Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation PO BOX 4148, Honolulu, HI 96812 www.pshf.org
Goals 1. Create Opportunities for Public School Teachers to Develop Innovative and Inspiring Classroom Instruction The Foundation, since its inception more than twenty-ﬁve years ago, is dedicated to bringing forth innovative and inspiring teaching opportunities in Hawaii’s public schools with its Good Idea Grants. This partnership with teachers today is continually expanding and often includes greater parental and community involvement, resulting in an increase in student achievement. 2. Encourage Bold and Creative Thinking The Foundation annually sponsors a Design Thinking Boot Camp taught by Stanford University faculty for public school teachers. Working with many other community members, teachers are provided a forum for thinking boldly and creatively to generate huge upside in their classroom. A classroom for teachers, this program represents their investment in the teaching process and encourages a think outside-the-box mentality. 3. Celebrate the Accomplishments of Hawaii’s Public School Graduates At its annual banquet, the Foundation honors Public School Graduates who have accomplished so much and have drawn inspiration and guidance from their public school education with much thanks to their teachers at all grade levels. Honorees from Business, Entertainment, Government and Education have been recognized for more than twenty years and include community leaders such as Art Ushijima (Baldwin Bears), Emme Tomimbang (Farrington Governors), and Valerie Kaneko (Pearl City Chargers).
Who We Are Founded in 1986, the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation is dedicated to strengthening the quality of public education by creating opportunities for innovative classroom ideas. Managed by a volunteer Board of Trustees, the Foundation supports programs that encourage and challenge those in public education to think boldly and creatively as they try out new ideas and approaches to meet the needs of their diverse learners. Beginning in 1990, the Foundation began offering Good Idea Grants to public school teachers allowing them to purchase equipment and materials that they are not otherwise able to acquire through their school budget. These good ideas have resulted in more than $4 million in grants. Most recently, the Foundation has embarked on funding STEM initiatives including the construction of a science lab, training for math and science public school teachers and sponsoring boot camps to foster collaboration, innovation, and creativity in Hawaii’s public schools. How Your Contributions Make A Difference In 2011, the Foundation funded over $200,000 in Good Idea Grants, affecting over 5,000 K-12 students across the state. These grants allowed teachers to excite, engage and educate students and drive innovation throughout their lessons, curriculum and schools in subjects such as Algebra, Literature, Geography, Music and Chemistry. Parents and community members were also very involved in the delivery of these grants built around, for example, Aquaponics, Renewable Energy, STEM and sometimes old fashioned books. The Foundation also sponsored the Second Annual Design Thinking Boot Camp taught by faculty from Stanford University. Public school teachers who attended this three-day innovative thinking program were able to discover a new way of addressing issues and deriving solutions from a student centric perspective. How To Give Approximately 98% of monies raised go directly to schools and teachers, making a positive impact on teaching and learning in Hawaii’s public school system. The Foundation raises most of these funds through table sponsorships and individual seat purchases at its annual Kulia I Ka Nu’u Awards Banquet which recognizes outstanding public school graduates, teachers, and principals. The next banquet will be held on April 11, 2013. Additionally, the Foundation welcomes gift giving from corporations and their employees through their annual community fundraising efforts.

Who We Are Serving Hawai‘i since 1947, Catholic Charities Hawai’i is dedicated to providing a wide range of social services with dignity, compassion, social justice, and a commitment to excellence. Through programs and advocacy efforts, Catholic Charities Hawai’i serves all people, especially those with the greatest need, regardless of their faith or culture. The organization offers more than 30 programs and services addressing the following areas: child abuse and neglect; homelessness; children’s emotional and behavioral problems; unplanned pregnancy; adult violence and abuse; difﬁculties encountered by immigrants and refugees; difﬁculties adjusting to life’s challenges; and sustaining independent living for seniors and persons with developmental disabilities. How Your Contributions Make A Difference Like many other nonproﬁts, Catholic Charities Hawai’i faced a decrease in funding while experiencing an exponential increase in people needing services. This combination made the agency more reliant on donations from the community.

The organization helped homeless veterans ﬁnd permanent housing, offered counseling services to families in need, provided shelter for young expecting mothers, and gave compassionate help to those who had lost hope.

: Itâ€™s Part of g n i v Gi
Our Island Culture
Thereâ€™s a special way that we show we care in Hawai`i. We give generously without reservation often before weâ€™re even asked, we go out of their way to help each other, and, more than anywhere else, we understand and embrace the meaning of `ohana. Giving an integral part of our island culture. We see it in individuals, professionals, foundations and corporations. Recognizing Generous Individuals and Organizations Thatâ€™s why each year the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Aloha Chapter joins other communities across the nation to celebrate National Philanthropy DayÂŽ. It is an opportunity once a year to acknowledge the generosity of individuals and organizations who help make our island home a better place to live and remind us the aloha spirit is alive and well in Hawaii. Collectively, they invest millions of dollars to support nonprot organizations in our communities, give countless hours of volunteer service, and demonstrate their commitment to professionalism to ensure nonprot organizations can carry on their missions and touch the lives of many throughout our state. National Philanthropy DayÂŽ Awards Luncheon These unsung heroes and heroines would no doubt prefer to shy away from the limelight, but we honor them to be an inspiration to others. National Philanthropy DayÂŽ Awards Luncheon recognizes these organizations and individuals who are making a positive difference in Hawaii. This memorable event represents a small way of giving back to them. An Inspiring Conference The annual Association of Fundraising Professionals Aloha Chapter Conference coincides with National Philanthropy DayÂŽ. The all-day conference entitled, â€œDeveloping the Future: How Great Vision Can Steer You through Uncertain Timesâ€? is packed with informative, engaging t organizations.

These events include award ceremonies, galas, luncheons, seminars and other special events. Outstanding donors, volunteers, corporations, foundations, small businesses, youth in philanthropy and others will be honored on NPD in recognition of their work in improving their communities and their world every day.

Mahalo to Our Generous Sponsors and Exhibitors
We are honored to have our board chair, Andrea McManus, CFRE, join us this year for the 2013 National Philanthropy Day® and Conference. Andrea is the epitome of the values and commitment so often reﬂected in our membership. Just a few months ago, Andrea received the prestigious Queen’s Jubilee Medal for her service to the fundraising profession in Canada. The medal honors Canadians who have made signiﬁcant contributions and achievements for the community.
I want to thank the Aloha Chapter board members for their signiﬁcant contributions to advance philanthropy and the philanthropic professionals in Hawaii our chapter administrator, Susan Oshiro, who is the ‘glue’ that holds everything together. I would like to also to recognize the conference leadership who have worked so hard to put together this advance celebration of philanthropy and conference. If there is a jubilee medal in Hawaii these individuals would certainly be deserving of that recognition. If you have a chance to meet Andrea, our board and conference organizers, please show them your appreciation.
Aloha, Alan Tang Aloha Chapter President, 2011-2012
Donor Aloha and welcome! Thank you for being a part of Hawaii’s 21st National Philanthropy Day® (NPD). It is an honor and privilege to be your chairperson for the state of Hawaii. First celebrated in 1986, NPD was created in the spirit of giving to recognize the signiﬁcant contributions and accomplishments achieved by individuals and corporations on a global basis. Their inspiring efforts and sacriﬁces have challenged us all to reﬂect upon how we can make a difference – every day. Please join me in congratulating this year’s award recipients and volunteers in philanthropy for giving so freely of their time, treasure, and talents. It is through their endeavors and true sense of community that this day is being set aside in gratitude and appreciation. In closing, I ask you to consider being a part of this year’s National Philanthropy Day® celebration by asking yourself this question: “What cause will I commit to supporting today in order to make a difference in my community tomorrow?” Mahalo Nui Loa, John C. Keene National Philanthropy Day Chair
Aloha and welcome to this year’s AFP Annual Conference, “Developing the Future: How Great Vision Can Steer You Through Uncertain Times.” John Sculley, former CEO of Pepsi and Apple Computer, once said “The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious.” Today’s conference was designed to open our eyes to the opportunities through a day ﬁlled with professional development and networking.
Coffee Break Sponsor
We continue to live in uncertain times, especially economically. It’s more important than ever that we educate ourselves and look beyond the obvious to ensure the future success of the organizations for which we work. We have 12 amazing educational sessions being offered today within four tracks: Fundraising Tools & Strategies, Ethics & Best Practices; Partnerships and Emerging Trends; and Communication. We’re also fortunate to have John C. Dean, CEO and Executive Chairman of Central Paciﬁc Bank, as our keynote presenter. We would like to extend a warm mahalo to our title sponsor, The Honolulu Star-Advertiser, as well as the Hawaii Community Foundation for their continued support of the AFP Annual Conference. We couldn’t do it without you! We invite you to take advantage of all of the wonderful programming and networking available and hope you walk away feeling inspired, motivated and equipped to develop for the future. Aloha, Tori Abe National Philanthropy Day Conference Chair

Who We Are Hospice Hawaii has been serving the community since 1979, providing comprehensive, interdisciplinary care to patients with life-limiting illness and their families in the comfort of their own homes. Hospice Hawaii also offers a home-like setting for care at our Kailua Hospice Home, and works with many nursing homes and other facilities. Created by the community and governed by a local board of directors, Hospice Hawaii strives to meet the physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of patients with quality end-oflife care. How Our Contributions Make A Difference In 2011 Hospice Hawaii launched the State’s ﬁrst formal pediatric hospice program in the state: Mana’Olana Keiki (Hope for the Children). This program offers a specialized kind of development and age appropriate care for children facing a life-limiting illness, and support to their families. Hospice Hawaii also awarded over $200K in charity care to indigent patients during their most difﬁcult time of life. In our history of service, Hospice Hawaii has not turned away any patient eligible for hospice care that did not have the ability to pay. Should hospice care not be available to patients who are considered indigent, they may end up turning to an acute or other specialized care facility, where they will probably incur greater patient expense. How To Give Community members can contribute to Hospice Hawaii in two ways. First, they can become a trained volunteer, offering support either in the ofﬁce, or more importantly, in the homes of those we serve. Secondly, they can give ﬁnancially. Hospice Hawaii has many ways to donate money from cash donations, memorials, matching gifts, vehicle donations, bequests, or charitable gift annuities. All forms of support will beneﬁt our community.

Hawai‘i Community Foundation 827 Fort St Mall, Honolulu 96813 808-537-6333
Goals 1. To help people make an impact with their philanthropy. Because of our involvement in many community initiatives and programs, and our extensive network of donors, the Hawai‘i Community Foundation (HCF) helps people and organizations maximize the impact of their giving. At HCF, delivering meaningful impact is more than awarding a grant--it is bringing people together around a common passion and combining their energy, intellect and funds to make a signiﬁcant difference. 2. To improve and support our community through effective grantmaking. The Hawai‘i Community Foundation takes a strategic approach to identifying where, with its clients and partners, it can make the greatest community impact for the people of this state. There are many different kinds of grant programs offered through HCF, ranging from an individual’s grant that is directed to a single nonproﬁt, to a grant that is generated by a partnership of funders for a multi-year, statewide initiative. We not only invest charitable funds from caring donors into the work of reputable nonproﬁts, but also invest in the nonproﬁts themselves through grants designed to strengthen their organizational capacity to better help those they serve. 3. To build and share knowledge. The Hawai‘i Community Foundation believes that the sharing of knowledge multiplies its value and has therefore created a Knowledge Center as a repository of information about philanthropy, civic leadership, and the nonproﬁt sector. Our aim is to increase the level and effectiveness of philanthropy and positively inﬂuence social change.
“Hawai‘i Community Foundation helps people make a difference by inspiring the spirit of giving and by investing in people and solutions to beneﬁt every island community.”
like us > facebook.com/HawaiiCommunityFoundation follow us > @HCFHawaii
Who We Are We believe that philanthropy can be a powerful force for good. It can be a boost to individuals in a time of need, a catalyst for change, a spark for social innovation, and a lever for reform. Our goal is to connect these forces to make our community better and to increase the level and effectiveness of giving in Hawai‘i. As a statewide institution established in 1916 and Hawai‘i’s largest grantmaker, we understand the changing needs of each island community and we have current knowledge about the nonproﬁt organizations addressing those needs.

Success in an Annual Giving program depends on a strong foundation. Do you really understand how your annual giving program ﬁts into your overall development model? Have you measured the right things at both the strategic and tactical level? Do you know what will create maximum donor loyalty for your program? Building donor loyalty from the ﬁrst gift onwards can be daunting unless you have a clear understanding of what your donors want – we’ll show ‘n tell you!
More than ever, nonproﬁt organizations are under greater scrutiny as donors demand to know how their money is being used. Accountability, stewardship, and transparency have become the watchwords in the nonproﬁt community. It’s vitally important for your organization to be fully aware of Hawaii laws governing nonproﬁts boards, their consultants and fundraisers. Ignorance or non-compliance can be perceived as ﬂagrant disregard for the law, jeopardizing donor relationships that you may have taken years to cultivate. Come and learn from the mistakes of others, safeguard your organization’s reputation, and save yourself from a nightmare. This session will cover some recent real life examples of situations gone bad so that all can learn from others mistakes.
Diversiﬁcation is a common strategy among ﬁnancial advisors to spread risk over a mix of different investments. “So you don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” As the economy has changed over the recent years, nonproﬁt organizations have also changed their income mix. In addition to the traditional charitable giving, earned income opportunities through various business strategies are gaining popularity. In this session, you will learn about different earned income possibilities, partnerships with for-proﬁt businesses, rules of co-venturing and a primer on reporting business income tax.
Each nonproﬁt may have a unique mission, but what sets your organization apart most dynamically is the way you express the relevance of your mission to donors through storytelling. People are bombarded with appeals for support, and it is often organizations that know how to tell and sell their stories that gets attention and response. Learn the antidote to donor fatigue and how you can differentiate your organization when prospects must decide which of many organizations to support.

When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. Best practices in fundraising continue to evolve. With our changing economic climate, nonproﬁt organizations are requiring more philanthropic support at a time when philanthropic growth has remained static. Learn how to acquire, retain and grow donor support through initiatives that can be tailored for your development team.
Do you need a refresher on the basics & best practices of cultivating major donors? How are you involving your volunteers in your major gifts fundraising? Are you utilizing Social Media to build your donor base and cultivate your supporters? This session will provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to grow your major gifts effort and we will explore social media tools that are taking relationship management and solicitation beyond Social Media 101. Learn what really works in Hawaii to get a “major gift” to support your nonproﬁt mission and how your favorite social media tool can help. (Session attendees who are current AFP members will receive a certiﬁcate at the end of the session for one free two-hour mentoring consultation in 2013 from a practicing AFP member familiar with major gift development.)
Businesses in Hawaii are acutely aware it’s important to give back to the community. It’s an expectation in Hawaii that businesses demonstrate they have a vested interest in the well-being of the community through their support of local nonproﬁt organizations. Companies attuned to the needs of the community are more likely to enjoy customer loyalty and sustained ﬁnancial growth. Find out how nonproﬁt organizations can be key partners in helping companies accomplish their business objectives.

Whether you are new to fundraising or a seasoned veteran, you will undoubtedly have to work with professional advisors numerous times throughout your career. There is no debating the fact that advisors can greatly impact your ability to close major outright and planned gifts. This session will provide you with a clear understanding of how advisors operate and counsel their clients. This session will also show you speciﬁc, proven strategies that will help you achieve win-win solutions. Lastly, this session will have a short section dealing with how to succeed with family members and children.
The moral minimum has been deﬁned as the rule that one should do no intentional harm. What is the bare minimum required for ethical behavior? One way to frame the application of the moral minimum is to ask “is it legal and, if so, is it ethical”. Is it really clear cut? This session will help us to determine the appropriateness of an activity as well as what is legally required.
Corporate social responsibility programs demonstrate a company’s commitment to good corporate citizenship and support for the communities in which they operate. By aligning your nonproﬁt organization’s needs with those of a corporation, you can create lasting, win-win partnerships that meet your nonproﬁt organization’s needs while also supporting a corporation’s objectives. Find out how to effectively establish partnerships that extend beyond mere transactional “checkbook philanthropy.”

Who We Are Girl Scouts of Hawai`i continues the legacy of Queen Liliâ€˜uokalani and Florence Lowe, who sponsored the ďŹ rst Girl Scout Troops 95 years ago. All girls, regardless of ability, ethnicity, income or circumstance, should have the opportunity to realize their full potential and develop leadership skills that allow them to make a difference in their schools, communities and the world. According to the Girl Scout Research Institute, girls know what it takes to be a good leader, but only one in ďŹ ve girls believes she has the qualities to be a good leader. To ensure that no girl shies away from leadership roles, we are committed to developing girls as leaders who will change the landscape of society and deďŹ ne new ways of accomplishing things. As a global leadership organization, we design fun, educational and ageappropriate programs and activities. Through these opportunities, girls embrace and apply the three keys to leadershipâ€”Discover, Connect, Take Actionâ€”based on the national Girl Scouts Leadership Experience curriculum.
Gail Mukaihata Hannemann Chief Executive OfďŹ cer
How Your Contributions Make A Difference With membership growing, we continue to serve our 5,000 girl and adult members statewide. In 2011, with the help of thousands of volunteers, GSH offered girls more than 55 programs, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)-related activities, camp opportunities and community service events. Every year, Girl Scouts look forward to selling cookies, the largest girl-led business in the country! The Girl Scouts Cookie ProgramÂŽ helps girls develop ďŹ ve skills: decision making, goal setting, money management, people skills and business ethics. Girl use their earned funds to support various enriching experiences, including, travel, community service and leadership projects. Girl Scouts of Hawai`iâ€™s After School Hours Program, created in 2007, serves more than 350 girls, yearly, in low-resource communities, statewide.
Toby Taniguchi Second Vice Chair

Who We Are IHS, The Institute for Human Services, Inc., is a comprehensive social services agency working to prevent and end homelessness in Hawaii. The agency was founded in 1978 by the Reverend Dr. Claude F. DuTeil, an Episcopal priest, to help the people of Honolulu without homes. Originally known as the “Peanut Butter Ministry”, IHS has stayed true to the original mission while greatly expanding services to reach all those in need. IHS operates three service centers in urban Honolulu, two which include 24-hour emergency shelters and one dedicated to housing placement and employment services. Our services are available to families, women, and men who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Last year IHS served over 5,000 individuals, with a listening ear, encouragement, and a wide range of programs to address their diverse needs. Although IHS is known for providing emergency shelter and food to the homeless and those most in need, our array of services also includes children’s enrichment, housing placement, outreach, specialized case management, employment, and health services. Our outreach team, for example, seeks out the most vulnerable on the streets of Honolulu and beyond, assisting them with medical treatment, referrals, emergency services, and housing solutions. How Our Contributions Make A Difference IHS contributes through an array of services which support and assist: Emergency shelter and services accommodates approximately 400 individuals, offering shelter, food, clothing, toiletries, showers, mail/phone access, laundry facilities and storage for IHS guest. Community food programs serve hot meals three times a day, seven days a week. Anyone who is hungry is welcome at the Sumner Service Center for meals. Children’s enrichment services provide a variety of educational and enrichment activities to children staying at IHS. Health services are provided at both Sumner and Kaaahi Service Centers offering screenings, treatments coaching, psychiatric care, urgent care and infant care. Outreach services frequently reach out at parks, streets of Honolulu and beyond. IHS partners with Psychiatrist from the John A. Burns School of Medicine to assist with medical treatment, referrals, emergency services and housing placement. Specialized case management services offer comprehensive case management for families and individuals living both inside and outside of our service centers, as well as veterans and those previously incarcerated. Housing placement services include several housing placement and rental assistance programs designed to prevent and end homelessness. Employment services provide pre-vocational, vocational and employment placement and services, as well as mentoring and urban agriculture programs.

Child & Family Service â€œStrengthening, restoring, refreshing, and educating Hawaiiâ€™s families, from keiki to kupunaâ€? 91-1841 Ft. Weaver Rd. Ewa Beach, HI 96706 (808) 681-3500 WWWCHILDANDFAMILYSERVICEORG s CFS CFS HAWAIIORG like us > facebook.com/ChildandFamilyService Who We Are Child & Family Service (CFS) is a 113-year-old private nonproďŹ t, founded in Hawaiâ€˜i in1899, and is dedicated to the mission of strengthening families and fostering the healthy development of children. We address the most serious social issues of today through 30-plus education and support programs offered at our neighborhood family centers, four domestic violence shelters, alternative school, group and foster homes, and through private counseling services throughout Hawaiâ€˜i. How Your Contributions Make A Difference Funds raised through private contributions in 2011 were used to support the wisest and most pressing needs related to our mission. As an example, last November, our four domestic violence shelters were signiďŹ cantly impacted by unexpected and immediate cuts in State funding. Rather than limiting the availability of the shelters during the holiday season when social services are often most needed, private funding support allowed us to respond to the budget cuts and keep the programs available 24/7. How To Give As we continue to decrease our reliance on government funding, we are increasing our focus on private funding to support the important work we do. We welcome contributions of all sizes, and speciďŹ cally seek legacy gifts to help strengthen our endowment so that we may continue to be relevant for the next century. If you wish to help those who want a better life than the one they were born into, contact the Development OfďŹ ce at (808) 543-8413 or email email@example.com and ask about giving opportunities.
