Bank of Hawaii employees and retirees donated $557,577 in the 2022 Live Kokua Giving Campaign, the bank’s biggest employee giving event. The campaign, which ran this year from Oct. 11 to Dec. 12, raises funds for a range of nonprofits, including more than 300 partnered with Aloha United Way. Since its launch in 2010, employees have raised more than $7.5 million for nonprofits across Hawaii and the West Pacific.

Bank of Hawaii Chairman, President and CEO Peter Ho presented a check to Aloha United Way President and CEO John Fink on Tuesday evening. Nearly 600 employees gathered at the bank’s Main Branch in downtown Honolulu, where the donation was announced at the 11th annual Bankoh Tree Lighting Celebration, which included the official Christmas tree lighting, trolley rides to see the Honolulu City Lights, caroling, and local entertainment.

The Bank of Hawaii Live Kokua Giving Campaign is one of many community efforts in which Bank of Hawaii participated this year. In celebration of its 125th anniversary, each of the bank’s more than 2,000 employees was given the opportunity to select a nonprofit to receive a $125 donation. Additionally, the bank planted the equivalent of 125 trees per week throughout 2022 and provided $126,202 in grants to local nonprofits throughout Hawaii and the West Pacific Region that work to protect the environment. In total, Bank of Hawai‘i donated nearly $345,000 to the community in celebration of its 125th anniversary.
