Giving back to your community through volunteering, nonprofit groups, charities or other means does so much for those in need and keeps Kaua‘i the best place on Earth to live. Giving back can be done in so many ways, by giving money, time, advice or skills. No matter how we do it, giving back can touch people’s lives and can ripple out in a variety of ways.

It is well known that many Kaua‘i Realtors give a portion of each real estate commission check to charities and organizations of their choice. And, many of the Kaua‘i brokerages give back too.

Many realtors have teamed up with the Young Professionals Network (YPN) to help build homes on Kaua‘i through Habitat for Humanity.

Hawai‘i Life agents give back through The Hawai‘i Life Charitable Fund (HLCF), the nonprofit fundraising arm of Hawai‘i Life, supporting local charities that are aligned with their mission of working to preserve Hawai‘i’s beauty and culture by supporting its people. Each year, agents are asked to help choose the theme for giving from the HLCF to help guide their Hawai‘i Love donations to local causes that are closest to their heart.

These are only a few of the numerous Kaua‘i Brokerages that ensures the community they do business in benefits as well. Whether it’s volunteering at an event, helping a neighbor or making a monetary donation, it’s not the act that matters. Even the smallest of deeds can ignite change and positively impact Kaua‘i by providing a renewed sense of hope. The Kaua‘i Board of Realtors is proud to partner with many agencies to keep Kaua‘i special. If you have any ideas on community giving and would like to share them, email
