PWF Maui Disaster Response Funds

In light of the recent disasters on Maui, we are committed to standing by one another and our community. We have been working tirelessly to help those whose lives have been turned upside down, gathering needed supplies and making daily supply runs from Ma’alaea to Lahaina on Ocean Spirit and Ocean Odyssey with employees and community volunteers, transporting those who need to evacuate the area, and housing those without homes to return to at our Ma’alaea offices.

The support of the community has been overwhelming – we are forever grateful for each and every one of you. Your generous support exceeded our expectations; we quickly surpassed our original goal of $500,000 for the PWF Disaster Relief Fund to support our 22 team members who lost everything. We have now shifted our funds to focus on supporting Maui communities and marine environment. Please direct your contribution to one of our two funds below.
