Maui Paddling Hui is starting this fund to help the families and individuals within the Maui paddling community that were directly affected by the recent Maui fires.
Many of these families have loss their homes, belongings, employment, canoes and so much more.
The road to recovery will be long so we are hoping these funds can help with long term needs to rebuild their lives and get them back on the water.
Maui Padding Hui is currently a 501(c)(4) organization with an application in process to become a 501(c)(3) organization. While gifts to 501(c)(4) organizations are not deductible as charitable contributions, once the IRS provides a determination letter confirming its 501(c)(3) status, all gifts received will qualify to be deductible as charitable donations. We will provide you with a letter confirming your gift as soon as the IRS responds to our application. Please contact your tax preparer for advice about how this might affect you.
