Hale Kipa, a Hawaii nonprofit youth services organization, is pleased to announce that it has recently received $25,000 from the Matson Foundation.
The grant supports Hale Kipa’s capital campaign to build a best-in-class complex on 4.26 acres located on Old Fort Weaver Road in Ewa that will serve as the agency’s headquarters. This location will consolidate Hale Kipa’s programs and operations to improve service quality, reduce costs and build a sense of place in West Oahu.
Through the generous support of individual donors, businesses and organizations, as well as the State of Hawaii, Hale Kipa has raised more than $6 million in funds and committed support to build the $11.05 million complex. The LEED-certified design includes residential shelters, a service center and multipurpose education administration building, and is projected to generate operating cost savings of at least $100,000 per year.
“This generous grant support from Matson, which has a long history of community involvement, brings us closer to our goal of building a coordinated, community-based campus that will elevate our ability to improve the lives of Hawaii’s youth for decades to come,” said Punky Pletan-Cross, CEO of Hale Kipa.
