THAT’S A WRAP! Mahalo nui, to ALL our guests, sponsors, volunteers, families and vendors that supported MHOK at our7th Annual Tinsel Town Nights Gala on March 14, 2015. Your support has played a roll in the overall success of this very important fundraiser and allowed MHOK’s Tinsel Town Nights to once again be labeled as one of Wailea’s, “Best parties of the year!”
Over $40,000 in funding was raised at the event, all of which will directly support the families and keiki of South Maui and beyond through the school’s 2015/2016 school year Tuition Assistance Program and the enrichment and/or development of unique Educational Programs for all MHOK students, pre-k through 8th grade.
Mahalo again for all the new and continued support we received this year and we hope to see everyone again next year! Aloha
All Nonprofits are Built on the Spirit of Giving
Montessori Hale O Keiki (MHOK) was founded on the belief that there was a better way to educate our youth. A small group of enterprising community members, business owners, and parents went about raising money to get the school off the ground and never looked back.
As MHOK celebrates it’s 24th anniversary this year, we invite you to support the school and its keiki. Here is how you can help:
JustGive.org is our main giving site allows you to donate at any time (minimum of $10). Want your donation to be restricted to a certain program? Not a problem, just let us know what your donation should be used for in the “Program” section. You can even set up a reoccurring donation which will automatically give to MHOK each month.
AmazonSmile is Amazon.com’s GIVING site. Nearly identical to their main site, Smile.Amazon.com allows you to give back to any non-profit of your choice with every sale you make through the Amazon.Smile.com website. Choose Montessori Hale O Keiki has your non-profit of choice and you will surely make us SMILE.
eScrip.com allows you to shop online like you normally would at many of the popular online retailers and a percentage of each purchase comes back to the school. You can also register your grocery store card (Safeway, Vons, etc.) and credit cards so that every purchase you make every day makes a difference for the school. No extra cost to you. You do not have to live in Hawaii to participate.
REALTOR INITIATIVE was inspired by the Alliance to Improve Maui and allows realtors to partner with MHOK by donating a percentage (1% – 10%) of their commission upon a sale to the school. Not only will this donation be tax-deductible, but flexible pledge options, PR and marketing benefits ensure the program is mutually beneficial for the realtor and MHOK. Donations collected through this realtor initiative will be used to provide Tuition Assistance-currently, 40% of MHOK’s students receive assistance every year. How does it add up? $3,100 will provide a 30% Tuition Assistance award to a deserving child, which is the average aid request. With your support we can continue to provide a unique learning environment that is both culturally and economically diverse. :: CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR REALTOR INITIATIVE
