Our Schools

Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation works with public, charter, and private schools throughout Hawaiʻi. Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundationʻs Field Trip Grants and Mini-Grants are available to Hawaiʻi schools state-wide and the grant application period runs from July 1st through March 1st. We encourage educators to apply!

Our ʻĀINA In Schools, Plastic Free Hawaiʻi, and 3R's School Recycling programs focus on schools on Oʻahu, however there are many resources, curricula, workshops and trainings available for students and educators everywhere. We encourage educators to subscribe to our Hawaiʻi Educators Mailing List for updates and opportunities.

Here is a snapshot of the schools that have received Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation support and have participated in our programs.
