Hawaiian History

During Eia Hawaii Fund’s first development phase, we will focus our resources and funds on working in partnership with preselected registered nonprofit organizations based in Hawai‘i in developing, expanding and improving their own ongoing programs.

This strategy will allow Eia Hawaii Fund to gain first-hand knowledge and experience in key specific public oriented programs. During our second development phase, Eia Hawaii Fund will launch its own programs while involving our partnered nonprofits.

All partnered nonprofits must maintain their 501(c)3 registered nonprofit organization status for the duration of the partnership with Eia Hawaii Fund in order to receive funding.

The holistic approach to collaborating with existing non-profits while mutually sharing best practices and organizational innovations will make Eia Hawaii Fund a critical component of the nonprofit landscape in Hawai‘i. In the true spirit of collaboration, we are confident that EHF’s financial contributions would further our exempt purposes.
