The Moss Foundation recently made a $50,000 donation to the Hawai‘i Community Foundation to help improve youth education and assist homeless families.

The foundation is dedicated to helping those in the communities it serves and is honored to partner with HCF on these very important programs.

The funds will be used to help improve academic performance and reduce the risk of the school drop-out rate among Hawai‘i’s youth and to increase the number of Hawai‘i’s homeless families placed in stable housing.

“We greatly appreciate the Moss Foundation’s generous donation,” commented HCF President and COO Micah Kāne. “Their team’s commitment to the future of our youth and the needs of our homeless families goes beyond their financial support. We look forward to a long-term partnership with Moss where together we can make a difference with both of these important initiatives.”

Moss is dedicated to be an integral partner in Hawai‘i by not only constructing buildings, but also by helping create communities. Through the company’s foundation, it can continue to give back to these communities long after our work is done.

Furthermore, Moss encourages all of its employees to strengthen the relationships they have in the areas where they work and live and find ways to enhance the community and environment around them.

“Creating lasting relationships is a true cornerstone at Moss,” said Doug Rogers, vice president for Moss in Hawai‘i. “This holds true for those we work with, as well as those living in the areas which we serve. While Moss is relatively new to the Hawai‘i market, our contributions are not only meant to make a difference today but also work toward a brighter tomorrow.”

The positive impact of the HCF over the past 100 years is realized across so many needs within the state. The Moss Foundation’s recent donation will directly support HCF’s Connecting for Success and Housing ASAP programs.
