Hawaii Community Foundation
Give to the Catalyst Fund

Full Color

The Catalyst Fund directly supports the work of Hawai‘i Community Foundation—which in turn allow us to meet the needs of our community.

By supporting our operations, you’re supporting HCF and our collective work to address the systemic inequities in our islands. We do this through the CHANGE framework, a data-driven tool to address key issues—from education to housing—that affect the ability of Hawai‘i’s people and our communities to thrive.

The Catalyst Fund, also allows our organization to lean in when disaster strikes. In 2020, HCF responded to the impacts of COVID-19 within days of the emergency declaration of a pandemic—which included food distributions for thousands of people who had just lost their jobs to financial support for those that needed help with rent and utilities. In 2018, the Catalyst Fund supported our staff to immediately respond when devastating floods hit the North Shore of Kaua‘i and again when the Kīlauea volcano erupted.

In short, gifts to the Catalyst Fund fuel the collective and magnify the power of our philanthropy.
