Hawaii State FCU has added a new charitable component to its annual Board of Directors Election, aligning with Make-A-Wish Hawaii to fund up to $10,000 for local wishes.
Beginning March 2, when their elections open, Hawaii State FCU will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish Hawaii for every online vote pledged by its members. This is the first year the credit union is partnering with a nonprofit in this way, initiating a unique take on corporate giving.
Three out of five candidates will be elected to fill the seats of the credit union’s board of directors. Candidates are Dr. David Weiss,Ryan Morita, Russell Yamashita, David “Nalu” Akaka, and Rochelle Lee Gregson. Credit Union members can see candidate bios here.
“At Hawaii State FCU, our members can take an active role in guiding the future of this institution by voting for its board of directors,” says Andrew Rosen, President & CEO of Hawaii State FCU. “Voting online not only makes the election process quick and convenient, but it’s also better for the environment and helps the credit union save money on printing and mailing costs.”
The voting period closes April 10. All eligible members will be able to vote through a secure website or by paper ballot, but donations to Make-A-Wish Hawaii will only be made for online votes. To be eligible, individuals must be at least 16 years old and have been a member since Dec. 31, 2014.
Make-A-Wish Hawaii is so grateful to Hawaii State Federal Credit Union for aligning with our mission in this innovative way. For more information on Corporate Giving, contact Hospitality and Development Manager James Donnelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (808) 537-3118 ext. 118.
