  It has been a privilege to get to know him and his wife and to help facilitate their commitment to education in Hawaii.  Their dedication to supporting and making an impact in the lives of our students inspires our whole team.  This is the largest unrestricted gift that HPU has ever received. It’s a testament to his long-standing relationship with the University and his faith in our ability to steward his gift.  I was honored to be a part of it.    

How long have you been an AFP member?   

I joined AFP in July 2017.

What encouraged you to join AFP?

I grew up in Hawaii, and so I understand the importance of being part of the community.  AFP has a great track record of fostering relationships between members and it seemed like a great way to meet my fellow fundraising professionals.  

Are you involved or a member of other organizations?

I am a member of CASE and ADRP.  Both of those organizations provide valuable educational opportunities, but AFP’s regional chapter structure helps us meet the specific needs of our own communities and focus on successful strategies for each area.   

What is your favorite pastime?

Either golf or scuba diving. Lucky for me, both are readily accessible in Hawaii.  

If asked for a good place to eat, where would you recommend?

I live on the windward side of the island, which has a lot of great restaurants to choose from.  I probably spend the most time at either Haleiwa Joe’s or Buzz’s Steakhouse. 

If you were given a free vacation, where would you go?

Probably somewhere in Indonesia.  I am heading to Bali and East Java in May for my second visit.  One of my best vacation memories was having baby goats eat bananas out of my hands.
