& Charitable Giving
In 2015, Mauna Kea Resort celebrated its 50th anniversary with “50 Acts of Aloha” contributing more than 700 volunteer hours and raising more than $500,000 in cash and in-kind for the community and charitable causes. Since then we have instituted 15 annual acts of aloha, including a Legacy Dinner Series of farm-to-table fundraising dinners highlighting Hawaii suppliers and supporting local scholarships. We also partner with island schools through the ClimbHI partnership LEI program to encourage career development in food and beverage, hospitality, engineering, and administration.
And, each year our team members participate in the annual Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association Visitor Industry Charity Walk. The Charity Walk occurs on Hawaii Island, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai and Oahu on the same day in May and on average more than $2 million is raised annually benefiting approximately 400 local charities.
