"bonus boost" for literacy

By donating through the Aloha for Hawaii Charities site, 100% of your donation will be given to the local nonprofit of your choice, AND once that nonprofit receives $1,000 in total donations, a "Bonus Boost" from the Friends of Hawaii Charities will be unlocked! 

Your donation and your impact can be multiplied this holiday season for free!


If you can read this, you can help!

Your generous and much-needed gift directly benefits our Family Literacy Libraries, Bookmobile Program, Adult Tutoring Program, Parents Achieving Literacy Project, and Drop-In Center -- proven literacy programs that help over 3,000 adults and children to improve their reading, writing, and life skills and so much more! With over 400 terrific volunteers involved in this work, we are one of the most cost-effective ways to truly help a family in need.

Right now, 1 in 6 adults cannot read or write at even a basic level in Hawaii, and their keiki are at greater risk of being illiterate or not finishing school. But together we can help change this. Greater literacy is not a hand-out, but a gift that helps those in need change their lives. YOU can give the gift of literacy and bring hope, opportunity and a brighter future to a family in need.
