About Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation

Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation (HCCF) is the only organization in the State of Hawaii dedicated exclusively to providing services to children with cancer and their families. The foundation provides a wide range of services and programs to families, including financial assistance, social events, education and advocacy. All services and programs that HCCF provides are entirely free to the families in need.

The Foundation was formed in 1991 by a group of parents and medical providers after a statewide needs assessment showed that there were many childhood cancer needs not being met by any existing entity. HCCF was granted IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit status in 1993. All funds donated to HCCF remain in Hawaii, with 95 cents of every dollar received put towards providing direct services for the children with cancer and their families.
