Hawaii Community Foundation promoted Diane Chadwick to director of community philanthropy and Chelsey Chow to philanthropy officer of HCF’s Big Island office, which has moved to a new location in Hilo. The nonprofit also brought on Malu Debus as philanthropy officer for its Big Island office. HCF’s new Hilo office is located at 99 Aupuni St., Suite 214. Debus and Chow will work from the Hilo office and Chadwick will remain in HCF’s office in Waimea. “HCF’s board of directors recently approved a new call to action that allows us to focus deeper on critical issues facing Hawaii Island’s community” Micah Kane, CEO and president of HCF, said in a statement. “These changes will empower our team to further serve communities across the island and will allow us to engage in dialogue with community leaders and partners to identify the most compelling issues and needs on Hawaii Island.” HCF said Chadwick will lead the organization’s community outreach and development efforts on the Big Island, while Chow will lead grant making for HCF’s scholarship, advisory committee and field of interest funds. Debus will be responsible for stewardship of donor advised funds and legacy donors. In her role, she will also lead outreach and event coordination efforts. “The community has called on us to take a deeper look at the critical issues that our diverse island faces and to create a framework for the changes that can be of greatest impact,” Chadwick said in a statement. “We look forward to collaborating with our leaders, donors, businesses, and nonprofits on this new direction to support the needs of our beloved island community. Our combined philanthropic experience and community knowledge will be a great benefit to the capacity of investments in our communities.”
