NO TASK IS TOO BIG, WHEN DONE TOGETHER​

Hawaii Rise Foundation

LET US RISE, HAWAII!

Hawaii Rise Foundation was founded by local business and community leaders seeking to leverage our expertise, resources, and experiences to support our community; by providing creative solutions to address issues and deficiencies faced by everyday community members. Our mission is to create opportunities for vulnerable, or moderate and low-income families, children and elderly by providing educational and cultural services, programs and support.

The island of Hawaii is full of hard-working and dedicated individuals with vast potential often overlooked or unfulfilled due to socio-economic circumstances or crises and lack of accessibility or support to develop that potential. Hawaii Rise Foundation collaborates with individuals and organizations that recognize the promise in the youth, vulnerable, and victimized populations within the community can achieve with cultivation and the provision of support and resources.
