Nominations Being Accepted for Bank’s Community Award
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2013 Monty Richards Hawaii Island Community Award.
The Bank of Hawaii awards for non-profit organizations provides one or more grants of up to $25,000.
Eligible organizations in Hawaii County are invited to apply by July 5. Nominations may be made by the public or by the 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organizations themselves.
The award was established in 2008 in honor of Herbert “Monty” Montague Richards Jr., a North Kohala rancher, dedicated Big Island community leader and former longtime board director for Bank of Hawaii.
Award selection will be based on exemplary fulfillment of the organization’s mission, leadership demonstrated by the organization’s executive director and board and the organization’s engagement in community development, education or human services.
Additional consideration will be given to organizations that also focus on community development through financial education programs.
Application forms are available at all Hawaii Island branches or by calling (808) 854-2029 or (808) 854-2021.
