Our Programs

Hauʻoli Mau Loa Foundation currently provides funding to nonprofit organizations that fall into five program areas:

Environment, First Generation Partners, Hope for Kids, Housing Projects and Humanitarian Relief.

Our Current Programs


The Foundation’s mission includes promoting stewardship, preservation and protection of the natural environment. As a way of carrying out this mission internationally, we have partnered with Global Greengrants Fund, an organization that makes small grants to grassroots groups in developing regions around the globe for conservation efforts.

First Generation

Hau‘oli Mau Loa Foundation established funding relationships with six different organizations in Hawai‘i during the period before the Foundation was fully funded. The length of our relationship with these organizations varies from more than ten years to just a few years. Each of these partner organizations contributes, in very different ways, to the Foundation’s mission.

Hope for Kids

Hauʻoli Mau Loa Foundation established Hope for Kids to expand opportunities for children to build hope and a positive future. The initiative, which  convenes a learning cohort and provides multi-year funding to nonprofit partners in Hawaiʻi who are working with children in programs that provide quality ʻāina-based educational experiences, is now in its second phase.

Housing Projects

Building on the success of Hauʻoli Mau Loa Village, an affordable housing community on Kauaʻi, conceived of and funded by the Foundation, we are collaborating with the Hawaiʻi Island Community Development Corporation to develop a second housing project for Hawaiʻi Island families.

Humanitarian Relief

We provide funding for humanitarian relief to help prepare for or in response to natural and other emergencies and disasters, especially when other resources to respond are limited.
