HONOLULU, HAWAII – For the fourth year in a row, the Financial Services Roundtable has recognized Bank of Hawaii’s commitment to volunteerism, community service and financial literacy with its national Corporate Social Responsibility Leadership Award.

The awards were presented on Tuesday, July 22, during the Community Service Responsibility Honorary Congressional Host Committee reception on Capitol Hill. Financial organizations were judged on the following criteria:

  • Percentage of employee volunteers and the number of volunteer projects in 2013
  • Involvement in financial education initiatives, curriculums, conferences and other projects
  • Total monies raised/donated for community service and financial literacy, including company match programs

Bank of Hawaii is one of 23 awardees nationwide, and is the only Hawaii bank to be included in the awards. The awards are open to all member companies.

Through Bank of Hawaii’s Live Kokua Volunteer Program, employee volunteers, affectionately known as the Bankoh Blue Crew, continually support a variety of community causes. In 2013, employees participated in 79 community events, including helping to restore the He‘eia Fishpond, serving meals at the Institute for Human Services and cleaning invasive algae at Maunalua Bay.
