Welcome to the Foundation’s website. We appreciate your interest in the work of the Foundation and hope you find the information on this site useful to you.

Hauʻoli Mau Loa Foundation is a private grantmaking foundation established by Helga Glaesel-Hollenback who, in her words, “found great happiness on the islands of Hawaiʻi” and through her philanthropy sought “to return the generosity of the islands.”

The Foundation seeks to expand opportunities for those less fortunate, especially children, to find hope for their future and seeks to enhance stewardship, preservation and protection of the environment.

We do not currently accept unsolicited proposals.
