Partnering to Protect Our Coasts

Running time:


If we malama (care for) our resources, the community will thrive.


The clogged auwai kai (ocean channel) blocking the Loko Ea fish pond in Haleiwa from draining and receiving new salt water was severely altering the ecosystem of the ancient pond – an important waterway that had once produced native species of fish for the North Shore community. When the call was put out for volunteers to kokua (help) on a recent Saturday morning, more than 80 people showed up, ready to work. “Each time they pulled out a thick patch of California grass, you could hear a victory cheer,” recalls Jessica Casson, executive coordinator for Malama Loko Ea. “They cleared four to five tons of invasive vegetation and sand accumulations and the auwai kai is flowing once again.” There must have been a lot of cheering that day.

The project is a prime example of the Community Restoration Partnership (CRP), a unique funding partnership of government agencies, private foundations and donors who recognize that collaborating with each other and involving community leaders can have a significant impact on an important problem. The Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) handles the grantmaking for partners who currently include the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, the Weissman Family Foundation, and the Hawaii Tourism Authority. The CRP participates in selecting worthy projects that are literally changing the face of Hawaii’s coastlines … so vital to the well-being of local communities.

“We commend community groups who are taking responsibility in their own backyards, and putting in countless hours to protect our most treasured sites,” explains Josh Stanbro, Program Director – Environment & Sustainability at HCF. “It’s more important than ever to support community-led organizations doing on-the-ground restoration projects.”

So far, the CRP has provided more than $1.9 million to community projects in over 30 locations across the island chain. Now that’s something worth cheering about.

Community Restoration Partnership grants, totaling more than $1.9 million, have made a direct and powerful impact on Hawaii’s coastal areas:

  • Removed 93 tons of invasive species and 80 acres of non-native vegetation
  • Installed 56 acres of sediment retention systems, preventing 183 tons of sediment from damaging fragile marine environments
  • Improved or restored 30 acres of streams and enhanced 130 acres of fisheries
  • Trained 21,000 volunteers, who invested 91,000 hours in restoration projects

HCF’s Environment & Sustainability Program, including CRP, awarded over $4 million in 2013 to create cleaner, greener and more self-sufficient island communities.

The Gift of Water

Running time:


Knowing you have made a great difference in someone’s life is one of the most rewarding feelings I’ve ever felt.


The only kind of thirst being quenched at Paia Elementary School was a thirst for learning, because its water fountains were broken and the aging school had no water filtration system. For a while, the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) stepped in, and with help from the Kent & Polli Smith Family Fund, would purchase jugs of water and have them delivered to classrooms. But, as Kent Smith saw it, “An onsite filtration and purification system would give the students easy access to clean water and the PTSA could then focus on supporting other needs.” He got to work collaborating with the PTSA and the Department of Education to set up and fund a reverse osmosis system in the cafeteria – enabling the school to bottle its own purified water.

Finding ways to help, as they did at Paia Elementary, is characteristic of Kent and Polli Smith, and an attribute they most closely associate with their son, Ian, who died tragically in a snowboarding accident in 2004. “Giving helps us deal with his passing,” Kent explains. Through a family fund on which daughter Tiffany and granddaughter Ali now serve as advisors, the Smith’s generosity has helped many.

Among them are the 350 kindergarten through fifth grade students at Paia Elementary who now understand how water gets filtered and why it is so much healthier to drink than soda. The children are noticeably excited about filling up their water bottles from the jug that sits in each of their classrooms and, as fourth grader Luka has noticed, “Some of my classmates drink three bottles a day!”

With more than 6,000 nonprofits in Hawaii, HCF helps individuals and families create a plan that matches their passions, fits their charitable goals, and guides future generations to carry on the legacy.

In the process of helping more than 100 organizations, Kent and Polli Smith have created a multi-generational legacy that has changed the lives of many on Maui … including their own.

Inspiring Future Generations

You’re never too young to show your appreciation for people who helped you get to where you are.


While growing up on Kauai, Sara Miura didn’t plan on joining her family’s business. She went away to college and majored in elementary education, but soon realized that her calling was closer to home. And she recognized something else about herself: “I knew that my future was going to include philanthropy; I just didn’t know how.”

Today, the 32-year-old is director of sales and marketing at Deja Vu Surf Hawaii, an outgrowth of the M. Miura store that Sara’s great-great-grandfather started as a candy shop in Kapaa in 1909. She is also the creator of the Rise Up Scholarship Fund, established to benefit Kauai students pursuing college, especially those whose parents are divorced.

Understanding Sara’s philanthropic goals, the Hawaii Community Foundation was able to provide the support she needed. “HCF made it so easy. They helped me bring my vision to fruition and taught me that the power of a gift is not affected by its amount.”

Sara was so intent to get the fund off to a strong start and to assist more than one student, she took on a part-time job as a server in a Japanese restaurant in addition to working full-time. Thanks to her perseverance and vision, two graduates of Kauai High School are getting support to pursue their academic dreams.

“I’m excited to see what contributions they make during their lives,” said Sara, who is as inspired by the students as they, and all of us, are by her.

Graduate of Creighton University and now pursuing a doctorate in Physical Therapy, scholarship recipient Kendra Kawamura reflects on her journey: “I knew I had to leave the beautiful island of Kauai to pursue this career. Receiving support from Sara inspired me to strengthen my work ethic and inspire others who come from non-traditional families.”

Each year, HCF gives out$4 MILLIONin scholarships to more than 1,600 students, making the program the third largest private provider of scholarships in the state.

Now in her first year at the University of Colorado Denver, where she is majoring in biology and planning to pursue medical school, Tia Morishige (L) had the chance to meet and thank Sara Miura (R) at a donor event in Lihue. “I wouldn’t have known from looking at her that she, too, had been through rough times,” said Tia. The donation toward Tia’s education is only part of the gift’s benefit; “I saw what Sara did and I’d like to do that someday.”

The Gift of Learning

Running time:


I love to see the lightbulb go on – whether in the minds of fellow teachers or our students.


Tucked away in Nuuanu is a small campus abuzz with the sounds of preschool through eighth grade students in the ambitious and lively act of discovery. Sixth graders are building roller coasters out of pipe warmers to learn about kinetic energy. Kindergartners are reenacting the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Some middle school students are gardening, while others are tending to the worm bins, and still others are building computers from scratch.

It’s a newly typical week at Hongwanji Mission School, one of the 18 schools participating in the Schools of the Future (SOTF) initiative, designed to transform the learning experience for Hawaii’s students, teachers and administrators, and produce graduates who can thrive in the 21st century. “We wouldn’t be where we are without Schools of the Future,” says David Randall, Head of School. Only two years ago, electronic devices were banned from the school with the exception of the tech lab.

Now, there’s a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy that allows students from fourth grade on to carry their personal laptops, tablets and smartphones from home and use them for educational applications in the classroom. Second graders get a Google Drive account to be able to work collaboratively.

But as David Randall points out, and all of the SOTF participants know, “It’s not technology we’re teaching. What we’re really doing here is setting students up for success.” Project-based, student-centered learning encourages students to solve real-world problems, think critically, work in teams, and stay engaged. And, just as important to students like seventh grader Margaux, “Hands-on is a lot more fun. You don’t just sit and listen, you do it!”

HCF partners with nonprofit, community and government leaders to design grantmaking initiatives and programs that generate long-term solutions for issues facing our community.

Now in its final year of a five-year, $5 million capacity-building initiative funded by the Hawaii Community Foundation and managed by the Hawaii Association for Independent Schools, Schools of the Future has made the following impacts:

  • More than 70% of teachers at funded schools changed their teaching methods and reported that students are more engaged, more collaborative, and have a better understanding of academic content
  • SOTF Professional Learning Communities reduced the isolation of teachers and increased collaboration
  • SOTF was profiled in a national research report commissioned by Grantmakers for Effective Learning and produced by New York University
  • SOTF teachers were invited to present their experiences at the International Society for Technology in Education conference

The more experiences you can have, the more open-minded you will be.


“I feel like I’m part of something bigger: something beyond school, beyond Hawaii.” That’s how 17-year-old Rei Kitagawa describes the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme she’s enrolled in at Henry J. Kaiser High School (Kaiser H.S.). Thanks to an award from an HCF donor advised fund, the junior will head to Australia this summer to attend the IB World Student Conference, where she’ll meet with peers from many countries to work on real global issues. “Excited and nervous” as she is about the upcoming trip, Rei is also thankful: “Someone I don’t know gave me an opportunity that will change my life.”

That someone is the late Peter Heinze who, with his wife Theresa – both world travelers and graduates of public schools – chose to support IB students enrolled at Kaiser H.S. “What a wonderful way for young people in Hawaii to develop a global outlook,” explained Theresa.

Kaiser H.S. is an authorized World School offering the IB curriculum in grades 9 through 12. “The IB curriculum is known for offering quality education for a better world, and it has really engaged our students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners,” said Brad Bogard, IB Middle Years Programme coordinator at Kaiser H.S.

Recognizing through the examples of Kaiser H.S. students that “even modest gifts can be meaningful,” Theresa Heinze keeps asking herself, “What’s next?” “What else can I do?” It seems the lives she has touched through charitable giving turn out to include her own.

For her project at the end of Kaiser’s IB Middle Years Programme, Celine Lum studied the widespread use of parabens in cosmetics and ultimately made her own lotion with all-natural ingredients. She describes the program as “an amazing opportunity to explore the different fields I’m interested in.” The award that Celine was granted from the Heinze’s fund paid for her IB fees for grades 11 and 12. But the gift was about more than money for her. “It felt like a reward for working so hard and motivated me to keep exploring.”

HCF helps more than1,000individuals, families and businesses make their philanthropic wishes come true.

The Elli Kupke Fund:
Honoring a Mother's Wish

When he was 16, Peter Heinze’s mother, Elli Kupke, fled with her two children from East Germany to West Germany, becoming a seamstress with a master’s degree. Fulfilling his mother’s dream for a better life, Peter ultimately earned a Ph.D. in chemistry and became President and COO for BASF Corporation and PPG Chemicals Group. The donor advised fund Peter and Theresa Heinze set up in Elli’s honor supports opportunities for people to expand their knowledge of the world.


We believe that philanthropy is a powerful force for good.

It can be a boost to individuals in a time of need, a catalyst for change, a spark for social innovation, and a lever for reform.

Moreover, philanthropy can be a powerful force that brings significant meaning to the givers and a legacy beyond their lifetimes.

A Message to Our Partners and Friends

As one of the very first community foundations in the country, we’ve had the privilege of carrying out the charitable wishes of individuals, families and businesses across Hawaii for 98 years.

And it truly is a privilege. 

We’re not only the stewards of more than 650 funds, we’re also the keepers of their stories. Behind each act of giving is a purpose, a passion, a promise that we work to understand and honor. 

The greatest contribution we can make–and the reason we’ve stayed relevant since 1916–is to maximize the impact of your gift. That means helping you invest wisely in projects, people and organizations that will, in turn, contribute to the well-being of this community. 

Whether it’s one donor investing in one student, or family members supporting a cause over generations, or a group of leaders pooling resources in the face of a large-scale community need … philanthropy is a powerful force for change.

And the change that philanthropy affects goes both ways. The lives not only of those who receive, but also of those who give, are altered as a result of philanthropy. From our unique vantage point, we get to see how giving is a gift to the giver, offering the deepest kind of satisfaction that comes from knowing you have made things better for one person, one family, one community. The power of philanthropy can be felt both within and beyond a person’s lifetime.

As we approach our 100th year, we are carrying on a long tradition of working with people who care about Hawaii, and finding inspiration in their stories to make our island home an even better place.

Our Approach

The Hawaii Community Foundation takes a strategic approach to identifying where our clients and partners can make the greatest impact for the people of Hawaii. Each one of the initiatives and partnerships we engage in starts by identifying the highest priorities for the community, establishing strategic goals for change, and charting a path for how activities will accomplish targeted objectives.


As a resource, a partner, a funder, or convener, HCF collaborates with leaders from nonprofits, government and the community to create durable, positive social change across the islands.

Fresh Water Initiative

The quantity and quality of fresh water in our islands directly impact a wide array of issues including marine health, local food production, native ecology, and the cost of living. HCF’s Fresh Water Initiative engages a diverse group of leaders to develop a Blueprint for Action to protect Hawaii’s long-term fresh water supply in the face of increasing demand, reduced rainfall and impacts from climate changes.

Strengthening Nonprofit Organizations

Recognizing the essential role nonprofit organizations play in the economy and health of our community, HCF is committed to strengthening nonprofits and their leadership through grants and training.

FLEX Grants

Launched in 2013, the FLEX Grants program is a partnership of multiple funds designed to provide high-performing nonprofits in Hawaii with a source of flexible, unrestricted support that enables organizations to prioritize their own needs and enhance their effectiveness. In its first round, FLEX awarded over $2.9 million to 176 nonprofit organizations that practiced good management and demonstrated high performance.

Hookele Awards

Established in 2002 in partnership with the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, the award recognizes outstanding leaders in Hawaii’s nonprofit sector.

In 2013, HCF recognized (pictured L-R) Carol K. Yotsuda, Garden Island Arts Council; Ken Zeri, Hospice Hawaii; and Nancy Aleck, The People’s Fund. Not pictured: M. Nalani Kaina, Legal Aid Society of Hawaii.
Executive Transitions/Strategic Restructuring

These grants support planning and decision-making processes in order to assist a nonprofit as it navigates organizational change–including the transition from one executive director to the next, the negotiation of a merger, or administrative consolidation by multiple nonprofits.


This initiative builds on the successful model of a previous funder collaborative that supported the Hawaii Community Stabilization Initiative, which leveraged $4 million in private dollars from 12 funders to help families and individuals access more than $23 million in services and benefits during the recent recession. Pathways to Resilient Communities is a $12 million initiative supported by 15 funders focused on helping vulnerable populations in three areas: at-risk middle school students, families on the brink of being without a home, and our aging population. The first program, Connecting for Success, launched in 2013. Housing ASAP launched in 2014 and the program to address Hawaii’s kūpuna is under development.

Connecting for Success

Connecting for Success awarded 15 grants to 10 public middle schools and their community partners. Over three years, grantees are developing practices that increase students’ connections to school, reaching approximately 1,500 high-need middle school students to improve their attendance and academic performance while reducing the likelihood that they will engage in risky behaviors.


In 2011, with the support of the Omidyar Ohana Fund, HCF formed a partnership with the State of Hawaii to transform how government does business with and for Hawaii’s citizens. This large-scale 12-year initiative assists in the effective, efficient and convenient delivery of programs and services to the public through business process transformation and information technology modernization.


Recognizing that some of Hawaii’s toughest challenges require wide-reaching solutions, and knowing that we can do more by working together than apart, HCF partners with other organizations to achieve greater leverage for addressing community needs.


Through collaborative residencies, artists and teachers co-plan ways to weave art into the public school curriculum and help make learning experiential. As a result, students gain greater access to arts education and teachers’ capacity to teach both the arts and the existing curriculum is increased.


The Hawaii Environmental Funders Group (EFG) is a network of philanthropic individuals and institutions engaged in active, substantial grantmaking in the Hawaiian Islands. Convened and organized by HCF, the EFG’s purpose is to foster collaboration between members and to steadily increase the amount of philanthropic support for environmental and sustainability efforts in Hawaii. Since its establishment in 2009, EFG’s collective giving has more than doubled from $4.9 million to $10.8 million.


HCF partners with the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) to administer two HTA funded grant programs. HTA’s Natural Resources Program and Kūkulu Ola: Living Hawaiian Culture Program fund projects within the community that advance the goals of preserving Hawaii’s natural resources and perpetuating Native Hawaiian culture.


The Hawaii Legislature created this fund in 1999 from a portion of the money awarded to the state as a result of the multi-million dollar settlement with the tobacco industry. Under a contract with the Hawaii State Department of Health, HCF administers community grants to support tobacco prevention and cessation, which includes the Hawaii Tobacco Quitline, advocacy efforts, program evaluations, and a statewide communications campaign.


In 2013, the Hawaii Children’s Trust Fund (HCTF) celebrated its 20th anniversary. Since its inception by the Hawaii Legislature in 1993, HCTF has been a public-private partnership with the Hawaii State Department of Health to support programs aimed at preventing child abuse and neglect through grants for direct services, community events, public awareness, and advocacy. Community programs are primarily supported by a generous gift from the C.N. Wodehouse Hawaii Children’s Trust Fund Trust.


Through this pooled fund, HCF, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, HTA, and the Weissman Family Foundation provided more than $1.9 million in direct grant support for habitat restoration projects led by local communities. The partnership has restored fishponds, stream banks, wetlands, and other sites at over 30 locations throughout the island chain.


This five-year, $5 million initiative is funded by HCF and managed by the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools. It is designed to support a cohort of independent schools in transforming their learning environments and teaching strategies to better prepare students for work and citizenship in the 21st century. Now in its final year, the initiative has captured national attention including being highlighted as a model project by the National Association of Independent Schools. The unique partnership also resulted in an annual Schools of the Future conference that has grown to over 1,000 educators from private and public schools.

2013: The Year In Review

The Hawaii Community Foundation distributed more than $43 million in grants and contracts into the community from over 650 funds established by individuals, families and businesses who care about making Hawaii a better place.

A total investment of $4.5 million to overhaul the state government’s business processes and technology infrastructure garnered $120 million in state funds appropriated toward the transformation.

Hawaii Youth Opportunities Initiative, helping youth transition from foster care to become successful adults, partnered with HCF, government agencies and youth board members to pass a law that extends voluntary care up to age 21.

The Fresh Water Initiative met its $1 million launch goal and is convening key leaders to develop a Blueprint for Action in 2014.

In its first round, FLEX awarded $2.9 million in unrestricted support to 176 high-performing nonprofits.

Through the Connecting for Success program, 15 grants supporting 10 middle schools and their partners will reach 1,500 at-risk students with services to help them stay in school.

Through HCF’s leadership and the support of nonprofits and community members, House Bill 430 was signed into law, eliminating the charitable deduction cap from the Hawaii income tax.

Fifteen funders contributed over $12 million for a three-year Pathways to Resilient Communities initiative to focus on vulnerable populations in Hawaii.

Charitable Funds

Hawaii Community Foundation offers a wide range of funds to provide maximum flexibility to meet the philanthropic goals of our clients and the needs of our community.

New funds in bold


***scholarships and community grants

Unrestricted Funds
These funds have the greatest potential to respond to new and emerging needs in our community. Donors give full discretion to Hawaii Community Foundation’s Board of Governors to authorize grants that provide the greatest impact.
Donor Advised Funds
These funds are charitable vehicles that allow donors maximum flexibility to recommend grants to benefit the community. Donors are free to focus on the rewards of giving while the Hawaii Community Foundation manages the administrative details.
Designated Funds
These funds were endowed by individuals and organizations to ensure that their charities of choice would continue. In each case, the contributor selected one or more nonprofit organizations to benefit from the grants for as long as the charities exist.
Field of Interest Funds
These funds are created by contributors who stipulate that grants be made in a particular field, or to benefit a certain group of people. This type of fund assures the flexibility to adjust to future changes. The organizations or charities serving that field may change, merge or cease to exist, yet the need may continue.
Scholarship Funds
Private foundations, individuals, businesses, and organizations create these funds to assist Hawaii residents in achieving their educational goals.
Contract Services
Hawaii Community Foundation partners with the following clients to support their community grantmaking
