Our mission is to support our Hawaii community by investing in arts and culture, human development, environmental conservation, and economic security, with a particular focus on programs that serve women, children, and kupuna.

We see our role as not just a donor, but as a partner in philanthropy.

We understand the challenges local nonprofits face and take a hands-on approach to help nonprofits strategically build capacity in order to create lasting change in our community.

Our application process takes each individual applicant into account.

Please take note of what to consider before applying and our application process.

Utilize This Offer

Eligibility Requirements & Restrictions:
1. Applicant must be a qualified Hawaii-based tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
2. Generally, only one request per organization will be considered in each calendar year.
3. The Foundation does not fund loans, endowments, lobbying, festivals, and similar one-time events; it does not purchase advertising, attendance at, or sponsorship of commercial events; it does not provide scholarships.

Please note that your submission does not guarantee selection. In an effort to level the playing field — in particular for organizations with great programs that lack grant writing capacity — we carefully review each submission against the foundation’s selection criteria and work closely with applicants to provide open and honest feedback. We believe this will ensure your best work is presented to the board.

Next Application Deadlines:
• April 22, 2021;

• April 21, 2022.
