Mission

The mission of  Women’s Fund of Hawai`i is to support innovative, grassroots programs that empower women and girls in Hawai`i.

We believe that when women thrive, communities prosper.

WFH will make grants to organizations or programs that:

  • Help the most vulnerable women and girls realize their potential.
  • Promote women’s financial security and girls’ strengths and leadership.
  • Address the factors that stand the way of women’s success, including violence, adolescent pregnancy, low self-esteem, physical and mental health problems, substance abuse, prostitution, incarceration, immigrant status, homophobia, inadequate childcare, sports inequities, reproductive rights, poverty, disabilities and racism.
  • Build on the gifts, strengths and assets of women and girls and promote their well-being.
