Grants to Hawaii nonprofit organizations to benefit local communities in the areas of health, human services, community, religion, education, arts, culture, and the environment. Preference is given to projects and programs serving the Island of Kauai. Applications may be submitted for program, general operating, or general capital support.

For programming requests, support is provided for programs that better the lives of individuals and families in the state of Hawaii with preference to Kauai Island. General Operating grants are usually provided to organizations that have an established relationship with the Trust.

General Capital Grants are provided for small capital projects or equipment with total costs of less than $500,000; however at the discretion of the Trust, projects or purchases of certain values and scope may be treated as large capital projects and may not be eligible. These grants are provided for the purchase of equipment, renovations, and construction of buildings. Generally, the Trust prefers to be one of several contributors, expecting the organization to acquire needed funds from several sources to assure the project is completed at a specific time and/or in a timely manner.
