Native Hawaiian Philanthropy

A Native Hawaiian Philanthropy Serving Organization

Native Hawaiian Philanthropy is an organization dedicated to improving the socio-economic conditions of native Hawaiians. NHPʻs approach to this is through racial and social justice advocacy, bridging native Hawaiian organizations to the philanthropic sector, and develop long-term funding opportunities for NHP partners.

Mission Statement

A) Native Hawaiian Philanthropy (NHP) will empower native Hawaiian communities with the resources and support to improve the socio-economic conditions of NHO (Native Hawaiian Organizations) and our lāhui.

B) Increase active participation, engagement and understanding of native Hawaiian and Hawaii BIPOC communities with philanthropic funders and organizations.​

C) Support culturally-grounded projects and organizations that help to promote and perpetuate Hawaiian culture, practices, health and well-being, and inherent rights.​

D) Programs under NHP: 

Na Mahiʻai o Maui (The Farmers of Maui): partnerships with Maui farmers and farming/agriculture nonprofits to help build capacity and provide support to increase food production and community.


Moʻolelo: Hawaiian Storytelling:  program to help develop screenwriting & music video productions to empower native Hawaiians to write their own stories about Hawaiian history, culture and community.

ʻŌlelo Noʻeau (Hawaiian Proverb):

No task is too big when done together by all.
