Hawaiʻi Peopleʻs Fund supports, funds, and amplifies the work of Hawaiʻi-based organizations challenging systems of oppression.
community GIVING is community DOING
Hawaiʻi Peopleʻs Fund has helped to support, build capacity, and amplify the impact of grassroots social change movements in Hawaiʻi since 1972.
No other organization specifically addresses the needs of grassroots progressive movement building in Hawaiʻi. As the only intermediary organization in Hawaiʻi working with this constituency from a social justice perspective, we strive to be a model for progressive social change and a viable resource for a strong and enduring movement in the islands.
Hawai‘i People’s Fund supports passionate, grassroots community groups working for social justice in Hawai‘i. These groups are often considered too small, too new, or too controversial by traditional funding organizations. We are dedicated to the most creative, passionate, and radical visions of community, bravely navigating the intersections of indigeneity, environment, race, class, labor, gender, art, technology, mental health, incarceration, food, and other crucial issues we face.
