Our story

Maui Health Foundation, formerly Maui Memorial Medical Center Foundation, was created in 1997 with a $1.25 million bequest from the late Richard North, a Kihei resident. Mr. North was so moved by the care he received at Maui Memorial Medical Center that he bequeathed the bulk of his estate to demonstrate his gratitude. This incredible gift planted the seed for the beginning of the Foundation. In 2019, the Foundation changed its name to Maui Health Foundation, to align itself with Maui Health as our support now encompasses not only Maui Memorial Medical Center, but Kula Hospital and Lanai Community Hospital.

Maui Health Foundation is dedicated to the philanthropic support of Maui Health hospitals. We strive to work hand in hand with Maui Health to truly be a lifeline for our patients by supporting patient care, advancing programs and technology, and creating healing environments for all who walk through our doors.

Maui Health Foundation is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. With our partnership with Maui Health, we are pleased to announce that beginning in 2021, 100% of your donations made to Maui Health Foundation will go toward saving lives on Maui.
