About Aloha United Way

Aloha United Way is a non-profit agency that has been serving Oahu for over 100 years. We bring resources, organizations, and people together to advance the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community.

Leading With Equity

We believe that diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice are essential for a healthy society. It is our responsibility to actively practice and promote these values and condemn all forms of discrimination in our daily work.

Aloha United Way recognizes the impacts of colonialism, structural racism, ethnic discrimination, and other forms of oppression that have had significant and disproportionate influences on generations of people in Hawai’i. We acknowledge that these inequities are the result of systems and practices that have contributed and continue to contribute to persistent disparities. Each community member, donor, volunteer, advocate, and employee must have equal access to solving community problems.

Aloha United Way funds impact-based programs to improve the socio-economic status, health outcomes, education, and overall well-being of Native Hawaiian and other historically marginalized communities, and is committed to working with community partners to co-create solutions with Native Hawaiian, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) that dismantle these systemic inequities and create an equitable and just Hawai’i where everyone has access to the resources, support, opportunities and networks needed to thrive.

Equal Opportunity Employer

Aloha United Way is an equal opportunity employer and committed to building an organization that is diverse, and a work environment that is safe and inclusive for all employees. We recognize that generations of Native Hawaiians, people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ+ people have been marginalized. Because we believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do, we strongly encourage applicants from these identities to apply. Candidates from all spectrums of race, ethnicities, national origins, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, religions, socio-economic backgrounds, and levels of physical abilities are welcome to apply. AUW values a wide range of experience and encourage candidates to submit applications even if candidates do not meet all preferred criteria.
