Hawai‘i State Bar Foundation Announces New Nonprofit Education Series
March 15, 2021

The Hawai‘i State Bar Foundation (HSBF) has launched a Pandemic Education Program beginning on March 12, 2021. The program, provided free of charge for Hawai‘i nonprofits, provides training to help organizations interpret and comply with federal pandemic relief, as well as guide them through their ongoing operations.

The ten session training program is designed for nonprofit executive directors, key operational staff, board members, and attorneys that provide counsel to these entities.

"This effort is in keeping with the mission of the HSBF to provide charitable and philanthropic support of the Hawai‘i State Bar Association's mission by increasing public understanding of the law, improving the justice system, facilitating delivery of and access to legal services, promoting the highest ideals of the legal professional, and inspiring the philanthropic spirit in Hawaii's legal community," said Jan Boivin, vice president & director of the HSBF.

To register or learn more about the training, visit the Hawai‘i State Bar Foundation website. The first session below is available now, with three other sessions coming soon:

  • Session 1: Paycheck Protection Program Form Completion for Small Nonprofits
  • Session 2: 10 Things a Nonprofit Needs to Do to Survive the Pandemic
  • Session 3: Federal Contract & Grant Compliance 101 for Nonprofits
  • Session 4: HR for Nonprofits

Topics for six additional sessions will be determined and developed by a needs-based survey. Nonprofits with suggestions on topics can respond to the survey here. All ten sessions will be available on-demand throughout 2021.

The Pandemic Education Program is a partnership between the HSBF with support from Hawai‘i Community Foundation and First Hawaiian Bank.
