Fit Fund Grant 2018

The Hanalei Elementary School receives the first Fit Fund grant for 2018!

The Kauai North Shore Community Foundation created the Fit Fund to grant funds to organizations, events, and programs that enhance fitness, health, and wellness on the North Shore of Kauai. In 2018, the Foundation will donate a total of $10,000 in Fit Fund grants.

The Hanalei Elementary School will use its Fit Fund grant to fully install a fruit orchard on school grounds. The orchard harvests will provide fruit for the school’s Farm to School healthy snack program. Congratulations, Hanalei Elementary School!

A rainy afternoon was an auspicious sign for abundant harvests when the Foundation presented the $2,000 Fit Fund grant at a recent Hanalei Elementary School Garden Class.

In 2017, the Foundation also donated a total of $10,000 through the Fit Fund to five non-profit organizations. >>More

The Fit Fund is open for applications on an annual basis. To be considered for the grant, the organization must be classified by the IRS as a tax-exempt non-profit charity under section 501(c)(3), or structured as a public school or other public program.

Priority for grant consideration will be directed to organizations that have participated in, and/or supported the Foundation’s Ohana Fit Fest presented by Wilcox Health, and whose programs strongly enhance the health, wellness and/or fitness of the north shore community. The Kauai North Shore Community Foundation hosts the Ohana Fit Fest, which focuses on fun and fitness for all ages and features an obstacle course. Proceeds of the Ohana Fit Fest fund the Foundation’s Fit Fund. >>More on the 2017 Ohana Fit Fest presented by Wilcox Health.
