Give to the Hualalai 'Ohana Crisis Response Fund

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

Lana kakou i ka hau'oli o ha'i

We rise by lifting the happiness of others

As the human and economic impact of the Covid 19 pandemic continues, we would like to ask for your help for our community. The Hualalai ‘Ohana Foundation is initializing the Hualalai ‘Ohana Crisis Response Fund. This fund will be used to ease the many hardships employees are experiencing.

We have heard from many of our residents and supporters expressing concern for the well-being of the employees and an interest in learning more about how the Foundation is participating in the response.

Our goal is to help keep balance in the lives of our resort ‘ohana in their time of need. All administrative costs are covered by our Foundation, which means 100% of your donation goes directly to benefit our recipients.

The fund will be administered by the Hualalai ‘Ohana Foundation staff and its board of directors. Our efforts will be carefully executed and will be complementary to all Federal, State, and local efforts. Our belief is this could be a much longer recovery for the hospitality industry and we approach this effort with a long-term view. Much is unknown at this time so we will remain flexible in how to best use our resources going forward.

Since our founding in 2002, the Foundation has been there for employees. At times, this has required the flexibility to respond quickly and nimbly to the needs of employees while staying true to our mission and purpose. You may recall the 2011 Tsunami at Kona Village where we mobilized to support the immediate and basic needs and concerns of resort employees, providing a vehicle for the most basic necessities of life such as groceries, utilities, prescriptions and gasoline so that they could get back to what's really important - their 'ohana.

With your help, we will continue to demonstrate our commitment to our community at a time when they need it most.

Thank you for considering an online gift today.
