Charitable Foundation Services

For more than 100 years, Bank of Hawaii has been helping individuals and corporations devise the best, most effective ways to direct and manage their giving through private charitable trusts and foundations. The majority of the charitable trusts for which Bank of Hawaii serves as trustee designate the charities that are to receive funds generated by trust assets. All of the charitable trusts and foundations included here accept grant applications from Hawaii (and in some instances, Pacific Island) charities.
