The Foundation recently approved $2 million in Hawai’i-specific grants supporting the areas of Housing, Health, Jobs, Education, and Community Services.


Stable housing provides a foundation for individuals, children, and families to lead healthy and productive lives. Without housing, people are unable to focus on education, employment, health care, and meeting other basic needs.

Oahu, HI
$1,000,000 capital grant to support the construction of Puʻuhonua O Waianae Farm Village, a community-led development that will house people exiting homelessness in the rural community of Waianae. https://www.alohaliveshere.org/about


Good health is essential to help people move and remain out of poverty. Poor physical or mental health can prevent or complicate the pursuit of education, employment, and other opportunities for economic mobility.

The Food Basket
Hawai’i Island, HI
$1,000,000 capital grant to support the development of the Hawai’i Island Community Food Center and Food Bank, which will strengthen rural food systems and increase access to healthy food. https://www.hawaiifoodbasket.org/
