We are proud of the contributions our companies continue to make to our Hawaii communities—from preserving our environment, to improving the economic well-being of our state, to working with individuals and families experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19. Together, we share a vision of a stronger, thriving Hawaii.

Since 2010, our employees have donated or fundraised over $5 million, and volunteered more than 200,000 hours. And we currently serve on more than 200 nonprofit boards and commissions. The HEI Charitable Foundation, which has donated more than $20 million to our nonprofits since 2010, has established the Kokua Community Champion Service Award to honor individual employees who have demonstrated exemplary volunteer service in our communities.
