Overview

The Guy Toyama Fund is a charitable fund established to honor the memory of Guy Hideo Toyama by giving scholarships and/or grants that help support the ideals that Guy felt important: sustainability, entrepreneurship, and volunteerism. The fund will provide grants and scholarships for students interested in sustainability, community service, Hawaii/Japan relations, or entrepreneurship. It may also fund projects in the areas of experimentation, focused innovation and high-impact opportunities in sustainability integration. The fund is intended to create positive outcomes for future generations through integrating disciplines such as renewable energy, local food production, and waste reduction.

Since Guy was a resident of Hawaii but a citizen of the world, the focus of the fund is on projects that positively impact Hawaii and Japan. The following are illustrative examples of the types of projects and scholarships likely to be supported by the Guy Toyama Fund:

Guy passed away on November 11, 2012 after finishing the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival Miracle Mile run. He was rushed to Kona Community Hospital and later airlifted to The Queens Medical Center on Oahu, but could not be saved.

Guy is greatly missed, but his passing prompted his friends and family to create the Guy Toyama Memorial Fund. Supporting the fund and its efforts will allow Guy’s passion, vision, and humble spirit to live forever and make the world a better place.
