Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Field Trip Grants help bring students to outdoor sites where they can experience hands-on learning about Hawaiʻi’s environment, including beach cleanups and marine debris educational opportunities. 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 buying reusable utensils and trays for school cafeterias as well as hosting educational events (i.e. “Plastic Free Week”).
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.
