Application Guidelines

The Pacific Quest Foundation supports local, non-profit community groups and activities and encourages Pacific Quest employees to become actively involved in the community. Because the Pacific Quest (PQ) Foundation contributes funds to selected non-profit organizations, we have developed a process and guidelines to help evaluate requests for support and contributions. We meet once each month to review and evaluate requests for donations. To allow adequate time for consideration, requests should be received at least ninety (90) days before the actual need for funding.

Requests will be considered from Hawai’i island based non-profit organizations in four general categories:

  • Community or public service
  • Environmental issues
  • Health and education
  • Youth and senior citizens

Please note that eligible organizations must be non-profit and designated as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Requests for support will not be considered from individuals, religious or political groups, or groups based outside Hawai’i Island.

Pacific Quest Foundation is accepting applications.
