Pierre & Pam Omidyar
eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and his wife Pam are founders and sole sponsors of the Ulupono Initiative. Since returning to Hawaii as their home, Pierre and Pam Omidyar thought about how they could contribute to sustaining the land and energizing the economy.
After meeting and working with many people and organizations leading these efforts across the islands, the Omidyars narrowed their focus to the areas of local food production, renewable energy and waste reduction.
Pierre and Pam believe they can bring their business and philanthropic experiences to bear in these areas in a way that will catalyze positive, sustainable change for Hawaii. The Omidyars brought together a diverse team to build partnerships, research innovative projects and invest in Hawaii.
Ulupono Initiative is part of The Omidyar Group. For more information about the Omidyars’ personal, professional and philanthropic interests, visit OmidyarGroup.com.
Ulupono’s work is guided by a four-member board of directors made up of founders Pierre and Pam Omidyar, as well as Mike Mohr and Jeff Alvord.
