The Finance Factors Foundation announced that its Ninth Annual Charity Golf Tournament on September 21, 2023, generated $20,000 to benefit Maui Girl Scouts and the Girl Scouts of Hawaii STEM Center for Excellence at Camp Paumalū.
The tournament was held at the Hawaii Prince Golf Club on Oahu and featured 18 holes of play. Sponsorship packages ranged from platinum to corporate and nearly 150 players participated. This year’s proceeds will help to cover memberships for one year for Girl Scouts on Maui impacted by the recent wildfires.
Funds raised will also provide year-round opportunities in cybersecurity, astronomy, robotics, computer coding, botany, chemistry, environmental stewardship, and more at the STEM Center for Excellence on Oahu’s North Shore.
"The disasters on Maui have had a devastating impact on many families, and we want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to continue to participate in Girl Scouts and benefit from the programming and education that it provides,” said Rob Nelson, president of Finance Factors. "Girl Scouts helps girls and their families find compassion, courage, confidence and resilience, which is especially vital during these difficult times.”
The Finance Factors Foundation, the charitable arm of The Finance Factors Family of Companies which includes Finance Factors, Finance Insurance and Waipono Investment Corporation, donates more than $100,000 annually to philanthropic causes within Hawaii, specifically in the areas of education, sustainability, health and human services, community and civic affairs, and culture and the arts.
