Hawai’i People’s Fund

Hawai‘i People’s Fund is a publicly supported community fund established in 1972 to provide grants to progressive grassroots social change organizations working in Hawai‘i. We are a unique partnership of donors, activist grantmakers and grantees committed to positive social change and a more equitable distribution of wealth, resources and power. Hawai‘i People’s Fund assists groups considered too small, too new, or too controversial by traditional funding agencies.

Hawai‘i People’s Fund brings together those who want to invest in justice with those who are actively pursuing justice in a united vision for social change. Our philosophy of community-based strategic philanthropy offers a unique alternative to traditional charitable giving. Individuals who contribute to Hawai‘i People’s Fund are investing in our community’s future by supporting projects that seek out the root causes of social problems and pose new solutions.
