Donate to teachers who lost their homes and classrooms to the August wildfires in Lahaina and Kula

For those who’d like to help, the Hawaiʻi State Teachers Association is collecting donations as well as sharing donation pages of teachers, current and retired, affected by the Maui wildfires. Mahalo for your generosity during these difficult times.

Initial counts indicate at least 57 Maui educators have either lost their homes entirely in the fires or their homes suffered damage to the extent that they have to temporarily relocate. Another 44 teachers reported property damage from the fires. Since the flames destroyed King Kamehameha III Elementary School, all of the teachers there have lost their classrooms.

HSTA fire relief donations

Those who wish to contribute money towards the Hawaiʻi State Teachers Association’s Maui fire relief effort may send checks in any amount to HSTA. Money donated will be provided directly to our educator members impacted by the wildfires. HSTA is not a 501(c)(3) and any donation is NOT tax deductible.

If you prefer to donate by check:

Please make your check out to HSTA and send it to HSTA Attn: Maui Fire Relief, 1200 Ala Kapuna St., Honolulu, HI 96819.

If you prefer to donate electronically: NEA Member Benefits has set up a GoFundMe page for HSTA Maui Fire Relief. NEA Member Benefits will cover any fees imposed by GoFundMe, which means all donations will go to impacted members.
