Named one of the most charitable companies in the state, HEI Charitable Foundation is focused on community programs aimed at promoting environmental sustainability, educational excellence, economic growth, and community development. We take pride in serving and giving back to the community through volunteerism, grants, donations, scholarships, and our employee matching gift program.
Since 2010, the HEI Charitable Foundation has contributed more than $10 million to local charities and other nonprofit organizations. Moreover, our employees have donated or fundraised over $4 million, and volunteered more than 80,000 hours.
At HEI, we are proud of the contributions our companies make to our Hawaii communities – from stewarding and preserving our environment, to improving the economic well-being of our state, to helping our keiki (children) reach their full potential. Together, we are all working towards our vision of a better Hawaii.
Connie Lau, HEI's president and CEO, and chairman of the HEI Charitable Foundation, proudly shares her views on our employees' spirit of giving and the many ways they serve and contribute to our community.
The HEI Charitable Foundation is proud to partner with Aloha United Way to donate 10 Smart car electric vehicles to local charities – to strengthen our community and to help protect the one planet that we have.
