Mission Statement

The Ama OluKai Foundation honors those who preserve and celebrate the cultural heritage and Aloha spirit of Hawai‘i.

Grant Guidelines

Founded in 2014, the Ama OluKai Foundation is a private, non-profit 501 (c)(3) located in the State of Hawai‘i. The Foundation seeks partnerships with organizations that are also located in Hawai‘i. We look for groups who have an understanding of the Hawaiian culture. Preserving, protecting and celebrating the cultural heritage and Aloha spirit in Hawai‘i is the mission of the Ama OluKai Foundation.

We intend to provide grants to organizations participating directly with the community. 

The Ama OluKai Foundation targets programs that are directly designed to educate and serve Hawaiian communities. Our goal is to partner with organizations that promote the Hawaiian culture and heritage from its ancestral past to present day. We encourage those who benefit from our partnership to carry forward the tradition and spirit of giving for future generations. Educating non-endemic visitors to Hawaii about our aligned principles is also important.
