Hawaii People’s Fund
What future do you want for Hawaii in the coming generations? Hawaii People’s Fund is an active partnership of people who want social change and can make it happen! We focus on a just, equitable and sustainable society.
Established in 1972, this community-based public foundation supports and encourages work at the grassroots level for social justice and progressive change. Hawaii People’s Fund raises money from people who care about a better future.
Donations are invested in grants to local community organizations working for a better future.
Decades ago, the activists of Save Sandy Beach Association, Protect Kaho’olawe ‘Ohana and People Against Chinatown Evictions led successful campaigns helped in part with grants from Hawaii People’s Fund. More recently, Hawaii People’s Fund grants have funded board training for Molokai Habitat for Humanity, tenant organizing to build a playground at Mayor Wright’s housing, a free public movie series in Hilo and support for mental health consumer-advocates on Maui.
Our grant-making committee reviews proposals twice a year. Decisions for spring grants will be made in April. How much we can distribute depends on individual contributions.
You can create change! Learn more at ChangeNotCharity.org - an interactive Web site with a community calendar of events, videos, photos and dozens of links to our many grantees. Sign up for our newsletter and be inspired by the work of amazing groups on every island.
In 2009 Hawaii People’s Fund facilitated more than $130,000 in grant awards throughout the Islands. Online donations are easy, secure and greatly appreciated. Any size donation is your investment in a better Hawaii for all of us.
