About this funder:



Welcome to the online community of the Fred Baldwin Memorial Foundation. The Trustees are proud to serve the legacy of Emily Alexander Baldwin and Henry Perrine Baldwin, and to honor the memory of their son, Fred Baldwin. As we celebrate over a century of service to the people of Maui, we invite you to explore the accomplishments of our grantees and the important work they carry on today.

The Fred Baldwin Memorial Foundation believes that supporting the people of Maui County and their environment is important, not just because of the impact on the community but because it reflects and perpetuates the shared values of our family and founders. 

The Foundation’s Areas of Greatest Interest

  • We support programs and projects that benefit the people of Maui County.
  • We support organizations and programs for whom our modest grants will have the greatest impact.
  • Evaluations are based on community need, quality of leadership, financial accountability, organizational stability and the projected cost of the program in relation to its benefits.
  • We support human services, housing and health organizations that provide a safety net of services for those most vulnerable in our community.
  • We support youth and educational organizations which create a robust learning environment.
  • We support arts and culture in our community through funding of performances, exhibits, equipment, and facilities.
  • We support environmental organizations designed to improve and preserve our natural resources.
  • We support historical and heritage organizations dedicated to historical documentation and cultural awareness.
