Charitable Foundation

Through collaboration, partnerships and neighbors helping neighbors, we are strengthening our communities and serving as a catalyst for a better Hawaii.

The HEI Charitable Foundation focuses specifically on community programs that promote environmental sustainability, community resilience, economic strength, and educational excellence. We take pride in giving back to the community through grants, donations, volunteerism, scholarships, and our employee matching gift program.

The amount of funds to be granted in 2024 from the HEI Charitable Foundation may be affected by the financial impacts of the wildfires on Maui. Nonetheless, the HEI family of companies will strive to support our communities across the State, especially those impacted in Lahaina, and all grant proposals submitted to the Foundation will be considered. We hope for your understanding as we work through these challenging times.
