MAHALO NUI LOA!
A heartfelt thanks to our Queen’s ‘ohana who generously contributed to the campaign.
During the Season of Gratitude, we are given an opportunity to share with those who might need a helping hand or an act of kindness. Through our Employee Giving Campaign, we can share with those who are in need. This year, our campaign will run from October 17 to November 30 with a goal of raising $375,000. You may direct your gift to any or all of the programs below.
Any time a member of our ‘ohana faces an economic or personal hardship, we want to be able to help. This emergency financial assistance program provides a one-time grant to employees of The Queen’s Health System and its affiliates who are facing economic hardships due to accident, loss or a qualified disaster. Your gift to this fund directly supports a member of the Queen’s ‘ohana, providing critical support to caregivers who are facing challenging times.
We are committed to fostering an environment that is not only caring and healing for our patients, but also caring and engaging for our nurses. We are focusing on the expansion of three key areas: improved learning experiences for our next generation of caregivers; supporting the well-being of our nursing workforce while creating growth opportunities – at all levels – through education, fellowships and certifications to expand their scope of practice; and innovating for the future to attract and retain a skilled and agile nursing workforce that keeps pace with the rapidly-changing health care landscape. Investing in our nurses ultimately enhances our ability to improve the health of our population, meet the needs of vulnerable communities, and address health inequities.

In Hawaiʻi, nearly a quarter of a million residents struggle with food insecurity. Hawai‘i Foodbank provides critical food assistance to anyone facing hunger, which includes out-of-work parents, isolated kūpuna, and one in four keiki. A donation of just $39.00 provides three meals a day for a week for a family of four. And if you would like to designate your gift to a particular island, there is a drop-down menu under Hawai‘i Foodbank on our Employee Giving Campaign site.
