Mahalo for Supporting Give Big Hawai‘i

Outcomes & Results







Mahalo for your support during Give Big Hawai‘i! Your contribution goes beyond any one nonprofit’s mission – your participation celebrates the aloha spirit of Hawai‘i.

Aloha United Way

Every individual and family in Hawaiʻi deserves to thrive. However, many struggle to stay above the poverty line. These are our ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households.

In 2022, Aloha United Way (AUW) and the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation (HCF) united to lead the ALICE Initiative, addressing the financial insecurity affecting 44% of local households.

Our Vision: A thriving Hawaiʻi where every individual and family enjoys generational prosperity while calling Hawaiʻi home. The ALICE Initiative enhances financial and social stability for ALICE households. In Year One:

  • 17 local nonprofits joined forces, increasing partnerships, collaborations, and referral services by 233%.
  • 96% of grantees engaged in advocacy to raise wages and benefits, scaling proven programs.
  • 15,741 individuals benefited from job training, matched savings, and financial education.

Help us create a thriving future for Hawaiʻi.
