The 2020 Hawaii Pacific Health Employee Giving Campaign has raised over $1 million — for the fourth straight year — to support patient care and other community needs.

About $1,140,000 was raised this year through staff personal gifts and pledges, which is the most ever, HPH announced.

This is the 19th Employee Giving Campaign.

“The record-breaking outcome of this year’s Employee Giving Campaign demonstrates how our physicians, nurses and staff members are not only committed to providing quality health care, but they also want to contribute to the economic recovery of our broader community,” said HPH President and CEO Ray Vara in a statement. “We are extremely proud of our employees’ generous contributions in honor of our patients and community. As a not-for-profit health care system, we know how invaluable every donation can be, especially at this time.”

About $214,000 from the campaign will go to the Hawaii Community Foundation to help with community needs.

Most of the money raised from the campaign will benefit the following HPH programs and services: the Child Life and Chaplain Services programs at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children; the Cardiac and Emergency Care Fund at Pali Momi Medical Center; the Kokua Fund and Cardiac Care Fund at Straub Medical Center; the Malama Fund at Wilcox Medical Center; and the Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network.

HPH said that there 4,000 participants in the campaign this year, and said that about $73,000 were raised in system-wide fundraising events.
