Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Field Trip Grants help bring students to outdoor sites where they can experience hands-on learning about Hawaiʻi’s environment. KHF offers financial assistance to Hawaiʻi public schools which otherwise could not afford to participate in environmental field trips.
Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Mini-Grants fund projects and teachers from Hawaiʻi schools to support the advancement of their environmental education goals and stewardship endeavors. Previous grantees have used KHF funds for garden supplies, eco-footprint workshops, vermicompost trainings, and more. One school has raised enough worms to start a commercial-scale vermicomposting bin for their campus food waste!
To streamline the application process and go paperless, applications for both the Field Trip and Mini-Grant programs are now being accepted online through Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation’s Grant Portal. Applications for the 2016-17 school year and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis now through March 1, 2017 for funding up to $1,000 per school for each grant program.
