Native Hawaiian Philanthropyʻs goal is provide assistance to Native Hawaiian communities in Keanae, Maui and State-wide. We have partnered with 14 native Hawaiian organizations (NHO) that implement culturally-grounded projects and programs. Our mission is to help empower NHOʻs, communities and individuals through networking, support services and resources.
We are based in Keanae and expanded to an office in Waiohuli Homestead and work with Native Hawaiian organizations from Maui, Hawaii island, and Oahu.
