$100,000 Gift to HPR Develops Into a Million HawaiianMiles for Kapi‘olani Medical Center

$100,000 Gift to HPR Develops Into a Million HawaiianMiles for Kapi‘olani Medical Center

On the eve of its fall 2013 pledge drive, Hawaii Public Radio received one of the largest individual donations in its 32-year history. Additionally, the uniquely creative gift promises to have high-flying benefits. A $100,000 donation from long-time station listener, real estate executive, and local philanthropist Dick Gushman is being made in a way that results in a unique multiplication of his gift. Gushman requested that his selected donor’s premium – one million frequent-flyer miles from HPR sponsor Hawaiian Airlines – be transferred to benefit another local non-profit. Hawaii Public Radio management identified Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women and Children’s Family Fund as the recipient. As a result, one million “HawaiianMiles” will be employed to fly neighbor island children to and from Honolulu, when they are in need of the specialized care that only Kapi‘olani can provide.

While the government has created many protections for consumers to ensure that lenders are only giving loans to those who can repay them, the mortgage market has many more options now. “Sitting down with a loan officer and running your numbers could pleasantly surprise you on your ability to buy a home or condo,” Hostelley adds.
