Our impact
Collectively, we have made great progress and growth, but what excites us the most is the enormous potential we have to do even more.

Mahalo donors of the Charles Cockett ‘Ohana Scholarship! I am so blessed and grateful for your generosity in helping me financially complete my last year of college! This means so much to my ‘ohana and I. I am so grateful for your generosity as it allows me to further my education that will help me in my future endeavors. Giving back to my lāhui is one of my main goals and to also be able to perpetuate and cultivate our native practices and traditions. By receiving this degree I will hopefully be able to use what I have learned through out my educational journey to manage our land property better and to ensure a healthy and sustainable lifestyle for future generations. Being the last of three children and my dad just retiring, your gift will help tremendously take some of the financial stresses off our back in terms of paying for college tuition. I hope to finish strong in these last few semesters and ultimately use my education to help the Hawaiian community and ensure the protection of our natural resources. Words cannot express how much I appreciate this award. Mahalo nui!
