HawaiiUSA has funded nearly 900 Department of Education teacher stipends since 2001, 

with a total of $18,210 awarded to 56 teachers in 2022. 


HawaiiUSA recognizes the need within our educational community to provide support to professional and para-professional educators. Through a common commitment and desire, HawaiiUSA and the Hawai‘i Department of Education’s (DOE) Personnel Development Branch (PDB) formed a partnership to extend opportunities for career enhancement for DOE personnel. This generous proposal fosters the commitment to professional growth by both parties and enhances the partnership between PDB and the Credit Union.
