Mahalo Means Thank You!

Giving generously to others without expecting anything in return is at the heart and soul of Hawaiian culture, and a core value of KING'S HAWAIIAN. Giving is more than just a social formality; it is a way to say 'thank you' or to offer assistance. Giving brings joy to those around you.

We invite you, our ohana (the Hawaiian word for 'extended family'), to share your Aloha Spirit by participating in KING'S HAWAIIAN Project Mahalo. Each Project Mahalo charitable partner will receive a minimum $10,000 donation, and the partner earning the highest number of votes will instead receive a $25,000 donation.

Spread the word.

Step 1 Select the partner below which best exemplifies Sharing the Hawaiian Way.

Which organization do you feel best embodies the spirit of giving generously to others, honoring family and community, and reflecting the genuine hospitality and graciousness of Hawaii?
