Where Money Has a Heart

Unlike a bank that’s more concerned with profit, we’re a not-for-profit concerned with our member’s financial and personal well-being. We’re all about people helping people. We hope that it shows in everything we do.

Grants & Scholarships

Hawaii State FCU has already awarded more than half a million dollars in scholarships since 1996. Recipients each receive $2,000 to be used toward a university, college or trade/vocational school.


It’s important to recognize and appreciate everything our Hawaii teachers do for our kids. That’s why we created the Investing in Education Grant. The money can be used to buy classroom supplies, books, electronics and more.


We believe in volunteering for worthwhile causes in our local communities. Look for us out in the community year-round as we do our part to improve the lives of others.
