The Hawaii Community Foundation is now accepting proposals for its 2010 Ka Papa O Kakuhihewa Fund.

Any nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, school, unit of government or neighborhood group is eligible to apply for the grant as long as the program/project promotes resource conservation to benefit communities on the Leeward coast. (To apply for a grant of more than $5,000, groups must be a tax-exempt or have a fiscal sponsor.)
