Tech for Teachers

Mahalo to every member and partner who donated to our Tech for Teachers campaign!

Your generosity helped us to quickly raise $47,000, which included HBR's $20,000 seed donation. This allowed us to gift tech items to 218 educators across 61 schools on O'ahu representing all Complex Areas and two schools on Moloka'i.

About our Tech for Teachers campaign

Who we helped:

As an association of REALTORS®, the welfare of our community, our friends, and our neighbors are extremely important to us. The Honolulu Board of REALTORS® (HBR) wants to help the hardworking educators on Oʻahu and Molokaʻi, who help our keiki continue to learn despite limited resources and the hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Educators are doing so much to ensure that our keiki continue to learn during this pandemic. We want to help make their job a little easier so they can continue to nurture our most precious commodity -- the next generation of leaders and innovators.

How we helped:

HBR donated $20,000 to seed our Tech for Teachers campaign to support local teachers so they can help our keiki through distance learning. We received more than 200 great applications from teachers who were extremely appreciative for a chance to receive a tech package (valued at $300). 

We asked our members to collectively match this donation amount so that together we could help more teachers. We had 111 individual HBR members, firms, and partners step up and donate enough for us to surpass our fundraising goal and allowed us to provide something to everyone who applied.

Donations went towards the purchase of tech items based on the teacher's application. We were able to gift tech items to 218 educators across 63 different schools on O'ahu and Moloka'i representing all Complex Areas.

Teachers receive a tech package that includes a computer monitor, wireless headphones, and a document camera. For requested items not available in our tech package, teachers were provided with a Best Buy gift card for them to purchase what they needed. 

The items are presented to the teachers at each school from late February to mid-March 2021.
