In 1910, as part of their lifelong commitment to philanthropy, Emily Alexander Baldwin and Henry Perrine Baldwin gave the Maui community of Hawaii a facility to provide housing for the elderly. They also created the Fred Baldwin Memorial Foundation to provide operating funds for the home. Both the home and the foundation were dedicated to the memory of their son, Fred Baldwin.
When the home closed during World War II, the foundation's assets were committed to a charitable grantmaking program that supports programs and projects serving Maui County, including those related to the arts, education, the environment, health, and human services. Typically, the foundation awards modest-size grants of up to $5,000, with occasional exceptions.
To be eligible, applicants must have 501(c)(3) status, or must apply through a fiscal sponsor with 501(c)(3) status.
