We Need Your Kokua

Support Hawaii’s public schools and educators with your gift to the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation.

The Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation (PSHF) understands educators may need someone to believe in them and their ideas. That's why we started the “Good Idea Grant” program to support Hawaii's public school teachers. Since 1990, we have provided over $5,000,000 of grants to public elementary, middle, and high school teachers statewide. Please partner with us to turn good ideas into opportunities for public school teachers.

About PSHF

The Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation is a community-based non-profit organization founded in 1986 and dedicated to strengthening the quality of public education in Hawaii by advancing innovation from within. Our programs and initiatives are designed to encourage those in public education to continually challenge themselves in pursuit of educational excellence. In addition, we help to equip students with the skills necessary to take on the challenges of an uncertain future.

Good Idea Grant Program

Applications for the 2022-2023 school year are now being accepted. Deadline: June 13, 2022. Awardees will be notified by July 25, 2022. The Foundation’s showcase for innovation, creativity, and educational excellence is the “Good Idea Grants” Program. The Good Idea Grants Program is designed to enhance innovation in the classroom and empower teachers to bring their good ideas to life. Mini-grants of up to $3,000 provide public school teachers with the needed financial resources not available through usual government channels.
