We, at The Adobo Chronicles believe in the great work by small nonprofit organizations and the challenge they face in raising funds for their worthy projects. We know — we’ve been there.
In addition to the many organizations and projects we support, we also occasionally give out mini-grants of up to $1,000 to nonprofit organizations to help support their mission and programs involving the arts, culture, education, health, immigration, LGBT issues, equality and social justice.
We are pleased to announce the first recipients of our mini-grants. Please take the time to visit their web sites to learn more about the wonderful work that they do, and that hopefully, you too will consider giving your financial and other support to them.
OUR GRANTEES AS OF JUNE, 2014

GSA Hawaii is a state-wide network that provides support for Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) in Hawaii’s schools. GSAs are student clubs that work to improve school climate for all students, and promote acceptance, tolerance, and support.
Life Foundation, a local HIV/AIDS organization, launched GSA Hawaii in 2011 to provide advocacy and support to Hawaii’s lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth. We hope that GSA Hawaii will provide support to new and existing GSAs, and connect GSAs with each other and the larger LGBT community in Hawaii. ($1,000 mini-grant)
