Philanthropy can bring significant meaning to families that give. The process of making charitable giving decisions together is a chance to share values and pass on a legacy of caring. HCF can help your family start the conversation about giving and make use of valuable tools that are available to achieve your philanthropic goals.
Funding partnerships at HCF exist in a variety of sectors. By combining resources, these collaborations offer the potential for achieving significant change that can benefit the community over the long run.
More and more companies in Hawaii are coming to recognize the importance of business giving—not only as a way of giving back, but also as a vehicle for helping a company achieve its own goals.
You can leave a legacy gift through a bequest in your will or trust that supports a specific charity or any cause that's important to you. Those who have done so know that the assets they leave to the community will have an enduring impact on the causes they care about.
