Getting Started with KHF Field Trip Grants

The Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports environmental education in the schools and communities of Hawaiʻi. Our Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Field Trip Grant Assistance Program helps bring students to outdoor sites where they can experience hands-on learning about Hawaiʻi’s environment. The Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation (KHF) offers financial assistance to Hawaiʻi schools which otherwise could not afford to participate in environmental field trips.
