American Savings Bank
Partners IN Development Foundation

We were honored to be the beneficiaries of American Savings Bank’s (ASB) 3rd Annual Curling Fundraiser last October, which raised over $100,000 for our Ka Pa‘alana Homeless Family Education Program! This sold-out fundraiser at Ice Palace included a free curling clinic with youth from PIDF’s Ke Kama Pono Safehouse program and students from Farrington High School, and an opportunity for participants of the fundraiser to compete in a curling tournament, be coached by Team USA Curling Olympians, and enjoy a delicious dinner buffet!

Kahiau Giving Campaign

Our relationship with ASB began in 2013 when a group of ASB employees volunteered their Saturday morning as part of ASB’s Seeds of Service Event, to help clean, plant seeds, and install irrigation at PIDF’s Green Machine. Since then, ASB has continued to increase their strong support of PIDF, volunteering again in 2014 at Ka Pa‘alana’s Hope Shelter and in 2015 at one of our Tūtū and Me Traveling Preschool sites on Hawai‘i Island. In addition to volunteering their time, ASB has generously donated $17,132.81 in 2015 and $27,379 in 2016 through their Kahiau Employee Giving Campaign. We are truly blessed by the relationships we have been able to develop with all of our supporters and donors and would like to thank ASB for their continued partnership and growing support of our Foundation over these past several years. Not only have they been generous in donating their time and money to our programs at PIDF, but through their support they have helped increase awareness of our programs and of the needs in the communities we serve.
