We Know Success Starts with a Good Idea and a Great Teacher

At the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation, we know sometimes you just need someone to believe in you and your ideas. That's why we started the "Good Idea" grant program to support Hawaii's public schools statewide. Since 1990, we have provided over $4,800,000 of grants to public elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the State of Hawaii. So partner with us to make your good idea a reality!
