Each year, Hawaii's Better Business Bureau Torch Awards program helps illuminate the importance of a marketplace where buyers and sellers, and donors and charities can trust each other. BBB’s Torch Awards promote trust in the marketplace and honor local businesses and public charities for their outstanding commitment to fair, honest, and ethical marketplace practices.

BBB Torch Awards are open to all Hawaii businesses and 501(c)(3) public charities. BBB accreditation is not required, however those nominated must be in good standing with Hawaii’s BBB.
