The HEI Charitable Foundation is focused on community programs aimed at promoting educational excellence, economic growth, environmental sustainability, and community development. We take pride in serving and giving back to the community through volunteerism, grants, donations, scholarships, and our employee matching gift program. Since 2010, the HEI Charitable Foundation has contributed more than $10 million to local charities and other nonprofit organizations. Moreover, our employees have donated or fundraised over $4 million, and volunteered more than 80,000 hours.


At HEI, we are proud of the contributions our companies make to our Hawai‘i communities – from stewarding and preserving our environment, to improving the economic well-being of our state, to helping our keiki reach their full potential.

Environmental Sustainability


“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” –Native American Proverb



Featured Organizations 8


Ho-ku-le‘a HEI is a proud patron of Ho-ku-le‘a’s voyage around the world. The Hawaiian name for this voyage, Malama Honua, means “to care for our Earth.” For portions of her journey, Ho-ku-le‘a is being joined by Hikianalia, a state-of-the-art solar and wind powered canoe— merging the wisdom of Hawai‘i’s voyaging ancestors with modern technology—as they travel to more than 25 countries in a mission of exploration, discovery and sustainability for our “island” earth. “When people come together around a common vision, they can accomplish great things. Through their volunteerism and giving spirit, HEI, Hawaiian Electric, and American Savings Bank were one of the first to support the Worldwide Voyage and have been our family throughout our journey. They have teamed up and worked together with many supporters in our community to make Ho-ku-le‘a’s voyage possible and we are very grateful. HEI shares in our hopes, our dreams, and our vision for a better Hawai‘i and its relationship to the world.” Nainoa Thompson
 Master Navigator and President Polynesian Voyaging Society


Kupu HEI is proud to partner with Kupu, which in Hawaiian means “to sprout, grow, germinate, or increase.” Kupu was developed in response to the growing needs of Hawai‘i’s communities to train up the next generation in natural resource management, renewable energy, energy conservation and other green job skill sets. Kupu is predicated on the Hawaiian concept of ma ka hana ka ‘ike, “in working one learns.” “Kupu is grateful for the support of HEI, American Savings Bank, and Hawaiian Electric. Their support contributed to Kupu’s cumulative $14.5 million in impact last year. Participants in Kupu’s programs not only restored the world around them, but they also gained valuable and transferable job skills, credits and educational pathway development, and a heart to care for Hawai‘i. The HEI Companies are helping Kupu to not only create meaningful change today, but we are developing future leaders and stewards of our state for years to come.” John Leong
 Executive Director Kupu

Educational Excellence


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” –Nelson Mandela



Featured Organizations 14


Makana Connection To help our students excel in a 21st century learning environment, HEI stepped forward to donate 1,000 laptops and iPads as part of the Makana Connection initiative. This public-private partnership with the Department of Education will forge a learning process to help equip public school students with digital devices and teachers with training in technology-based learning. “I want to extend my sincere appreciation to the great folks at HEI for having the courage to choose the students at Kea‘au Elementary School to participate in the Makana Project. Today I visited classrooms of children from some of the most poverty stricken homes in our state and watched them learn on some of the greatest technology on the planet, taught by teachers with harmonious passion. Today was one of my proudest moments. Please extend this note to all who shared in this vision so they may stand tall in knowing that it is making a huge difference.” Keone Farias Complex Area Superintendent for Ka‘u, Kea‘au and Pahoa Hawai‘i Department of Education


After-School All-Stars HEI is a proud supporter of After-School All-Stars (ASAS), a non-profit organization which provides comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life. The after-school hours provide a uniquely creative and entrepreneurial time in the field of public education. By teaming up with principal and faculty at each site, ASAS is able to identify each student’s specific needs and tailor programming to supplement the existing efforts at school. “We are so grateful to HEI, American Savings Bank, and the Hawaiian Electric Companies. Thanks to their continued support, we have been able to establish and maintain after-school programs at middle schools throughout the state. Hawai‘i’s youth now have somewhere safe to go, with something productive to do, at a time when they need it most.” Dawn Dunbar
 President and CEO

Economic Growth 18


“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” –Steve Jobs 19


Featured Organizations 20


Energy Excelerator HEI proudly serves as Corporate Foundation Partner to Energy Excelerator, a nonprofit program that funds innovative energy solutions by aspiring entreprenuers—supporting our efforts toward a clean energy future as well as driving economic development in our state. Over the last several years, HEI has donated more than $500,000 to Energy Excelerator. “Hawai‘i is no longer just talking about energy innovation; over the last 3 years Hawaiian Electric Industries has partnered with Energy Excelerator and our entrepreneurs to integrate over 10 innovative technologies with their customers. With a newly designed innovation evaluation strategy, Hawaiian Electric is taking the right steps to evolve into a utility of the future and to scale innovation that can help Hawai‘i reach our 100% renewable energy goal.” Dawn Lippert
 Co-Founder and Director Energy Excelerator

O‘ahu Economic Development Board


HEI is a proud supporter of the O‘ahu Economic Development Board (OEDB), formerly known as Enterprise Honolulu. OEDB is a non-profit, funded primarily by the private sector. The organization’s efforts support a healthy economy on O‘ahu by being a leading agent in the growth, retention and recruitment of businesses that support jobs in Hawai‘i. OEDB is also actively involved in infrastructure, planning and workforce development to build the foundation for a prosperous economy. Since 2010, HEI has donated more than $500,000 to OEDB. “HEI, Hawaiian Electric, and American Savings Bank has not only encouraged the Oahu Economic Development Board with words and best wishes. Carrying forth from 2010, the HEI Charitable Foundation has stood as our largest private contributor. Their support is more than a partnership of New Market Tax Credits, co-steering the Hawai‘i Clean Energy Initiative with other state leaders, or working on economic growth initiatives for our state. We know and recognize that the support of OEDB is an endorsement and plea for us to lead with the best of our heritage, knowledge, and values; to care for each other, our natural resources, our home, and our future; and to find solutions that impact Hawai‘i and contribute to the world. We are so thankful!” Pono Shim President and CEO

Community Development 24


“The greatest good is what we do for one another.” –Mother Teresa 25


Featured Organizations 26


United Way HEI and its employees proudly support the Aloha United Way, Maui United Way, Hawai‘i Island United Way, Kaua‘i United Way, and the Friendly Isle United Fund on Molokai. The United Way organizations build stronger, healthier communities throughout Hawai‘i by partnering with business, labor, government, and non­profit organizations, delivering measurable and sustainable solutions. Since 2010, corporate donations from the HEI Charitable Foundation, employee fundraisers, and individual contributions from employees have exceeded $6 million. “The HEI companies are the single biggest contributor to Aloha United Way, and have been for the last few years. HEI employees put their heart into this every year with the goal of helping individuals and families in our community who are less fortunate. Combined with the HEI Charitable Foundation’s corporate gift of $300,000, they put food on tables, help provide shelter to homeless, and support many other much needed programs and services. This past year, we proudly awarded HEI, Hawaiian Electric and American Savings Bank the Ho‘okela and Lokahi Awards, recognizing their overall achievement in increased employee participation and in monetary donations.” Cindy Adams President and CEO
 Aloha United Way


Partners in Development HEI is a proud supporter of the Partners in Development Foundation (PIDF). PIDF has been dedicated to drawing upon the ancient Hawaiian cultural traditions to meet the current challenges facing today’s Hawaiian population. Using vital traditional concepts such as the ahupua‘a system of land and environmental stewardship, and ho‘ona‘auao, traditional mentorship in education, Partners in Development creates and implements programs to address the needs of at-risk groups within the Hawaiian community, such as preschool children, their caregivers, and economically depressed neighborhoods. “HEI, American Savings Bank, and the Hawaiian Electric Companies have been vital partners in our work to transform the lives of our clients, and have strengthened our ability to serve vulnerable communities. Like the pewa joint that repaired traditional calabashes, they have provided critical resources to mend the lives of the many children and families we serve throughout Hawai‘i.” Jan E. Hanohano Dill President and Chairman of the Board Partners in Development Foundation

Disaster Relief Hurricane Iselle was the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall on Hawai‘i Island. After the storm struck, most of Hawai‘i Electric Light’s 350 employees were hard at work. They were joined by co-workers from Hawaiian Electric and Maui Electric. For over two weeks, together they worked to repair more than 90 miles of electric lines, 238 poles, and 175 transformers that were damaged. The HEI companies also donated over $80,000 to various nonprofits, including the Hawai‘i Red Cross and the Hawai‘i Island United Way.



Aloha For Japan / Aloha For Philippines In March 2011, Japan was struck with the largest earthquake ever to hit the country, triggering massive tsunami waves. In November 2013, the Philippines were hit with the largest typhoon ever to make landfall. Each time, the HEI companies and its employees were there to help. They shared their ko-kua through Aloha For Japan and Aloha For Philippines, donating more than $100,000 to each relief effort. American Savings Bank joined banks across Hawai‘i and served as collection centers for those wishing to donate. HEI employees worked behind the scenes to organize Aloha For Japan and Aloha For Philippines fundraisers and events.



Employee Giving and Volunteerism


At HEI, we are proud to have a culture of giving and one that embraces service to the community. Since 2010, employees of the HEI companies have donated or fundraised more than $4 million and have volunteered more than 80,000 hours in community service projects.


Featured Service Projects and Programs

At Hawaiian Electric, our employees volunteer on many service projects and programs that promote environmental stewardship, foster educational excellence, and support our families and communities. Recent projects include helping restore the He‘eia wetlands; reviving the Waikalua Loko I‘a, an ancient Hawaiian fishpond in Windward O‘ahu; restoring the native wetland bird habitat and areas surrounding Ulupo Heiau, near Kawainui Marsh; helping native plants and endemic species thrive in the Honouliuli Forest Reserve; and working with Ka‘ala Farm to help restore a native forest and loi kalo in Waianae. Over the past 10 years, Hawaiian Electric employees have donated over $1 million to Hawai‘i Community Foundation’s Ka Papa O Kakuhihewa Fund to benefit the Leeward Coast educational organizations. A year-long fundraising effort led by employees of Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric, and Hawai‘i Electric Light, with help from American Savings Bank, is part of HEI’s $125,000 contribution to Hope Lodge, which provides lodging for neighbor island cancer patients and access to much needed medical treatments. 36

At American Savings Bank, bringing real impact to our community isn’t just about giving financially. It’s also the commitment of our time, “sweat equity,” best ideas and leadership to our focus areas: improving education, strengthening communities and promoting economic vitality. ASB’s key community programs include: The Hawai‘i Curling Club Fundraiser is ASB’s signature event that raises money for a local non-profit community partner. This unique annual event affords participants the opportunity to experience the sport of curling alongside Olympic athletes. Bank for Education is the bank’s partnership with specific K-12 schools throughout Hawai‘i to provide support through grant awards, financial literacy education, volunteer projects, internships and scholarships. Seeds of Service, American Savings Bank’s teammate volunteer program, encourages support of community service projects at the bank-wide, branch and department level to benefit schools and other non-profit organizations in neighborhoods on each island. 37

The Ko-kua Community Champion Service Award was established to honor individual employees at Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric, Hawai‘i Electric Light and HEI who have demonstrated exemplary volunteer service in our communities over the past year. The HEI Charitable Foundation is proud to recognize the inaugural Ko-kua Community Champion Service Award recipients.
