Maui Relief Fund Donation Link:

Through our Rotary District 5000 Foundation, a relief fund has been established. Foundation President
Dave Hamil and Treasurer Sharon Amano will handle all donations. The Rotary District 5000 Foundation is a 501c3 organization and all donations are considered charitable.

A committee will be organized shortly to find the greatest needs for distribution of monies. Monies will be used to make the largest impact based on needs and will be sustainable. A single fund will be the most
helpful over time to provide the greatest significant benefits.

Please consider donating to this special fund.
