Thank You To Our Partners
"A strong connection to place. Close-knit communities. Seasoned and emerging community leaders. Social innovations and collaboration among agencies."
Breeani Sumera-LeeExecutive Director
The Hawaii Rise Foundation builds on these strengths, which were cited as particular qualities of the Big Island (Islander Institute, 2018). By partnering with local leaders and businesses, we apply the resources and expertise of community members to offer educational services, programs, and support.
