GBI was honored as the 2019 Outstanding Corporation by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Aloha Chapter as part of its National Philanthropy Day program.
GBI was acknowledged for its myriad philanthropic contributions on Hawai‘i during the 2019 National Philanthropy Day conference and awards luncheon at the Sheraton Waikiki on Wednesday, Nov. 13. Held two days before National Philanthropy Day on Nov. 15, the awards luncheon paid tribute to individuals and organizations across the state that have made a lasting impact on their communities. GBI was jointly nominated by the Hawaii Community Foundation and the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust.
“National Philanthropy Day is the day we recognize and pay tribute to the contributions that philanthropy and philanthropists have made to our great city and our nation,” AFP Aloha Chapter President Cathy Alsup said in a recent issue of Hawaii Business Magazine. “Our awardees this year have made major commitments to support healthy families, protect our environment, educate our keiki and advance healthcare in Hawai‘i.”
