The HLCF was established to leverage Hawai‘i Life’s network of clients, friends and colleagues to support local causes while providing innovative and flexible ways for the company’s agents to donate to charitable causes.

In addition, the HLCF encourages Hawai‘i Life agents to volunteer their time to nonprofits in their island community.

A volunteer Board of Directors made up of Hawai‘i Life employees and agents across the state direct the fund’s activities. Donations to the HLCF can be made online at
