2020 Update

The Kona Hospital Foundation is dedicated to improving Kona Community Hospital for the entire community. We fund medical technology, expanded services and enhanced facilities that would otherwise be unavailable.

We are so grateful for every person and donation that has supported Kona Hospital Foundation’s ongoing mission to empower healthier lives through care and compassion in 2020.  It takes a lot of people giving all they can to improve and save lives.  Since 1984, Kona Hospital Foundation has helped by raising awareness about the needs of our community and distributing the funds necessary to best serve and support our family, friends and neighbors at our community hospital.  Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Kona Hospital Foundation in 2020 distributed $210,358.69 to Kona Community Hospital as follows:
