Caring for Our Community
Supporting Communities with Our 'Yes' Spirit
At First Hawaiian Bank, we all share a 'Yes Spirit' that has been a part of our bank's culture from the very beginning. Our employees recognize that if there's something you want to do -- take on a dream, accomplish your goals -- it all starts with 'Yes'. Saying 'Yes' opens up possibilities and is a reflection of this 'can-do' spirit that motivates us to be the one to make a difference in helping to build stronger, healthier communities for us all. At First Hawaiian, we strongly believe in giving back to the community and supporting local charities, it's a legacy of giving that we are proud to continue today. It reflects the commitment to identify needs in the community and to take bold action. For more than 156 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 one of the largest corporate contributors in Hawaii, Guam and CNMI, annually donating more than $3 million to over 400 charitable organizations. 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.
2015 Community Care Employee Program
First Hawaiian Bank's Community Care Employee Volunteer Program connects non-profit organizations with employees willing and ready to lend a helping hand in the community. This bank-wide initiative serves as a team-building activity for the bank's 2,000 employees in Hawaii, Guam and Saipan.
2015 Kokua Mai Employee Giving Campaign
Employees and retirees generously gave from the heart, donating over $712,000 to benefit charities in Hawaii, Guam and Saipan. For the third year in row, 98 percent of employees participated in this annual bank-wide giving campaign. Since the Kokua Mai program began in 2007, more than $5.4 million has been raised for charities. All program costs are covered by the bank so that 100 percent of every employee contribution goes to their charity of choice.
