The Grove Farm Foundation has been giving back to the Kauai community for the last 20 years.  Incorporated as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, the Grove Farm Foundation has been a long standing charitable contributor to numerous Kaua'i-centric organizations.

The Grove Farm Foundation is focused on building communities through leadership; promoting employee volunteerism; supporting educational enrichment opportunities; enhancing and protecting the environment; assisting health and human service projects; and creating economic opportunities for Kaua'i's sustainable future.  Some of the foundation's notable year round contributions include the Grove Farm Scholarship Program and the Employee Volunteer Grants Program.

Grove Farm Scholarship Program

Our Grove Farm Scholars have demonstrated excellence in community service, citizenship, academic accomplishments and quality of character.  The Grove Farm Foundation's Scholarship Program is one of the largest scholarships within the State of Hawaii.  Focused solely on Kauai students, this merit-based scholarship is offered to high school seniors who will be attending a four year university or college.  Each year, we award three scholarships, each valued at up to $20,000.  Since the program's inception, Grove Farm has committed over $410,000 in scholarship monies.

Applicants must graduate from one of Kauai's three public high schools (Kapaa High, Kauai High or Waimea High).  Students interested in applying can download the Grove Farm Scholorship's criteria and application in the links below, but are encouraged to contact their high school counseling offices for additional information.  The application deadline for the class of 2017 was February 28, 2017.  Please be aware that all applications must be fully completed in order to be reviewed.  Applications for the class of 2018 will added at a later date.

Employee Volunteer Grants Program

Grove Farm has established an Employee Volunteer Grants Program to encourage employees to support Kaua'i communities through the gift of valuable volunteer service. By personally investing themselves to further the cause of local non-profit organizations, Grove Farm employees will be able to directly impact and positively influence Kaua'i's future.

An employee who completes 25 hours of volunteer service with a certified organization of his/her choice in a calendar year is eligible to apply for a $500 unrestricted grant from the Grove Farm Foundation.  Two of these $500 grants are available for each emplyeee each year.

Team-of-the-Week & Play-of-the-Game

Organized sports encourage teamwork, perseverance, sportsmanship and so much more.  Grove Farm is proud to honor the legacy of Kauai’s outstanding student athletes.

In 2009, Grove Farm introduced the “Team-of-the-Week” award, which recognizes outstanding teams throughout the Kauai Interscholastic Federation (“KIF”), and has since added the Grove Farm “Play-of-the-Game.”

During each week of competition, an exceptional team’s performance and a game-changing play is honored and highlighted.  Each winner’s respective athletic departments receive a $50 donation from the Grove Farm Foundation.  Currently, between Grove Farm’s “Team-of-the-Week” and "Play-of-the-Game," roughly $4,000 is donated each year.  Since 2009, the Grove Farm Foundation has donated over $20,000.
