East Hawaii Cultural Center
The East Hawai‘i Cultural Center (EHCC) provides an inclusive platform for the members of its community to express themselves. The EHCC faces a lack of funding, which prevents the EHCC from hiring one person to focus solely on grant writing; this limits the amount of grants they apply to. We identified the areas that the EHCC needed to improve upon in order to become more effective in applying for grants, and then learned about the grant application process. We then created a grant-writing toolkit, designed to be as user-friendly as possible while still containing all of the necessary documents to apply for various grants. We proved the effectiveness of the toolkit by providing a walkthrough to the board members, who expressed that they would begin to utilize it immediately.
