Hawaii Community Foundation
Kauai Relief and Recovery Fund

In the spring of 2018 torrential rains flooded many parts of the island of Kauai. Damaging over 500 residents in less than a week, displacing thousands, and causing massive infrastructural problem that cut many off from much needed help.

In response to this disaster the Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) quickly established matching gifts in concert with generous seed monies from Pierre and Pam Omidyar, the Agne Family Fund and two anonymous donors to establish the Kauai Relief and Recovery Fund.

As news spread internationally of this disaster HCF received more than 300 additional gifts totaling over $1.5 million in support for the people of Kauai. We are truly humbled by the support of all our donors who were quick to recognize the importance of coming to the aid of others in our islands. Mahalo yet again.
