Financial Reporting

In 2022, Kākoʻo ʻŌiwi saw substantial financial growth, primarily driven by successful fundraising efforts, enhanced community support, and larger government grants. This financial influx significantly increased the organization’s revenue and cash reserves, enabling it to expand its programs and services effectively.

Key Areas of Program Growth:

1. Agricultural Initiatives:

    • The increased funding allowed Kākoʻo ʻŌiwi to expand its ahupua’a programs, including the restoration and cultivation of traditional Hawaiian crops.

2. Educational Outreach:

    • With additional financial resources, Kākoʻo ʻŌiwi expanded its educational initiatives, providing more workshops and training sessions focused on traditional farming practices, sustainability, and cultural preservation. This enabled the organization to engage a larger number of community members, particularly students and young adults.

3. Community Engagement:

    • The organization increased its community engagement efforts, organizing more events, volunteer opportunities, and cultural activities. These activities aimed to strengthen community ties and foster a deeper connection to Hawaiian cultural heritage and environmental stewardship.

4. Infrastructure Development:

    • Enhanced revenue allowed for the development and improvement of green infrastructure critical to program delivery. Investments were made in building and maintaining facilities, ensuring safe spaces to program activities and community gatherings.

5. Environmental Conservation:

    • The additional funds supported expanded environmental conservation projects, including the restoration of wetlands, lo’i and waterways. This not only benefited the local ecosystem but also provided cultural and educational opportunities for community members to learn about environmental management.

Our work is not done and with your continued support we look to continue to restore land through these programs.

On behalf of Kākoʻo ‘Ōiwi; mahalo for you support.

“This was the best experience ever! I’m beyond grateful to have had this experience and I would love to come back!”
