WAILUKU — The Aina Nalu Charitable Fund recently awarded grants to two organizations that serve the Lahaina area.

The Lahaina Intermediate School Educational Foundation received $2,500 for the Lahaina Complex After School Enrichment Tutor Project, and the Maui Food Bank received $1,000 specifically for the Lahaina community.

The Aina Nalu Charitable Fund was established with the Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) in 2005 to benefit the Lahaina community when Aina Nalu, a resort condominium property on Wainee Street, was remodeled.

For more information on the fund, contact Ginger Gannon at ggannon@hcf-hawaii.org or Kathleen Buenger at kbuenger@hcf-hawaii.org in HCF’s Maui office.

With more than 90 years of community service, the Hawaii Community Foundation has become the leading philanthropic institution in the state.

With a presence stretching across all the islands and a reach covering a broad array of fields, HCF works with individuals, families, foundations, businesses and organizations to transform lives and improve communities.

Since 2000, the foundation has provided more than $160 million in grants and contracts throughout Hawaii.
