Aloha!

Aloha! Ananda Fund Hawaii was founded in 2013. We are a donor advised fund of Hawaii Community Foundation. We wanted to do something creative that would allow us to discover local nonprofits. So we decided to launch our fund by offering a grant competition. If you work at the community level, we hope you'll consider entering the contest.
