    Incorporated: 12/10/87 Member: No

    Mission Statement: "The Foundation is a statewide public
    foundation. Its mission is to build community among all
    people, now and for the future, by: using leadership
    effectively to improve life for the people and the environment
    in Hawaii; carrying out flexible, visionary and inclusive
    grantmaking; and fostering an expanding pool of permanent
    charitable funds from diverse donors."

    Stated Purpose: "To receive & accept property to be
    administered exclusively for charitable purposes, primarily in
    or for the benefit of the community of the State of Hawaii. To
    operate exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary,
    religious, or educational purposes, within the meaning of Sect
    501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) 1986, including
    for such purposes, the making of distributions to individuals &
    organizations that qualify as tax exempt organizations under
    501(c)(3) of IRC 1986."

    Evaluation Conclusions: The Foundation has voluntarily provided
    all documentation requested. A review of the documentation
    indicates that the Foundation does not carry out direct
    services; it instead facilitates fund distribution from a pool
    of trusts and foundations it administers to non-profit
    organizations in Hawaii (other charities) which fall within its
    stated mission and purpose. The BBB's 23 charitable standards
    review charities that fund raise to provide direct services,
    therefore, the standards can not be applied to Hawai'i
    Community Foundation, as it falls outside the normal scope of
    this review.
    The Foundation's 1998 Independent Audit was conducted in
    accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, but
    because its policy is to prepare its financial statements on a
    modified cash basis, their present financial position and
    results of operations do not conform with generally accepted
    accounting principles.

    Governance:
    President & CEO: Kelvin Taketa
    Chairman & Governor: Ronald C. "Buzz" Wo
    Board Size: 23 Paid
    Staff Size: 36 F/T, 3 P/T

    Tax Status: Tax exempt as a charitable organization under
    Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. It is eligible
    to receive tax deductible donations for federal income tax
    purposes. IRS letter dated: 11/4/88
