It begins with you and your donation.
- Trained HIUW volunteers meet with partner agencies to review programs and services needed on Hawaiʻi Island.
- Hawaii Island United Way distributes your donations to partner agencies, investing in specific programs with measurable results.
- Program outcomes are measured on a semi-annual basis and outcomes are made available to the community.
By tracking outcomes, we are better able to address the changing needs of our community.
Unlike the majority of United Way agencies across the nation that offer non-restricted funding to health and human service non-profit agencies, the Hawaii Island United Way invests in programs.
Program funding lends itself to clear accountability, providing the means to measure specific outcomes for results we can all see. The Hawaii Island United Way partners with health and human service organizations on the Big Island who have a strong track record in providing vital services to local communities. The Hawaii Island United Way casts a wide net and targets programs that touch the lives of individuals and families – from keiki to kupuna.
