Charitable Contributions

In addition to our annual scholarship opportunities, HAIC’s philanthropic contributions have included port-related donations to ITEP’s GESA Academy, Pacific Rim Academy, Port of Long Beach Scholarship Program, and the International Seafarers Center of Long Beach and Los Angeles. Each contribution is given careful thought, as we understand the responsibility we have to support young minds with financial assistance and career programming as they set out on their desired life path.  We are extremely grateful to have also received matching funds for our scholarships from various HAIC member firms, and we continue to encourage members to contribute to HAIC’s scholarship fund if they are in a position to do so.
