The Hawai‘i Community Foundation held its 100th centennial celebration at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on Saturday, April 16, to celebrate its history and the impact individuals and organizations have made on Maui County.

The celebration brought together more than 200 invited guests—business leaders and community members who have demonstrated their commitment to giving or have directly benefited from the generosity of others.

With 100 years of community service, the HCF is the leading philanthropic institution in the state.

HCF is a steward of more than 700 funds, including more than 200 scholarship funds, created by donors who desire to transform lives and improve communities.

In 2015, HCF distributed more than $46 million in grants and contracts statewide, including $4.5 million in scholarships.

As HCF embarks on its next 100 years, the organization is focused on ensuring that giving continues for the next 100 years through its Legacy of Giving campaign.

If people left just 10 percent to charitable purposes in their will or trust, it would equal to upwards of $6 billion of incremental funding to nonprofits.

There are more than 53 funds to benefit Maui, Moloka‘i and Lāna‘i, including the Mary Josephine Bloder Scholarship Fund and the Lanai Community Benefit Fund.
