Leave a Legacy Gift

A legacy gift to the Hawaii Community Foundation enables you to provide for the next generation and beyond.

How can you invest your legacy bequest in the future well-being of our community?

  • Support one or more charitable organizations most meaningful to you
  • Direct your gift toward a more general area of interest you are passionate about and allow HCF to oversee its management
  • Entrust HCF to direct the bequest to the most pressing needs facing the community in a manner that continues to honor your wishes

More about leaving a legacy gift to the Hawaii Community Foundation.

Our statewide Legacy Campaign: Nearly 100 local organizations committed to helping you leave your own legacy in Hawaii

When we at the Hawaii Community Foundation thought about what we might do to mark our Centennial year in 2016 and 2017, we realized the most fitting tribute to our past would be to help increase giving to Hawaii's nonprofits long into the future.

Toward that end, we have organized a state-wide effort to enhance awareness of legacy giving for all of Hawaii's nonprofits. 

What is your passion? There is an ocean of opportunities to leave your mark. Select a local cause that reflects your values, then set aside a gift in your will or trust. You will be investing in the wellbeing of whom and what you love.

Resources for Hawai‘i Legacy Giving Campaign


Leading a nonprofit organization is never easy, especially these days. Leaders are faced with a world where doing more with less is an everyday occurrence. We hope the Toolkit and other resources posted here will help nonprofits leverage an overlooked opportunity: planned giving. Planned gifts are helpful in two ways: they can help sustain your organization with guaranteed revenue streams, and provide peace of mind for all concerned. Planned gifts are a win-win: donors create a lasting legacy and so do the organizations they support.
