Organizations in Hawaii that are classified by the IRS as 501(c)(3), tax exempt agencies, and not private foundations. Proposals submitted by government entities, such as public and charter schools, will not be considered. However, projects that include a public sector partner are encouraged, as it is recognized that public agencies have responsibilities in these areas and are important partners in developing early childhood programs, particularly at the system level. 

The Samuel N. & Mary Castle Foundation is committed to providing resources to improve the life of Hawaii’s children and families by improving the quality and quantity of early education. Their efforts are concentrated on creating greater social equality and opportunity through improving access to high quality pre-K education. Secondarily, the foundation provides limited support for independent K-12 education, the arts, health, historical and cultural projects.
