... across these six sectors, covering a broad mosaic of community issues.

Embarking on our next century Hawai‘i Community Foundation’s yearlong centennial celebration was more than a recognition of our 100 years of community service. We hoped to light a spark that would ignite the power of philanthropy for future generations in Hawai‘i. As we embark on our next century, this community is facing a series of challenges that are more complex than ever before. They exist within a larger system and have to be dealt with as interdependent elements that link and interact. That requires us to shift our focus from solving separate problems to creating social change.

The goal — which is to improve our community as a whole and for the long run — calls on Hawai‘i Community Foundation to become a catalyst for this change. We’re tasked with understanding how the issues are interconnected, reaching out to others in the community, and arriving at collaborative solutions that will stick. Already underway at HCF are initiatives in public education, homelessness, fresh water security, and government transformation. We’ve been effective as a convener because of the knowledge we share and the trust we’ve earned among leaders in nonprofit, community, business, and government sectors, whose collaboration is key to success. We’ve learned that success, when it comes to large-scale social change, can often take years. The issues, the key players, and the resources all need to be “ripe,” and the process needs to be carried out with commitment, collaboration, and focus.

Our promise is to utilize all of the knowledge, the leadership, and the relationships we’ve built over a century of experience to deliver even greater impact for the next century. 4

Helping All Students Succeed Middle School can be tough — peer pressure, academic stress, drugs, and distractions. Sadly, thousands of young students in Hawai‘i are struggling through sixth, seventh, and eighth grades; their poor attendance, behavior, and course work all signal a greater likelihood that they will drop out during high school.

In 2013, the Hawai‘i Community Foundation brought together 15 funders to launch “Connecting for Success” at 10 middle schools. It’s a groundbreaking program that helps schools use real-time data to keep track of middle school students who are at risk of dropping out and develop programs that help those students reconnect to school in a way that can change the trajectory of their lives. Key to the program’s effectiveness is its use of data, starting with the Department of Education’s Hawai‘i Early Warning System.

“An integral part of the initiative was helping teachers develop the ability to track the right data and helping teams use it to target interventions for students who needed them most.” — KAREN LEE, FORMER EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, HAWAI‘I P20 PARTNERSHIPS FOR EDUCATION

The impact thus far for over 2,000 students who are getting extra support from school and community mentors has been transformative. “The changes we’ve seen in our students come not from guessing but from knowing what’s going on with them,” said Amy Kendziorski, Principal of Waimea Middle Public Conversion Charter School. “The kids are better off, and so is the school.” Whether shooting hoops or shooting the breeze together, adolescent boys get the chance to interact with committed, conscientious men like Steve Evans through the Boys to Men Mentoring Hawai‘i program at Waimea Middle School.

“The value of a group of funders that can align behind one goal and commit to a multi-year effort multiplies the impact we can have.” — Mike Mohr, The Omidyar Group

Connecting with male role models like Officer Cacho in informal settings can help boys make good choices and grow into good men. Yoga and meditation are part of the girl’s mentorship program at Waimea Middle School.

Securing Hawai i's Fresh Water Future

Fresh water is Hawai‘i’s single most important natural resource, but as the climate in our islands becomes more volatile and generally drier, our supply is increasingly threatened. Given that Hawai‘i’s economic and environmental survival is based on the availability of fresh water, we knew it was time to act.

The Hawai‘i Community Foundation created the Wai Maoli: Hawai‘i Fresh Water Initiative in 2013 and invited knowledgeable stakeholders from multiple sides of the issue to convene as a blueribbon Fresh Water Council. “We worked for over a year to come up with specific policy changes and strategies, and plan to keep working together to get them implemented,” said council member Dennis Teranishi, President/CEO of Pacific International Center for High Technology Research. The resulting Blueprint for Action centers around the council’s mandate to create 100 million gallons a day of additional, reliable, fresh water by 2030. The 25-member coalition identified three aggressive strategies to achieve that goal — ­­ conserve, recharge, reuse — with clear targets for each. Support for convening the Fresh Water Council and for the pioneering work of its members came from a collaborative of 11 funding partners.

“Our decision to support this initiative stemmed from our foundation’s commitment to securing Hawai‘i’s future and our belief that a shared agenda for action is the way to get there.” — FUNDING PARTNER BETO BEDOLFE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF CALIFORNIA-BASED MARISLA FOUNDATION

Diminishing fresh water supplies in Hawai‘i, along with projections for a drier, hotter future, have consequences for the economic and environmental sustainability of our island home. 18

Governor Ige, legislators, Fresh Water Council members, HCF staff, and youth from Hawai‘i Nature Center’s summer program attended the 2016 fresh water bill signing.

As an island people, the quantity and quality of available fresh water in Hawai‘i directly impacts our health, economy, food production, ecology, native cultural practices, and quality of life.

The Fresh Water Council documented threats to Hawai‘i’s fresh water supply; set a specific goal to achieve water security; identified targets to meet by 2030; and continues to advocate for policy changes.

Convening stakeholders who were often adversaries to come up with collective recommendations established a foundation for moving forward and a model for resolving contentious issues.

Having unanimously agreed on goals for achieving water security, members of the Fresh Water Council are working together to accomplish the objectives of the Blueprint for Action to bring about necessary policy changes and stimulate private and public investments.

Housing Homeless Families Faster As the rate of homelessness rises in Hawai‘i, many of those without a permanent place to live are families with children (42%). The Hawai‘i Community Foundation recognized the need to take immediate action and spearheaded an innovative, three-year program in 2014 called HousingASAP.

Hawai‘i Community Foundation knew that if shelter providers worked together, instead of independently, results for homeless people would be better, and the entire community would benefit. To that end, we brought together a group of 14 funders (including HCF) who pooled their resources toward a common goal: place more families into permanent housing faster and help them stay there.

“When funders and providers are brought together to tackle pressing needs, people are helped more rapidly and better solutions are developed.” — FUNDING PARTNER ANN BOUSLOG, FUND ADVISOR, COMMUNITY HOUSING FUND

The eight organizations that make up the HousingASAP network provide most of the shelter beds available for families in Hawai‘i, so increasing their capacity — to incorporate Housing First practices, to use data for improving and evaluating effectiveness, and to implement policy and systems change — is a wise investment. One of the network’s most important accomplishments is a coordinated entry system that allows a homeless family to be referred to the most appropriate service provider in order to quickly get them placed into permanent housing. When families have homes, their futures become brighter. A safe, secure, and sanitary place to live helps keep families stable and connected with each other, and can even improve the educational outcomes for children.

“By moving in the same direction and using data to guide us, members of the HousingASAP network are improving the long-term outlook for vulnerable families in Hawai‘i.” — Maude Cumming, Executive Director, Family Life Center

Creating a Healthier Hawai i When the state received a portion of the class action master settlement with the tobacco industry 16 years ago, Hawai‘i Community Foundation formed a partnership to reduce tobacco-related diseases and deaths in Hawai‘i and start to improve people’s health.

Under a contract with the Hawai‘i State Department of Health (DOH), HCF was tasked with managing the Hawai‘i Tobacco Prevention and Control Trust Fund.

“The Trust Fund was used to develop a comprehensive program that includes policies, prevention, and cessation interventions. And results are yielding improvements in public health and saving lives.” — LOLA IRVIN, ADMINISTRATOR, CHRONIC DISEASE PREVENTION AND HEALTH PROMOTION DIVISION, DOH

The multifaceted program that’s come out of this public/private partnership includes the Hawai‘i Tobacco Quitline, smoking cessation and youth prevention programs, and advocacy that helped to pass legislation to create smoke-free workplaces, increase taxes on tobacco products, and address secondhand smoke. While smoking rates have decreased and tobacco-related deaths are down in Hawai‘i, smoking still claims 1,200 lives each year and costs the state $526 million annually in medical expenses. Alarmingly, the use of e-cigarettes by students is up over 500% since 2011. Up against a tobacco industry that spends relentlessly to increase the use of nicotine, our steadfast work on behalf of the Trust Fund has helped to make Hawai‘i’s smoking rate (14.1%) one of the lowest in the nation. Malia Lehua Lema, Health Educator at the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, meets with program participants at the Pai‘olu Kai‘aulu transitional shelter. With the “No Tobacco” dollars they earn, individuals can “shop” for toiletries and other basics. 30

“Through support from HCF’s Tobacco Cessation grant, the West Hawai‘i Community Center has been able to decrease barriers and increase access to care in order to reach hundreds of people, regardless of their ability to pay.” — Victoria K. Hanes, Psy.D, Behavioral Health Director, West Hawai‘i Community Health Center

Culturally relevant materials created by ‘Imi Hale Native Hawaiian Cancer Network complement the program and resonate with program participants like James Hamili Jr. and Dina Vinson of Wai‘anae.

Trust Fund resources are carefully invested and monitored to prevent people from starting to use tobacco products and help others to quit.

By virtue of the collective efforts of HCF, the DOH, the Legislature, and community partners, there is a coordinated statewide approach to tobacco control.

Measurable results — including legislation for smoke-free workplaces, implementation of the Quitline, and prohibition of the sale of cigarettes and e-cigarettes to youth under 21 — are reducing public health costs and saving lives.

centennial donors Thank you to these donors who have partnered with HCF to mark our centennial year.
