The Maui wildfires, which destroyed most of the historic town of Lahaina, have been the deadliest in the U.S. in more than a century, with 1000+ residents still unaccounted for and more than 2,200 structures (mostly residential) destroyed. The situation in Maui creates very unique challenges and the road to recovery will be long.
How You Can Help
The RIA is working with our members, industry partners and vendors to coordinate efforts to mobilize and provide needed supplies and resources to the area. Details on how you can help support this initiative will be coming soon.
Additionally, the following non-profit organizations* are accepting donations to deploy resources to the communities impacted by the Maui wildfires:
Featured Non-Profit: Makai Foundation
The Makai Foundation is supporting Maui during this difficult time to keep Hawaiian lands in Hawaiian hands, bridge the gap where insurance falls short, cut through red tape, and take care of local families and businesses.
The Makai Foundation is working on two major initiatives and will begin accepting applications for both shortly to: 1) provide Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) for displaced residences who do not have financial means and 2) support new home construction for uninsured and underinsured residents with financial need.
