Community Kokua

The Hawaiian word kokua means “help” or “support”, and it’s one of Monsanto’s core values to support the communities in which our employees live and work. Throughout the years, Monsanto Hawaii has given grants and volunteered manpower for numerous educational, environmental, community and humanitarian endeavors including beautifying parks, protecting natural watersheds, raising funds for public schools and charitable organizations, donating to human service agencies, contributing to disaster relief efforts, sponsoring scholarships and educational programs, supporting the arts, judging science fairs and helping out at numerous community events.

Some of the non-profits that Monsanto Hawaii has supported include: Aloha United Way, district and state science fairs, Filipino Community Center, Hawaii Red Cross, the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, University of Hawaii, West Maui Mountain Watershed Partnership, Kamaole Point Park, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Maui, Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity, Hale Makua, Blood Bank of Hawaii, Haleakala National Park, Maui Youth & Family Services, Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii, Hawaii State Farm Fair, county farm fairs and Ag in the Classroom.
