Kahuna Kares

 

Kahuna is a company that strongly believes in fostering an environment of positive growth, creativity, collaboration and confidence, all the while giving back to the community. We believe that our people are our greatest natural resource, and in addition to supporting and enhancing work lives, we want to support the causes our employees are truly passionate about within the communities they live and work.

Kahuna Kares is an established charitable giving program that provides Kahuna employees the opportunity to further support non-profit charities of their choice through corporate giving and internal fundraising events.

Since the program's inception in 2016, Kahuna Kares has contributed more than $8,025 in matching donations to employee supported charities and internally raised more then $27,500 internally via fun team building events for charities our people are passionate about.

Recently Kahuna Kares has supported:

  • The Lisa Nelson Memorial Scholarship, awarded to three high school students each year in honor of Lisa Nelson, the sister of our own Scott Schamp.
  • The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a non-profit volunteer organization that raises money for childhood cancer research through head-shaving events.
  • Operation Gratitude, a non-profit organization that collects and assembles care packages and letters of appreciation for first responders, new recruits, wounded heroes and troops deployed overseas.
  • Folds of Honor, a non-profit organization committed to providing educational scholarships to the spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.

In addition, every Thanksgiving Kahuna conducts a food drive collection of non-perishable items for a local food pantry — recently Community Food Shares of Broomfield and Boulder counties.
