Our NHO

The Hawaii Pacific Foundation for Soft Power Solutions

Our NHO Parent Company

The Hawaii Pacific Foundation for Soft Power Solutions (HPFSPS) is a Native Hawaiian Organization (NHO) incorporated in the State of Hawaii.  It is a non-profit public charity under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  This makes Soft Power Solutions, LLC an NHO owned SBA 8(a) firm offering significant contracting efficiencies, defined by law and regulation, to help Department of Defense (DoD) agencies resolve urgent and dynamic requirements.

SPS disperses its profits to the NHO who, in turn, supports and funds community efforts. For HPFSPS, those efforts are Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) youth education programs, societal enhancement technologies, and soft power outreach.   In many cases, the NHO's activities provide mutual benefit to SPS's government or commercial customers as well as community stakeholders by enhancing common goals and missions. For instance, the NHO recently provided funds to Hawaii's National Guard Youth Challenge Academy STEM program which also enhances the U.S. National Guard overall community resilience goals.  It is a collaborative way of giving back.
