Hale Kipa is pleased to announce that it has recently received $40,000 from the Hawai‘i Community Foundation (HCF). The grant is from five charitable funds at HCF to support a variety of Hale Kipa programs:
• Ewa Beach Community Fund: $5,000 to support the Transitional Living Program’s work in Ewa Beach
• Annie Sinclair Knudsen Memorial Fund: $5,000 to support Kauai programs
• Marisla Fund: $10,000 to support Kauai programs
• Reverend Takie Okumura Family Fund: $10,000 to focus on the healthy development of youth
• Tai Up Yang Fund: $10,000 for the Hale Kipa Annual Fund
The funds are part of the Hawai‘i Community Foundation’s FLEX Grants program, which provides high-performing nonprofit organizations with unrestricted operating support. The grant was covered in The Garden Island newspaper in January.
This generous grant supports Hale Kipa’s ongoing operations, programs and services that provide essential assistance to Hawaii’s at-risk youth and their families. Hale Kipa is primarily dependent on government funding, which does not cover its true cost of services. Donations and grants like these help make up that difference.
