Bank, foundation launch $2M scholarship fund

First Hawaiian Bank and the Hawaii Community Foundation announced recently the Stronger Together Hawaii Scholarship Fund to support career readiness in Hawaii’s 2020 public high school graduates.

First Hawaiian Bank and Hawaii Community Foundation contributed $1 million each to seed the fund to support this year’s graduating cohort, whose school year and critical planning months were cut short due to COVID-19.

To allow 2020 public school graduates the opportunity to pursue their own desired path, this fund steps out of the box of a traditional scholarship and is designed to be student-centered, providing flexible funding for a college or vocational degree, or a certificate program at accredited institutions in Hawaii or out of the state. Scholarships will be awarded on a case-by-case basis, and funding can cover traditional educational expenses, such as tuition and books, or other emergency expenses that may threaten to derail a student who does not have a financial safety net from furthering their education.

“We recognize that each senior has their own story and their own needs,” said Bob Harrison, chairman, president and CEO of First Hawaiian Bank. “The Stronger Together Hawaii Scholarship fund is designed to remove as many barriers as possible for this year’s high school graduates by offering flexible funding, and a range of continuing education options to encourage students to pursue their dreams — and be supported in the process.”

To be eligible for scholarship funds, 2020 Hawaii public school graduates must participate in the Next Steps to Your Future program of the University of Hawaii and P20, which was announced in May. The program provides advisor support and free UH Community College courses on career exploration to help graduating seniors transition to first hawaiian bank foundation school education or job training. For more information visit, http://uhcc.hawaii.edu/nextstep.

Graduating public school seniors who are from low- to middle-income families will receive priority and neighbor island graduates are encouraged to apply, with a reminder to students that geography may no longer be a barrier, given that coursework for many programs are now entirely online.

“At this time when many families are struggling financially, we are launching first hawaiian bank foundation new approach to our scholarships program,” said Micah Kane, president and CEO of Hawaii Community Foundation. “The Stronger Together Hawaii Scholarship Fund will allow graduates to pursue the path that is right for them—whether that is job training or a four-year degree. We believe supporting these students goes beyond investing in their individual futures. Their success is Hawaii’s success and we are committed to doing all that we can to help them.”

“We cannot thank First Hawaiian Bank and the Hawaii Community Foundation enough for their support of the class of 2020,” said David Lassner, University of Hawaii president. “Their generosity will help students and their families in this time of unprecedented crisis by enabling the gift of post-secondary first hawaiian bank foundation and their better future, which represents an investment in a better future for all of Hawaii.”

Welcome to the Hawaii Justice Foundation

Establishing an Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (“IOLTA”) Account

You will find the process of establishing an IOLTA account easier than you probably now imagine.  Your IOLTA account is commonly referred to as your “trust account,” since the funds in the IOLTA account are held by you in trust for your client until fees and costs are earned and billed to the client, at which time they can then be transferred to another appropriate location.  Please work directly with your bank to establish your IOLTA account.  Please fax or mail to the HSBA a copy of a voided check or deposit slip, once you have your new IOLTA account established.For more detailed information, please review below both “Complying with Rule 11” and “Notice to Financial Institution–Form 2” (which is the form you should give to your bank regarding establishing your trust account.)

Currently, nine banks participate in the IOLTA program.  They are:  American Savings Bank, Bank of Hawaii, Bank of the Orient, Central Pacific Bank, First Foundation Bank (formerly known as Pacific Rim Bank), First Hawaiian Bank, Hawaii National Bank, Home Street Bank, and Ohana Pacific Bank.  You are free to choose any of these nine banks that you wish.  Of these nine banks, five are “Prime Partner Banks,” which means these five banks have made arrangements to pay higher rates of interest to HJF. These five banks are:  American Savings Bank, Bank of Hawaii, Central Pacific Bank, First Foundation Bank, and First Hawaiian Bank.

For all of the IOLTA banks, all typical monthly service fees (other than special fees charged for cashier’s checks, insufficient funds, etc.) are paid by your bank and/or Hawaii Justice Foundation (“HJF”).  The net monthly interest from your trust account is paid over to HJF, and HJF uses this to fund various legal services projects and related activities.  All fifty states have similar programs.

We realize that it will take some of your valuable time to establish your IOLTA account, and we appreciate your efforts.  The Office of Disciplinary Counsel does require that unearned client fees be handled appropriately, either through your IOLTA account or through a special trust account set up for a particular transaction.  You should contact the Office of Disciplinary Counsel if you have specific questions, or you should refer to Rule 11 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Hawaii.  Rule 11 outlines in detail the requirements of IOLTA accounts.

Each year in November or early December, the Hawaii State Bar Association (“HSBA”) will send you a HSBA Registration Statement for the following year.  Part of that registration information package will be your “IOLTA Certification,” which is a simple one-page form.  To meet your IOLTA reporting requirements, you need to complete and include that form with your yearly HSBA registration.  Thus, once you have the IOLTA account set up, maintenance of your IOLTA account is relatively easy.  Please report to the HSBA any changes in the location of your IOLTA trust account.  We wish you the very best in your practice of law, phone call account services thank you again for your cooperation.
