Save Haʻikū Stairs 80th Anniversary Fundraiser

Tax deductible
The Friends of Haʻikū Stairs are excited to wish the Stairway to Heaven a Happy 80th Birthday! Please help us celebrate by donating to our Save the Stairs fundraiser.

We are working overtime to Save the Stairs in their 80th Anniversary year. We are excited to have the support of Josh Green, who is the newly elected Governor of Hawai‘i and has publicly endorsed managed access for the Stairs.

Reopening the Stairs is now more possible than ever, but we need your support to continue this fight.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of 2022 to halt removal and reopen the Stairs discussion.

All money donated will go directly to our mission to Save the Stairs by supporting new community initiatives, legal defense, and managed access plans. You can learn more about this here.

Anyone who donates will also be automatically entered into our online giveaway for a chance to win incredible prizes! Learn more here.

Please donate to our fundraiser if you love the Stairs as much as we do and would hate to see this iconic landmark be senselessly removed. Together, we will Save the Stairs and won't stop fighting until we do.

Friends of Haʻikū Stairs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to protect the historic Haʻikū Stairs and surrounding ʻāina for current and future generations. You may be familiar with the Haʻikū Stairs, or Stairway to Heaven, and the City Council’s bid to spend millions of dollars to destroy them. Despite what you may have read, the fight to save the Haʻikū Stairs is far from over. FHS believes managed access provides responsible, respectful, and sustainable solutions to keep the Stairs that will benefit the entire valley.
