Our Impact

As a Native Hawaiian Organization (NHO), the Kinaʻole Foundation is controlled by Native Hawaiians and its activities principally benefit Native Hawaiians.

The Purpose of the Foundation

The Kinaʻole Foundation is organized to educate, advance, and promote the economic development for the people of Hawaii with Native Hawaiians as the principal beneficiary through educational and business development activities and programs.

Giving Back

Through public and private sector partnerships we offer mentoring, training, incubation and other innovative activities specifically designed to access established programs of the federal government through its departments and agencies.

Supporting Hawaiian Veterans

One of the many programs offered by the Foundation to Native Hawaiians is the Veterans Entrepreneur Training Support (VETS) Program Workshop. We conduct these workshops across Hawaii to provide training that helps Veterans and Disabled Veterans become entrepreneurs.
