The Hawai‘i Life Charitable Fund (HLCF) was created to answer a need for flexible, responsive and innovative giving opportunities for our agents, brokers, employees and clients. The Hawai‘i Life Charitable Fund is a donor-advised fund at the Hawai‘i Community Foundation and is supported primarily through agent, broker and client donations, though anyone can donate to the HLCF.
Our mission is to work to preserve Hawai‘i’s beauty and culture by supporting its people. We support local charities and causes throughout the state that are aligned with our mission, primarily through grant funding provided through the Hawai‘i Love program.
Anyone can donate to the HLCF, but Hawai‘i Life agents, brokers and clients are able to direct donations to the fund when completing a real estate transaction—at the close of escrow. Agent donations are matched by the company. Our vision is to have 100% participation in our giving program, so that every agent and client chooses to donate to the HLCF each year.
This is your chance to help the Hawai‘i Life Charitable Fund (HLCF) and its volunteer Board of Directors to choose a deserving Hawai‘i nonprofit organization to receive a Hawai‘i Love grant. The People’s Choice Award allows the Hawai‘i public to choose an additional grant recipient from the eligible charities who applied for a grant from the HLCF in 2019, but who were not initially selected.
Each year, Hawai‘i Life agents and brokers collectively choose a giving focus. The HLCF makes grants available through the Hawai‘i Love grant program to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations across the state whose programs align with both our mission and our giving focus for that year. In 2019, our giving focus is Shelter for Families in Need.
Through the fundraising efforts of the HLCF Board of Directors and the generous contributions of Hawai‘i Life agents and clients, the HLCF was able to donate more than $200,000 to Hawai‘i-based 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofits serving the Hawaiian Islands in 2018. Funds raised supported the acute needs of Hawai‘i residents facing extraordinary natural disasters, as well the ongoing needs of several Hawai‘i charities.
Our volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of Hawai‘i Life agents, brokers and employees from across the state. They generously contribute their time and energy to help fundraise and communicate the mission and vision of the HLCF to their community.
