The Hawai‘i Community Foundation: the Maui Strong Fund donate TODAY!

The Hawai‘i Community Foundation


In response to the devastating wildfires on Maui, The Hawai‘i Community Foundation is working to support affected communities through the Maui Strong Fund, providing resources for disaster response and recovery.

Your kokua and donations are needed and greatly appreciated! 


As we try to comprehend the desolation of Lahaina, the death and suffering of her people and the heartache and bewilderment of this devastation, let us not waist the opportunity to address the potential of this apocalypse occurring again. I struggle to understand such loss, I don’t recognize the ruins and remains of a town I once called home, it is beyond inconceivable and I have yet to fully embrace the idea that Lahaina no longer exists and must be rebuilt.


One thing I do recognize, however, is that many of Hawai’i neighborhoods are vulnerable to wind fueled fire and our efforts to malama ‘aina must be stepped up lest we see this horrific tragedy repeated in other populated areas of the islands. Blessing to all who have suffered and to those who are there in the community giving their kokua and aloha. Please give to the Maui Strong Fund!

Kimo - have never been to Hawaii but grieve for the losses of so many people. May the recovery be quick even with the isolation of your location. The bright spot is how so many are coming together to begin the journey.

Aloha Kimo,

Maui has been a second home to my family since 2000.  We were there right after 9/11 when the islands opened up, and tourists stayed home.  We will be there to support our extended Ohana once again.  This is heartbreaking to all of us.

I've been closely following the devastating news of what has happened on Maui.  Steven Nickens has posted a photo of the significant damage on his island.  It is obvious there is going to be a lot of help needed to assist those who have lost so much.
