Some of our Programs

Keiki Summer Program

3-week summer “Steps to Kindergarten” program to prepare children for the transition to kindergarten with the goal of exciting children about education and increasing their receptivity to school from the first day and beyond.

Holly J. Stevenson Arts Grants

Eia Hawaii Fund supports artists in Hawaii working in the fields of music, theater, and the visual arts. With a specific focus on native Hawaiians and women, in recognition that their work is still under-represented in mainstream culture. Eia Hawaii Fund will provide both direct awards to artists and grants to arts organizations for their support of artists.

Historical Site Preservation

Preservation effort aimed at historic buildings, cultural objects, and communities and sites integral to the history of Hawaiʻi and at risk of deterioration, while promoting these landmarks for their cultural and architectural significance to the Hawaiian land and cityscapes. With over 90 historical sites still listed as “Endangered Historical Places,” Hawai’i is at great risk of losing substantial elements of its history.

Coastal & Oceanic Education Program

Educating the public on marine debris and other pressing environmental issues. The program will deliver educational presentations to schools, community groups, businesses and organizations around Hawai‘i that bring to light the effects of rubbish on our marine environment and motivate communities to work on simple solutions to address it.
