Strategic Plan

The WAFF foundation received a grant from the Hawaii Community Foundation to put together a Strategic Plan for 2012 –2015. The purpose of this strategic plan was to guide our organization's growth. The mission, vision, and values were revised in 2012 and haven't changed to this day.
