Thank You


For this opportunity to ask for your support of Scouting. Our theme “Shaka for Scouting” captures the deep roots Scouting has had in Hawaii for more than a century.

Like the shaka, the story of Scouting is interwoven in the culture of Hawaii. The Scout Hawaiiana Award book reads like a guide into Hawaii’s past with excerpts by Mary Kawena Pukui. In it, Scouts learn how to build and cook in an imu, how to weave sandals from ki leaves and is a field manual of Hawaiian plants and birds.

“Onipaa.” That is the word Queen Lilliuokalani handstitched on a silk Hawaiian flag emblazoned with the royal crest and presented to the Scouts, known as the Queen’s Own Troop.

Onipaa means “strength.” With this spirit, join with us in keeping the history and culture of Scouting in Hawaii alive for the next generation. Your patronage is how we are able to delivery our program to 12,000 keiki throughout our islands and Aloha Council offers many ways to give. Let’s not let them down.

Shaka and Mahalo,
Mike Ching
VP Development
CFO, First Hawaiian Bank

Major Gifts Recognition

James E. West Endowment

The James E. West Award is a national recognition given to individuals who contribute $1,000 or more in cash or securities to the local council endowment trust fund. This contribution is in addition to, and does not diminish or replace, the donor's annual gift to our council's Friends of Scouting campaign. Organizations or individuals may contribute to this award in recognition of someone such as an Eagle Scout, Silver Beaver, adult leader or in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a birthday or anniversary.

The James E. West Award donor will receive a certificate, a distinctive lapel pin and an embroidered square knot for Scouters.

What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.

How does AmazonSmile work?

When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.

Is there any cost to charitable organizations or to customers?

No. There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to the charitable organizations selected by customers.

Do you charge any administrative fees or take any deduction from the donation amount?
 

No. Charities must register to receive donations and have a valid bank account to which we can route donations, but there is no charge to participate and we do not deduct any fees from the donation amount.


Combined Federal Campaign

The Aloha Council is participating in this year's Combined Federal Campaign, an annual work place charity campaign for all federal employees (civilian, postal and military personnel).
