Ward Village Foundation: Investing in Hawai'i

On September 24, more than 100 people, including grant recipients and community members, gathered at the Ward Village Information Center Courtyard to celebrate the eight newest nonprofit recipients of Ward Village Foundation grants.

Under a warm Wednesday sun and rustling palm trees, the ceremony began with a blessing performed by Ka'anohi Kalekini. Katie Ka'anapu, director of community and retail marketing at Ward Village, welcomed the crowd and introduced the chairman of the Ward Village Foundation, David Striph, and the foundation's president, Nick Vanderboom, who discussed the foundation's past grant donations and shared their excitement in the newest round of recipients. After representatives from each organization were presented with lei and a hardy round of cheers from the audience, the crowds gathered in the courtyard to enjoy refreshments and celebrate the hard work of the organizations involved.

In this round of grants, the foundation awarded a total of $155,000 to local nonprofit organizations that help the community to thrive, focusing on three core initiatives: culture, community, and environment. Meet the grantees below.

YMCA of Honolulu

will receive $50,000 over two years. The money will be used for the organization's Youth and Government program, which teach youths about the workings of local government and support those who will one day become Hawai'i's leaders.

The Hawaii Youth Symphony

received $25,000 to assist with its Music in the Clubhouse program, which fosters children's love of music and art and provides music education to keiki who may not have access to such programs otherwise.

KCAA Preschool

received $25,000 for its new KCAA Muriel Preschool Family Engagement program. The program will, through literacy programs and parent workshops, encourage learning and parent and family involvement.

The Council of Native Hawaiian Advancement

received $15,000 for its 13th Annual Native Hawaiian Convention. The grant money will be used for stipends for participating local artists and a reception for the artists.

The Hawai'i Home Ownership Center

received $10,000 to continue educational courses that assist first-time homebuyers on their journeys to buying and owning their own homes.

The Hawai'i Theatre

received $10,000 to assist with the cost of theater ticket prices for more than 10,000 students from preschool through grade 12. The grant will also help with costs for materials that relate theater to the classroom and explore connections between the two.

The Ke Aloha Ho'okahi Preschool

received $10,000 toward its Renovation for Accreditation Project, which will allow for the continuation of its high-quality preschool education for local children in an excellent facility.

After School All-Stars

received $10,000 to assist with the costs of their afterschool programs. The program, held at 10 local middle schools, provides a safe environment for students and supports them in achieving their educational and personal goals.
