Subaru Hawaiʻi’s Tools for Schools Program Offers $25,000 to Support Local Educators

August 1, 2023

HONOLULU – Subaru Hawaiʻi today announced the launch of its Tools for Schools program with a $25,000 pledge to fund project requests from public and public charter school teachers throughout Hawaiʻi. The initiative is in support of local educators and students as part of Subaru Hawaiʻi’s Love Promise focused on education and learning.

From August 1 through August 31, 2023, local educators can request funding for project resources like supplies, technology, and instructional materials. Subaru Hawaiʻi has partnered with DonorsChoose, an online nonprofit that allows teachers to submit requests for project supplies.

To apply, teachers can go to to create a profile and request supplies needed for their project. Project requests must be submitted during the August 1-31 time period to be eligible for consideration.

“We know that many local educators are familiar with DonorsChoose already, so we hope this is exciting for our teachers. Over 7,000 Hawaiʻi teachers have posted projects since 2010,” said Lance Ichimura, senior vice president of Subaru Hawaiʻi. “Teachers are the foundation of our keiki’s education, and we hope the Tools for Schools program lessens their financial burden. Our goal is to support as many local educators as possible.”

Projects will be reviewed and selected by Subaru Hawaiʻi by September 30. Once funded, DonorsChoose will order the items requested and ship them directly to the teachers. Subaru Hawaiʻi aims to fund projects that reach students across the State, in both rural and urban communities.
