Aug. 11 Update: Thanks to generous support from private, philanthropic, and corporate sponsors, we have received commitments to match up to $3,000,000 in individual donations.
Mahalo to these
organizations that committed matching funds.
Together we can make a difference. Let's rally around our Maui community during this time of need. Your donation can help provide immediate and on-going relief to those affected by this tragedy.
A little history - While national outlets report on Lahaina as a tourist destination, it was so much more than that. Lahaina was the capital of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i for 25 years and home to the sacred Moku‘ula, the piko (center) of the Kingdom and the burial home to many of our ali‘i (chiefs). The loss of any ʻāina (land) is deeply felt by our community, but the destruction we’ve seen in Lahaina will be a scar felt for generations to come.
Your generosity will not only help them rebuild but also show the strength of our unity and aloha spirit. Checks may be written out to "Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement" with a memo "Kākoʻo Maui." Please send checks to:
