Molokai Grant Funding

Friendly Isle United Fund News Release

It’s that time of year again, when the Friendly Isle United Fund (FIUF) accepts grant applications from community projects, schools and organizations. While a 501(c)(3) IRS tax exemption is not necessary, projects requesting funds from FIUF must be nonprofit, and it must benefit the Molokai community. The deadline to apply for a grant is Wednesday, May 31. In order to be eligible for consideration, proposals must be submitted to the Molokai Community Service Council by 5 p.m. via e-mail, regular mail, or hand-delivery.

In 2011, FIUF distributed grants to 29 local nonprofit programs and schools. These programs touched the lives of virtually all of the island’s residents:

• 4-H Clover Lopers
• Akaula School
• Boy Scout Troop 57
• Hawaii Center for Independent Living
• Hui Home Pumehana
• Hui Makua Punana Leo O Molokai
