GrantWatch ID#: 179002
Applications for grants are accepted from qualified tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) charitable organizations in the State of Hawaii.
If the request for funding supports a program that involves school or classroom participation, the applying charity must provide a list of the schools that will be involved in the program along with a few letters of support from the schools’ principals or teachers who have either committed or are interested in the program.
The committee does not give to endowments, reserve purposes, or deficit financing, nor does it make grants to individuals.
Proposals must be postmarked by April 1.
Applicants will be notified in writing of the action taken on their requests.
If the request for funding supports a program that involves school or classroom participation, the applying charity must demonstrate school staff support and provide the Foundation with an approximate number of students that will be involved and/or benefiting from the program.
The Foundation receives more requests for assistance than its funds permit supporting. Because of the limited size of the Trust and limited income available for distribution, the general policy of the Distribution Committee has been to give fewer, but more meaningful grants, rather than spreading the income in smaller amounts to more organizations. However, normally, all applications are considered, and each is acted upon according to its current and projected relative merit, provided it is in keeping with the deed of trust.
