Nan Inc. Donates $160,000 To Support Hawaii’s Future Engineers
Patrick Shin, the owner of Nan Inc, has always wanted to support future engineers. This can be considered as a win-win for everyone.
In September 2020, the Oahu-based construction company Nan Inc donated $160,000 to fund the Nan, Inc. Scholarship in Engineering at the UH Mānoa College of Engineering.

Patrick Shin has donated millions of dollars to medical facilities as well. For example, according to Pacific Business News, they have donated a $1M gift to the Waianae health center. This gift was totally unexpected but very well received from the staff working in the health center.
Nan Inc has been doing these types of donations for over 5 years. In 2016, there is another article that says that they donated a check of $1 million to the Kapiolani Medical Center. This check was donated to help pay for the hospital’s expansion. The donation will be used to fund building a new auditorium and a new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
These are just some examples of the charities that have been done by Nan Inc and its owner Patrick Shin.
Nan Inc Owner Patrick Shin has started his own Nan Inc Volunteering Club
But there is more. Nan Inc even started their own ‘’Nan Inc Volunteering Club’’, where they help restore and fix things.
In February 2021, about 50 Nan Inc volunteers spent their Saturday morning working to help repair the Koko Crater Trail. A grassroots non-profit organization called the Kokonut Koalition is spearheading the effort to rebuild the former military tram line which has fallen into disrepair due to heavy use and erosion.
This is a very big deal, since a lot of these volunteers are experienced craft and tradesmen who know what they are doing. Other volunteers formed a human chain, and were passing buckets of gravel and large wooden beams up the mountain.
