The David and Lura Lovell Foundation
NOTE: Letters of Interest may be submitted at any time, and we try to get back to you within 30 days.

Successful awardees typically receive the funds within 45 days of Board approval.
The Lovell Foundation
The Lovell Foundation grew from the passions and life experiences of founders David and Lura Lovell. Together they dealt with monumental challenges and opportunities – by connecting with others, crusading for change, creating success and experiencing peace and joy. Established in 1994, this family foundation continues to embrace causes close to their hearts. In its first 20 years, the foundation invested $11 million in 60 nonprofit organizations for local and national projects supporting people and programs that empower lives, provide opportunities, improve conditions and advance community. Today the foundation is propelled by the passions of the second and third generations of the Lovell family.
The Lovell Foundation envisions communities where mental health care is both barrier- and stigma-free as part of a broader approach to Integrative Health and Wellness. We prioritize programs and initiatives that aim to reduce the stigma of living with and seeking services for a mental health issue.
- We do not fund drug and alcohol treatment.
Integrative Health and Wellness
We envision communities where all people have access to integrative (also known as alternative or complementary) approaches to health care and wellness throughout the spectrum of life. We prioritize programs and initiatives that aim to broaden the awareness and use of best practice approaches in integrative health and wellness, especially those that reach underserved populations.
Youth Access to the Arts
We believe that experiencing the arts through education or participation contributes to the development of well-rounded individuals. We continue to support community-level programs, but prioritize programs and initiatives with the capacity to systematically improve youth access to arts.
We partner with organizations working to advance gender parity at a regional or national level only. We give priority to organizations that address gender barriers and aim to have an impact on gender parity in significant and measurable ways. While the majority of gender-based efforts are focused on inequities among girls and women, we will also consider initiatives for men and boys that promote overall gender parity.
- We do not fund community level projects that provide direct services to gender-specific groups.
Types of Grants
We define Initiatives as efforts that attempt to:
- address the root causes of an issue in one or more of our four Focus Areas, either through elimination of a problem or creation of a solution;
- alter a structure or a system so that it can better address the root causes of an issue; or
- transform an organization or group of organizations so they are better equipped to alter the structure of a system and/or address the root cause of a social issue,
- or some combination of the above.
Social Impact Media Grants
Social Impact Media (SIM) Grants are for creating and disseminating different forms of media: documentary film features, documentary film shorts, episodic documentary series, web series, multi-media projects for web, and trans media projects (Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, or other) designed specifically to make a social impact. They must either qualify as Initiative Grants themselves, for example, using a documentary film feature aligned with one of our four Focus Areas to make a sustainable impact on a particular social issue, change a system, or transform an organization; or they must be created in collaboration with and in support of an ongoing or proposed Initiative Grant, for example, broadly disseminating a multi-media project in support of education and outreach in a multi-partner initiative effort. These grants are extremely competitive and there are limited funds available annually.
SIM proposals are eligible for the following purposes and amounts:
- Development: A range of $10,000 to $30,000, with the possibility of an additional match of up to $20,000
- Production and Post-Production: A range of $25,000 to $100,000 (generally no match is recommended for this stage, although there will be exceptions)
- Distribution/Outreach: A range of $25,000 to $100,000, with the possibility of an additional match of up to $50,000

Awareness. Education. Prevention. These are three key tenets of Bayer Fund’s investments in health and wellness. With a focus on cancer and cardiovascular disease, we provide resources to organizations dedicated to educating and/or providing services to patients, caregivers and at-risk populations.
Health & Wellness Grants
Programs that Bayer Fund will support include those that focus on patients and their families needing assistance with issues to managing cardiovascular disease and cancer. This includes education, disease awareness, and supportive services for these diseases. In areas related to cardiovascular disease, priority (though not exclusivity) will be given to charitable organizations that focus on programs and support for the African American community due to the high incidence rate of disease in this population.
Giving in this category will focus on support services such as education, disease awareness, and general access to care (e.g., housing for families traveling for cancer or heart care).
All funding requests and budgets must be for program activities and expenses that start after funding decisions are made. All programs must be completed within one year of the start date, except in limited situations where longer term programs have been agreed upon. Grant award amounts vary, depending on the size of the community, the type of programming, and the reach of the organization.
The Joseph And Vera Long Foundation
NOTE: The Spring process is for larger grants ranging from $50,000 to $150,000 and in the Fall is for smaller grants ranging from $10,000 to $49,000.
We envision a society that preserves the natural resources of the world, creates opportunities for children and youth to thrive, provides adequate care for the afflicted and most vulnerable, and supports women. To pursue this vision, The Joseph & Vera Long Foundation contributes financial support to not-for-profit organizations involved in the communities of Northern California and Hawaii.
Our primary approach is to invest in organizations that are dedicated to strengthening and supporting the community and committed to the responsible and effective use of the Foundation's assets. The Foundation periodically approves large, multi-year strategic grants focused on achieving a well-defined impact. These grants are made at the discretion of the Board of Trustees and may not be solicited. The Foundation also makes responsive grants that aim to meet the needs of the community.
Programs or projects must closely align with our priorities in one of the four program areas we support:
- The Environment
- Youth in Nature
- Youth Arts
- Maternal Health
- Healthy Aging

Hawai'i Community Foundation
Theory of Change
The Kūpuna Aging in Place (KAP) Program for Elderly Services supports organizations that provide a range of supportive services including community-based support services, adult day care & adult day health, and caregiver support services for low- to moderate-income kūpuna (seniors) age 65 and older and their caregivers so that kūpuna in Hawaiʻi can age in place, for as long as it is in their best interest.
There are an estimated 282,567 kūpuna 65 years and older in Hawaiʻi making up 19.6% of the total population in the state according to the U.S. Census. By 2045, the population of kūpuna in Hawaiʻi 65 years and older will represent 24% of the population, as compared to only 8% in 1980. In addition, Hawaiʻi continues to have the highest life expectancy in the nation at over 80 years of age.
Many kūpuna in Hawaiʻi rely on informal or family caregivers. Data indicates that this trend continues to grow and for many caregivers this is a source of stress which can negatively impact workforce productivity and quality of life. There are approximately 157,000 family members in Hawaiʻi providing care for their loved ones throughout the year. The value of this unpaid care totals about $2.1 billion. In an AARP survey of Hawaiʻi voters aged 45 and older, about half said they were providing for or had provided care to an adult loved one. Sixty-three percent reported feelings of emotional stress and 51% struggled to balance their family and job responsibilities.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines aging in place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level." Aging in place benefits kūpuna, their families, and greater communities. The Stanford Center on longevity and the MetLife Mature Market Institute states that one of the key community characteristics that supports sustainable aging in place is “Community Supports & Services” including the availability of health care, supportive services, healthy food, and social integration. Supportive services include home and community-based services and caregiver support services.The pandemic reinforced the importance of “Community Supports & Services” for kūpuna and their caregivers. Organizations innovated to meet the needs of this high-risk population to address issues including food security, access to basic necessities, use of technology to access medical care and social opportunities, and transportation barriers. Kūpuna continue to experience challenges and support services are essential to maximize opportunities to age well, remain active, and enjoy quality lives while engaging in their communities, a goal of Hawaiʻi’s 2019-2023 State Plan on Aging.
Hawai‘i Community Foundation (HCF) has provided grants for elderly services for over 30 years through the Persons in Need (PIN) program, now known as the KAP program. Recognizing the rapid growth in the number of kūpuna and the dependence on caregivers, in 2011, HCF adopted a focus for its aging grants to “strengthen the safety net of family and informal care giving services for the elderly, with an emphasis on families and elderly of modest means.”
Through this Funding Opportunity, HCF seeks proposals from qualified 501(c)(3) public charities to provide:
- Community-based support services for low- to moderate-income kūpuna age 65 or older provided in kūpuna’s homes or at a center/facility.
- Tuition assistance for low- to moderate-income kūpuna age 65 or older to attend licensed adult day care or adult day health programs.
- Caregiver support services including education, support groups, and respite.
Hawai'i Community Foundation
The Community Grants Program provides project- or program-based funding to nonprofit organizations benefitting the communities and people of Hawai‘i. Specific community funds established at the Hawai‘i Community Foundation (HCF) support the Community Grants Program. Advisory committees will review proposals and make grant recommendations to support projects or programs that are most consistent with the purpose and priorities of each fund.
East Hawaii Fund
The purpose of this fund is to benefit the people and communities of East Hawai‘i, from Waipi‘o Valley\ to Waiohinu. The East Hawai‘i Fund especially welcomes applications that involve people and organizations from different sectors of the community who are working together to address an issue of concern to the community. Preference will be given to projects that address a community need in one or more of the following areas:
- Educational opportunities with an emphasis on early childhood, after school/out-of-school experiential opportunities for youth, and/or preparedness for education and career success
- Strengthening intergenerational relationships
- Economic sufficiency for self, family, and community
- Family-centered and integrative approaches to health care

- Recreational opportunities with an emphasis on family and/or intergenerational activities
West Hawaii Fund
The West Hawai‘i Fund was established for the benefit of the people and communities of West Hawaiʻi, from North Kohala to Ocean View Estates. The West Hawaiʻi Fund aims to support programs that address equitable and inclusive access to services, build resilience and connection between different sectors of the community, and strengthen the long-term capacity of individuals and organizations to become healthy, vibrant, and sustainable. Preference will be given to organizations based in West Hawai‘i.
Grants are generally awarded for one year and will usually not exceed $10,000.
Ms. Foundation For Women
Ms. Foundation for Women
The mission of the Ms. Foundation for Women is to build women’s collective power in the U.S. to advance equity and justice for all. We achieve our mission by investing in, and strengthening, the capacity of women-led movements to advance meaningful social, cultural and economic change in the lives of women. Ms. has six grantmaking initiatives, one of which is the Birth Justice Initiative.
Birth Justice Initiative
Our Birth Justice Initiative aims to:
- advance equitable birth outcomes and experiences;
- strengthen the capacity, organizational infrastructure, and financial stability of grassroots Black, Indigenous and women of color-led birth justice organizations; and
- expand the frame of birth justice to support intersectional movements and strategies that recognize the full spectrum of experiences and identities in birthing, parenting, and family building.
We believe that Black, Indigenous, and women of color (including trans women and non-binary people) are key experts and should be decision-makers in shaping policy and culture change around birth justice. By investing directly into organizations led by and for women and girls of color, we are ensuring that the movement to address racial based disparities in healthcare, including birth outcomes and experiences, is led by those who are impacted most. Strengthening the collective power of communities of color is critical to addressing the root causes of these disparities and advancing birth justice for all.
The U.S. has one of the highest maternal mortality rates of all developed nations and Black women die at three to four times the rate of white women in birth – one of the widest racial disparities in women’s health. Systemic racism, implicit bias, and anti-Blackness all contribute to the significant disparities in birth outcomes among Black, Indigenous and birthing people of color. Moreover, the spectrum of intersectional issues that comprise birth justice and the ability to have children and parent with dignity, are not only limited to the birth process.
As such, the Ms. Foundation’s Birth Justice Initiative invests in organizations who represent the full spectrum of birth experiences including–but not limited to–preconception health, mental health and wellness, infertility, abortion access and abortion care, comprehensive sex and sexuality education, non-racist culturally affirming and gender expansive healthcare, access to birth workers of color, access to lactation support and services, postpartum health and wellness, grief and loss care and support, and sexual assault prevention and survivor support services. Organizations supported collectively utilize a range of movement building strategies to advance birth justice—such as narrative change, policy and systems change, advocacy, leadership development, direct service among others. And finally, they work at the intersection of birth justice and other movements, such as disability justice, youth justice, LGBTQIA+ justice, environmental justice, economic justice, and criminal legal reform.
During this cycle, Ms. will provide one-time grants ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 to selected organizations not currently receiving funding from Ms.’ Birth Justice Initiative. The grant period will comprise two years.
