August 30 - September 12, 2021
Kauai’s community is very unique, demonstrating a strong sense of unity and heartfelt care for each other is endemic and instinctive to the people that call the Garden Island home. The pandemic of 2020 was a prime example of this.
Our community relies heavily on services provided by the organizations that benefit from the Charity Walk Event. Community support such as, all-day programs and additional distance learning assistance, providing food security through our island’s food banks and homeless outreach services through family services organizations. The passionate support for this event in the Kauai community is fueled by the knowledge that all funds we raise here will be used locally for the benefit of Kauai residents.
With admiration, I am proud to support such a cause.
Grant Applications for 2021 are now closed.
All grant funding must be used to fund programs in the County in which the funds were raised and utilized to benefit that community. An organization must apply separately to each county for funding to be used in that county.
Funds will not be granted for capital fund drives, purchase of tangible real property or personal property, or interest or reduction of deficits or loans.
501(c)3 non-profit organizations in the state of Hawaii are eligible to apply for Visitor Industry Charity Walk Grants. Grants will be considered on the basis of an organization’s community impact and may vary widely in scope and size. Grants are not a source of guaranteed continuous funding.22
