Get Involved with Hawaiian Eye Foundation


Please consider making a monetary donation in support of Hawaiian Eye Foundation’s programs.

HEF operates as a 501(c)(3) non-profit under our parent organization, Project Vision Hawai’i. Thus donations are tax deductible as charitable contributions in the United States. We provide prompt written documentation of all donations.

We need monetary donations for purchasing and shipping equipment, supplies, and eye glasses; for training scholarships; and for costs associated with coordinating our mission programs and volunteers. When making your donation, please let us know if you would like to direct your donation to a specific country or program, or if you prefer your donation be used wherever it is needed most. 

We welcome bequests, grants, or securities donations such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

Our volunteers work for nothing, and pay their own travel costs, so more of your money can go directly to support our program services!

Please consider a monetary donation to give the gift of sight for someone less fortunate.

Donors may specify how they wish their contributions to be used, and such restrictions will be honored; however, unrestricted donations allow us the flexibility to use funds wherever the need is most urgent.
