Caring for Our Community
Join us and make a difference.
Giving back to the community and supporting local charities is something our First Hawaiian ohana strongly believes in. It reflects the energetic commitment of our founder, Charles Reed Bishop, to identify needs in the community and to take bold action. For more than 155 years, we have invested in and helped nurture this special place we call home.
Today, First Hawaiian Bank, our employees, and the First Hawaiian Foundation together represent the largest corporate contributor in Hawaii, Guam and CNMI, donating more than $3 million to over 400 charitable organizations in 2013. In addition, our employees are given time off to provide much-needed support at community events.
Please join us in supporting the causes that mean the most to you. Our community can do great things when we come together. Get involved and help make a difference.

2014 Community Care Employee Program
First Hawaiian Bank’s COMMUNITY CARE is our Employee Volunteer Service program, which launched in 2014, connecting non-profits with employees willing and ready to lend a hand. This bank-wide initiative serves as a team-building activity for First Hawaiian’s 2,200 employees.
