Caring for our ‘Ohana

Giving Back to the North Shore Community

Turtle Bay Resort is more than a place to come and relax, surf, and play. It’s an integral part of the Koʻolauloa and Oʻahu’s North Shore community. We started the Turtle Bay Foundation in 2012 to make this great place even better and have already supported our community with over $1,000,000. It’s about looking after our own ‘Ohana, supporting the communities of Koʻolauloa and Oʻahu. It’s about protecting our environment so these fragile wild lands and native species can thrive today and for future generations.

What We Do

Turtle Bay Foundation supports five important pillars within our community: Education and Job Training; Environmental Stewardship; Preservation of Historic or Cultural Sites; Health Care; Sports and Recreation

Corporate Philanthropy

One way we support the foundation is through gift-in-kind donations with gift certificates for room nights, dining at our award-winning restaurants, golfing on our championship course, or relaxing at our spa. This allows partners to auction off these gifts to raise money for charity.
