Securing Funds to Save Places

Since 2002, Historic Hawai‘i Foundation has secured funding for dozens of brick-and-mortar preservation projects across the state. Historic places like the Hawaiian Mission Houses, Heeia Fishpond, Kaupo School and Hamakua Jodo Mission have all received grants with HHF’s assistance.

Your support helps ensure that historic properties are properly restored, retaining their original architectural integrity. Please help HHF continue its funding efforts. Support the Annual Fund today.

Educational Programs

HHF also organizes educational workshops, tours of historic places and other events to connect people with places. Your support is critical to make all of these efforts possible.

“I was so fascinated from what we learned on the tour and kept wondering why as someone who grew up here, why we never went on a field trip here as a kid in school.”
