The St. Francis Healthcare Foundation of Hawaii was established in 1984 as a subsidiary of St. Francis Healthcare System. Its purpose is to raise funds, acquire and hold assets, both real and personal, and provide community education that enhance and support the activities of St. Francis Healthcare System and its subsidiaries.
The St. Francis Healthcare Foundation seeks financial support from individuals, businesses and organizations to further the St. Francis mission. As a tribute to the visionary Sisters who built St. Francis Medical Center, the Foundation began a campaign called “The Vision Continues” in 1988. The late Maurice J. Sullivan, founder of Foodland Super Market, chaired the 10-year, $20 million campaign. Following its success, “The Vision Continues: 2010” was launched in 1996 to raise $30 million and surpassed its goal in 2002. The next campaign, “New Millennium Campaign 2,” was launched in 2002 and ended in 2005. The three campaigns, in total, have raised more than $67.9 million for St. Francis programs and services.
The Foundation’s current $20 million Vision Campaign includes raising funds for the following:
· “The Vision – Hospice East” - $5 million

The Foundation’s Community Development Program coordinates a variety of activities, such as community education programs, golf tournaments, planned giving seminars, and special fund raising benefits.
St. Francis Healthcare Foundation envisioned a special program in which to honor and publicly thank Hawaii’s legendary entertainers who have shared their time and talent to lift the spirits of sick patients in the medical centers and clinical settings. The inaugural “An Evening of Aloha” concert was held in 2002 at the Hawaii Theatre, paying tribute to Auntie Genoa Keawe, featuring Amy Hanaialii, Gabe Baltazar, Na Palapalai, Tony C, O’brian Eselu, and more.

The 2004 honoree was Don Ho, with performances by Sam Kapu, Marlene Sai, Boyce Rodrigues, Nina Kealiiwahamana, Gary Aiko, and others.

Featured entertainers included Iva Kinimaka, Jimmy Borges, Gabe Baltazar, Cathy Foy, Penny Silva-Wells, and more. Click here for photos from 2006 “An Evening of Aloha” Honoring Danny Kaleikini.
Its annual golf tournament provides visibility and opportunities for community leaders, business professionals, physicians, and avid golfers to come together for a good cause. Building on the success of “Swing-For-Life” and “GOLFWEST” golf tournaments, the Foundation’s benefit golf tournaments have raised more than $1 million for the Franciscan Sisters’ programs and services.
