Kanu Hawaii

Kanu Hawaii provides tools and opportunities for people to connect with one another — to take action that builds more compassionate and resilient communities across Hawai’i.

Why We Invested

Kanu Hawaii is working to increase voter participation in Hawaii. To accomplish this, they are developing a network of stakeholders that share this goal, partnering with existing networks of like-minded organizations, and tying social issues across Hawaii to the need for better representation in government.

Through collaboration with their network of nonprofits, community groups, businesses, and other organizations, Kanu Hawaii will build a local civic movement to address problems ranging from climate change, natural disasters, cultural issues, and social challenges.
