Community Commitment

The Cades Foundation—founded in 1991 by brothers Russell and Milton Cades—is the charitable arm of Cades Schutte LLP.

Separate from the firm’s continuing charitable giving, the Cades Foundation is a non-profit that supports our community by promoting advocacy, volunteerism, and funding support.

The Cades Foundation is the largest private funder of arts in Hawai‘i.

With a mission to support efforts that promote innovation in academics, medicine, and the arts, as well as the improvement of the legal profession and promotion of justice in Hawai‘i, the Foundation’s contributions support organizations that promote education, the well-being of children, the arts, and health and human services.
