Ho'omau Foundation

is a  501 (c) (3) tax-exempt non-profit focused on the success and development of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide scholarships, mentorship, and networking opportunities to Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) students who are active in the NHPI community. By combining the support for academic success and perpetuation of our culture, the foundation will help recipients succeed in their endeavors while maintaining and growing their cultural ties and identity.

How We'll Get it done

We'll grant scholarships to eligible recipients, assign each recipient a mentor to help with the transition to college, and introduce them to a growing network community to last a lifetime. By nurturing and reinforcing cultural identity while supporting academic and professional success, Ho’omau will serve, not only the recipients themselves but also the larger NHPI community that is underrepresented in most lucrative and prestigious fields. 

How You can Help

Your donation counts. Each Recipient can receive up to $2,500 recurring scholarship while they are attending college.  As a donor, you will electronically meet the scholars and follow their journey and success through our newsletters and videos. 

Contact us directly if you would like to donate your stock options or restricted stock units.

Contact your employer to see if they have a matching program and double your contribution!  

Ambassadors provide great leadership to our scholars. 

Your donation is a 100% tax write off

We earned a 2022 Silver Seal of Transparency! Learn more about our organization’s impact through our #NonprofitProfile on @CandidDotOrg: https://www.guidestar.org/profile/84-4852346
