PBS HAWAI‘I PRESENTS
The Land of Eb

 

This fictional story is set in the stark volcanic landscape of one of the most remote communities on Hawai‘i Island – Hawaiian Ocean View Estates. Jonithen Jackson portrays Jacob, a Marshallese immigrant father and grandfather, who struggles to provide for his large family. When Jacob overhears a cancer diagnosis from his doctor he keeps the news to himself, forgoing treatment in favor of working to pay off his property which he plans to pass down once he’s gone. Sensing his end, Jacob turns a small video camera on himself and begins to record his story – and that of his people, the Marshallese. The film is a contemplative look at a community in Hawaii still struggling to recover from the effects of the nuclear age. It is a profoundly realistic portrayal of one man’s unwillingness to let go of his dignity and the hope he has for his family’s future.

 

Gifts of Stocks and Bonds

Gifts of stock and other appreciated securities are a popular way to give because it may help you avoid the capital gains tax while giving you a charitable income tax deduction. It is also very easy to do, and as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, PBS Hawai‘i will not be taxed on gifts from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, or other tax deferred plan.

 

This is all the information you need to give a gift of stock to PBS Hawai‘i:

 

Firm: Morgan Stanley, LLC

Address: 733 Bishop Street, Honolulu 96813

DTC#: 0015

For the Benefit of: Hawaii Public Television Foundation dba PBS Hawaii

Account#: 129-180673

 

 

Neighborly Gifts that Hit the Spot

 

Leslie Wilcox, President and CEO of PBS HawaiiIf you’re lucky, there’s someone in your life who always comes up with a perfect gift–and often it’s an item that’s not even on your radar.

 

We sometimes feel that way at PBS Hawaii, with people helping us in ways that we don’t expect.

 

There are especially thoughtful people on Neighbor Islands. We send our “free” broadcast signals farther than those of any commercial TV station to reach more people, and Neighbor Islanders reach back.

 

Here are two recent examples, beginning with Kauai woodworker Dean Mayer:

 

—“I made a lot of sawdust, that’s how I made it.”

 

Dean is humbly explaining how he crafted a beautiful, rich-grained lobby desk for PBS Hawaii’s future home. It’s in his Omao workshop, ready to be shipped to Honolulu.

 

Kauai woodworker Dean Mayer created this reception desk for PBS Hawaii's future lobby.

The wood is from a large monkey pod tree that had to be cut down because its growth was threatening the safety of a home on the Koloa property of his friend, Dan Suga.

 

Dean says he was moved to make the desk because he enjoys PBS Hawaii programming.

 

Everyone who enters our future home will see Dean’s creation as soon as they open the door. We hope you’ll come and visit.

 

—“Everyone loved seeing Downton Abbey on the big screen.”

 

That’s Susan Bendon of Spreckelsville, Maui, talking about a “pop-up” screening she gamely pulled off with little notice. Taking time out from the busy holiday season, a group of Maui residents watched the highly anticipated premiere of Downton Abbey’s fi nal season more than a week before television viewers were able to see it. Susan, a PBS Hawaii Board Member, enlisted Seabury Hall’s Lynn Matayoshi and they presented the episode in the school’s comfortable auditorium.

In Honolulu, we worked with Ward Consolidated Theatres to give an advance screening for fans.

 

“PBS made many friends,” Susan said. See what I mean? With Lynn, Susan made it happen.

 

With Dan Suga’s tree, Dean made it happen. We are lucky indeed.

Island Insurance Foundation Donates $50,000 to PBS Hawaii for NEW HOME

Press Release Header

 

HONOLULU—The Island Insurance Foundation has donated $50,000 to PBS Hawaii for the renovation and construction of the public television station’s new facility.

 

Board chair Robert Alm and president and CEO Leslie Wilcox of PBS Hawaii receive the $50,000 check from the President of Island Insurance Foundation, Tyler Tokioka.

Construction of PBS Hawaii’s The Clarence T.C. Ching Campus began in November 2014, with completion in spring 2016. The existing one-story structure at the corner of Nimitz Highway and Sand Island Access Road (formerly the KFVE Newsplex) is being renovated and expanded to include a second story, for a total of 30,000 square feet under roof.

 

The structure will house a main television studio, a “Learning Zone” for students and teachers, and spaces that promote collaboration and partnerships for innovation.

 

“Island Insurance is proud to support PBS Hawaii and its tradition of providing quality educational programming,” said Tyler Tokioka, President of the Island Insurance Foundation. “Their new facility will enable PBS Hawaii to enhance its content and showcase the stories that make Hawaii such a special place.”

 

“Island Insurance is a company known for its deep and abiding commitment to Hawaii and what is best about us,” said Robbie Alm, PBS Hawaii Board Chair. “To have them support us is very, very special.”
