Attention: Hawaii Island Residents!

If you wish to donate to Hawaii Island United Way, or to designate a donation to a Hawaii Island United Way agency, you may do so directly from the webpage.
PATCH is a Hawaii Island United Way Agency.

Just so you are aware, the Hawaii Island United Way is a completely SEPARATE organization from the Aloha United Way.  The Hawaii Island United Way raises money and awareness AND promotes organizations providing services on the Big Island. 
98% of all dollars raised for HIUW programs stay on the island and go toward funding the 55 programs the Hawaii Island United Way are supporting this year.
