Please contact Kuakini Foundation at (808) 547-9296 to make a special gift or to get more information about the following ways to make a gift. 

Gifts of cash or pledges over a period of years are a way to make an immediate gift to Kuakini.

Special Tributes
Gifts can be made to honor a friend or relative. Also, gifts can be made in memory of a loved one or special person. “In lieu of flowers” donations for hospitalized patients and residents in the long-term care facilities can also be made through Kuakini Foundation.

Contributions of appreciated securities can be advantageous to donors who have held the assets for a long period of time and wish to avoid a capital gains tax.

Real Estate
Unencumbered Real estate that is marketable can be donated to Kuakini. Real estate donated to Kuakini can generate a current income tax deduction and remove the property from your taxable estate.

Gifts can be made through wills for a specified amount, a percentage of the estate, or specific assets.

Life Insurance
An existing or new life insurance policy can be contributed to Kuakini by naming Kuakini Foundation as the owner and beneficiary or as one of the beneficiaries.

Gifts of Closely Held Stock
A transfer of closely held stock to Kuakini generates an income tax charitable deduction at the appraised fair market value of the stock.

Planned Gifts
The Planned Giving Program provides economic and tax benefits for donors that might not otherwise be available in their estate and financial planning. Options for planned giving include charitable remainder trusts, deferred gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, pooled income funds, and other planned giving methods. Kuakini Foundation staff is available to discuss the many options for planned gifts with interested persons and potential donors at no obligation.
