The mission of the Hawaiian Way Fund (HWF) is to enhance the well-being of Hawai'i through community-based initiatives founded on Hawaiian culture, knowledge and traditions. Your tax-deductible donation can be designated to any of our Hui Manawale'a (not-for-profit) members.
This past fiscal year (10/01/22 - 09/30/23), the Hawaiian Way Fund hosted several donation campaigns totaling over $7 Million dollars. These funds help support various causes such as employee workplace giving, education, houselessness, culture and arts and the list goes on. Our largest donation campaign to-date, Kākoʻo Maui will help to aide the ʻohana impacted by the wildfires in Maui. Over two dozen CNHA Hui Manawale'a members also benefited from donations designated to their respective organizations.
