The People of Maui


Help provide relief to those displaced by the Maui wildfires.
Though Queen Kaʻahumanu Center was not directly affected by the wildfires, the people of Maui need our kōkua in this incredibly tragic time. Our hearts break for the thousands of people that have been displaced and became homeless overnight. Below is a list of what Queen Kaʻahumanu Center is doing to help and how you too can participate.

The People of Maui


Contribute to the Maui Fire Relief Fund

As the operating manager of Queen Kaʻahumanu Center and stakeholders in the Maui community, Pacific Retail Capital Partners and the portfolio’s 18 retail properties across the nation have come together to raise much needed immediate funds.

Pacific Retail has launched a national fundraiser in partnership with DTL Foundation, a local 501(c)3 to establish the Maui Fire Relief Fund. 100% of proceeds* will go to support the struggling ohana or families of Maui. The funds will be used to purchase critical supplies and other necessities that are in short supply on the island and help those families begin the rebuilding process. Pacific Retail has agreed to match the first $10,000 raised. Information is available at

* A 2.9% processing fee and $0.30 will be added to each donation.
