Matthew Cowley Society
Refining Genuine Gold
To recognize the generosity of donors who provide deferred gifts, Brigham Young University-Hawaii created the Matthew Cowley Society. Elder Matthew Cowley was a great champion for the people of the Pacific. Throughout his years as a missionary and mission president in New Zealand, and as an apostle assigned to preside over the missions of the Pacific, he worked to provide greater opportunities for gospel growth and education of young people.
Concerning Brigham Young University-Hawaii, President David O. McKay said that the school would produce peacemakers and leaders of integrity for whom the world is in need. He called the students “genuine gold.” By providing a deferred gift today, you can ensure the success of future students attending Brigham Young University-Hawaii for generations to come.
