Our story

We were founded as a 501(c)(3) in 2009 to support the community by promoting charitable organizations. 

Over the years our mission has evolved to support and respond to a variety of community needs.  We support projects as they develop their own 501(c)(3) or who are responding to short term community needs.

Our mission is to promote advancement for charitable foundations and to facilitate fiscal sponsorship to benefit the community of the County of Maui.
