Donations Make a Difference

The Islands Hana Mana Foundation

Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
Matthew 22:37-39

MISSION: The mission of the Islands Hana Mana Foundation (IHM) is multi-faceted and geographically diverse with three specific Funds:

1. Patient Benevolence Fund - IHM works with its partner hospice centers to provide benevolence fund grants to patients and families.
2. Hawaii Impact Fund - IHM supports nonprofit medical, social and educational organizations serving Hawai'i, with a specific focus on Oahu and Maui.
3. Global Impact Fund - IHM has a global reach that supports nonprofit youth and family organizations which focus on health, human services, education and Christian missions throughout the world.

HISTORY: The Islands Hana Mana Foundation was opened in April, 2018 and seeks to continue the charitable intent of its founder and current board members who founded Islands Hospice in 2008 as a faith based, Christian nonprofit.

Care, Comfort and Compassion...

Islands Hospice is a nonprofit, faith based organization that brings care, compassion and comfort to people facing life-limiting illnesses and to those grieving the loss of a loved one. Founded in 2008, our mission is to provide the highest quality, comprehensive hospice care focused on serving the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of terminally ill patients and their loved ones. In the same way, Islands Hospice seeks to bring care, compassion and comfort to Hawaii and beyond through charitable giving from the Islands Hana Mana Foundation.


If you are interested in continuing the legacy started by Islands Hospice and want to partner with the Islands Hana Mana Foundation in its threefold mission you can make tax-deductible donations directly to the Foundation.

Please make checks payable to Islands Hana Mana Foundation and in the memo, be sure to include which fund you want your gift applied to (Patient Benevolence Fund, Hawaii Impact Fund or Global Impact Fund).
