G70 Foundation awards $50K

HONOLULU – The G70 Foundation, created in 2002 by employees of Hawaii’s leading design firm G70, awarded $50,000 to 12 local community organizations, environmental groups and nonprofits in December 2018. Three of the recipients—Boys To Men Mentoring Network, Hilo United Methodist Church, and Na Mamo O Kawa—are Hawaii Island nonprofits.
“The G70 Foundation Fund provides a rewarding pathway to connect G70 with local community organizations focused on building healthier communities in Hawaii,” said Cami Kloster, senior planner and associate at G70 who oversees the G70 Foundation. “This year, there were many deserving groups engaging in community development, environmental sustainability, housing and shelter, human services, and youth development, and G70 employees selected 12 awardees representing diverse communities across the state.”
Since 2002, the G70 Foundation has donated more than $650,000 to local nonprofit organizations that concentrate on improving communities in Hawaii through design, education, culture, environmental sustainment and community development.
The G70 Foundation is a donor-advised fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation.
