About The Turtle Bay Foundation

The Turtle Bay Foundation was established in 2012 to enrich Oahu’s North Shore through environmental, educational and cultural opportunities. The Foundation oversees the numerous contributions of Turtle Bay Resort to Oahu charities, acting as a partner in the community and supporting the resort’s mission of making one of the world’s last great places even better.


We are currently accepting 2017 Grant & Scholarship applications.  The application must be hand delivered or postmarked to the Turtle Bay Development Office by 3 p.m. on October 13, 2017.

Marking the Foundation’s largest group of awardees and highest total of financial giving, all of which will help support the future of North Shore communities, families and residents.

Altogether, 96 community organizations and 66 students were recognized during the Foundation’s fourth annual awards dinner at Turtle Bay Resort.                            

Building on its commitment to supporting the North Shore community, the Foundation more than doubled the number of awardees (108%) and increased its financial support by 22% compared to 2015. In the short time since 2013 when the Foundation began awarding grants and scholarships, nearly $400,000 has been presented to North Shore and Ko‘olauloa recipients. “The future of Ko‘olauloa and the North Shore is important to us all at Turtle Bay Resort. We’re truly honored to give back to our community and help support these deserving recipients in fulfilling their future goals,” said Danna Holck, a Foundation Board Member, and Vice President and General Manager of Turtle Bay Resort.

The 96 nonprofit organizations (see list below) receiving grants and support are making a significant impact in North Shore communities in the following five areas:

  • Education or Job Training
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Hawaiian Cultural Preservation
  • Health Care
  • Sports or Recreation

 The 66 students earning college scholarships (see list below) were selected based on a combination of criteria, including academic performance, GPA and/or ACT/SAT test scores, extracurricular activities and community involvement.



The Turtle Bay Foundation is supported by fundraising events such as the North Shore Turkey Trot, a 5K walk/run in November as well as future memberships and grants.
