Education is an AFCEA core value.

AFCEA Hawaii Educational Foundation was established in April 2013, and is a registered 501(c) 3 non-profit organization in the State of Hawaii. Its’ primary purpose is to raise money for scholarships, grants and awards.

The Foundation will continue to work with the AFCEA Hawaii membership and the community at large, both private, public and academia, to increase the investment in education initiatives.

One of the objectives is to grow the AFCEA Hawaii Educational Foundation programs so that AFCEA becomes recognized in the Hawaii community. This can only happen through the partnerships and alliances.  Establishing matching sponsorships and  recruiting corporate sponsors will help provide the support needed to continually increase the number of scholarships and grants each year.

In 2013,  the Foundation launched an endowment for the Donna Russell Scholarship for Distinguished Service STEM Teacher Scholarship , this is an award for an undergraduate, graduate or credential/ licensure student attending a college or university in the State of Hawaii for the purpose of teaching a STEM subject at a middle or secondary school in the State of Hawaii.

This year we presented the Donna Russell Scholarship for Distinguished Service STEM Teacher Scholarship to Ms Euvelyn Calma, a teacher at Nanakuli High School. From the local Hawaii Chapter , we also presented a second scholarship to Ms. Kelsy Kai-Yamamoto, a teacher at Waipahu High School.  Both teachers were awarded a $5,000 scholarship.. In addition to scholarships, current aspiring teachers of STEM subjects will be able to apply for Science Teaching Tools Grants.

One of the Foundation’s future initiatives is to create programs to support JROTC and ROTC units in Hawaii as well as our brave Men and Women in Transition aka Wounded Warriors.

As stated the Foundation’s primary goal is to raise money for these programs and without generous donors and continuous fund-raising activity, those annual scholarships, grants and awards as well as new initiatives can not be funded.  The Foundation commits to holding  one major fundraiser a year to support and continue these programs.
