Friends of the Conference
Friends of the Conference is the annual giving fund of the ministries of the Hawai‘i Conference. By being a Friend of the Hawai‘i Conference, you can help us more fully share God's love and justice for all by training church leaders and ministers; providing resources to congregations in search of a pastor or doing church development; creating experiences for youth and young adults to develop faith and leadership skills; and working with partners locally and globally to speak and live out God's word.
Hawai'i Disaster Relief Fund
Gifts to the Hawai'i Disaster Relief Fund allow the Conference to respond quickly and efficiently to both large and small natural and human caused disasters throughout our islands. Grants from this Fund are intended to support emergency relief efforts immediately following a disaster, as well as early recovery and/or long-term recovery work. Grant amounts and availability will vary depending upon need and existing resources. Donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the funds go directly to disaster relief and recovery in Hawai'i.
Henry Ōpukaha‘ia Scholarship Fund
The Henry Ōpukaha‘ia Scholarship Fund supports the training of clergy for Christian mission by providing financial aid for seminary students who have in-care standing with their association and continuing education funds for active ministers.

UCC Disaster Relief
UCC Disaster Ministries provides lifesaving relief to survivors of natural and human-induced disasters worldwide. When donating money for disaster relief, you can designate funds for a specific disaster or give "undesignated dollars" (money not designated for a specific disaster). Undesignated donations are highly encouraged because they allow the United Church of Christ to focus on the most vulnerable communities. One hundred percent of funds designated for disaster relief to the UCC are used for disaster relief and rehabilitation programming.
Vesper Maile Ito Fund
This fund provides scholarships to enable youth and young adult participation in events such as the UCC National Youth Events, ‘Aha Youth Events, and UCC Western Regional Youth Events. The fund was created in memory of Vesper Maile Ito who enjoyed participating in many of the youth activities but died in a tragic vehicle accident the summer before her senior year of high school.
