Grant Application Instructions

HWLF has two windows of opportunity for grant applications throughout the calendar year. Grants are funded with the proceeds of the previous year’s fundraiser. Priority is given to applicants with projects that benefit women and children in Hawaii. Neighbor island applications are encouraged.

In general, grants are considered in May and November. Dates can vary. The current grant period deadlines for the year are listed below.

The current grant application is also available below. Detailed instructions are provided on that form. Please note that the preferred submission method is via email.
