Where does the money go?

Hui Ho’olana is a non-profit, 501(c3) Organization.  The fees for the workshops go directly from the students to the teachers. The teacher in turn makes a donation to Hui Ho’olana to assist with their expenses.

This income goes directly back into the organization and the community for

  • Supplies and food (primarily from local merchants) 53%
  • Services (office help, cleaning, maintenance, repairs, etc. – by local Molokai residents) 21%
  • Utilities 12%
  • Land lease 7%
  • Postage, catalog, website 4%
  • Bank charges, insurance, etc. 3%

As we are a non-profit organization, other donations are made from various supporters as well. These donations go towards scholarships, guest teachers and lecturers, reforestation and improvements and as well as various local projects.

Hui Ho’olana offers resident discounts and scholarships for many workshops. Free classes have been offered to the community in permaculture and reforestation, native plant propagation, group facilitation, and photography.

Hui Ho’olana pays no salaries. A number of local residents are hired to help with the office, lodge and grounds Most jobs are volunteer positions, including the directors and the staff. The staff consists of friends, new and old, who want to contribute to the mission of Hui Ho’olana and their reforestation efforts.  These volunteers include community leaders, teachers, doctors, lawyers, artists, young people and retired – all who care about building a sense of community, kindness and support. Recycling, water re-usage, erosion control and the use of solar energy have all become part of our caring for the land.

Hui Ho’olana has become a place to practice many skills and take them back into local communities.
