At Kohala, we are dedicated to giving back to the community and those organizations which align to our values of helping people in need. We take our social responsibility to be a core aspect of our business, and what it means to be a responsible company in the 21st century. As such, we set aside funding for causes that we have identified as aligning to that vision.
Native Hawaiian Charities– Those charities which help out the Native Hawaiians are number one. This includes housing, land preservation, historic sites, and points of interest that are key to the history and preservation of the islands.
Community Causes– This includes food banks, public facilities, and community activities.
Educational- Scholarships, facilities, and foster/adoptive programs.
Historic Preservation– Sites not identified as specific to Native Hawaii, but includes buildings and land with historical significance in their respective community.
Eligible organizations must meet certain criteria to be considered:
We will announce funding opportunities at various times during the year. In order to apply, organizations and groups must register on our portal, which will be released in early 2019
We have started the planning of our own charity, which will be announced in 2019. This group is in the planning stages and we welcome qualified individuals to apply to be a board member to help shape our cause. You can learn more by visiting our page, Kohala House.
