“We are proud of our Foundation’s support of the local nonprofit community and their efforts to build a stronger Hawaii,” said Allen Uyeda, FICOH’s president and CEO. “As a group, Hawaii companies take their responsibility back to the community very seriously. Our philosophy at FICOH is that to continue to thrive as a company, we must invest in Hawaii’s future.”
The FICOH Charitable Foundation assisted 35 different organizations in the first half of the year, Uyeda added.
Established in 1998, the FICOH Foundation has four areas of focus – Education & Career Development; Economic & Workforce Development; Family, Social Services & Healthcare; and Civic, Culture and the Arts. The Foundation also matches gifts to eligible nonprofits made by FICOH associates.
