Posted • These tips come directly from The National Traumatic Stress Network and Children’s Hospital of Orange County. How you use these tips will depend heavily on your current situation so adapt them as you see fit. And while I am not an expert in this field, if you have questions or need extra support in this, I’ll try to find more resources for you.

Please share these tips with all parents and caregivers who have young keiki. Even if your family wasn’t directly affected by the fires, your keiki may still be feeling anxious or may be asking you questions.

Love you ‘ohana. Let’s support our keiki as much as we can as they navigate through this tragedy alongside us 💛

The Hawai‘i Community Foundation, with the generosity of donors, has activated its Maui Strong Fund with $1 million in commitments to support residents affected by the Maui wildfires.

The effort was anchored by a $500,000 contribution from the Omidyar ‘Ohana Fund at HCF, in addition to $170,000 from existing funds in the Maui Strong Fund, $100,000 from the Goodfellow Bros., $50,000 from Hawai‘i Life, $25,000 from the Cooke Foundation, $25,000 from Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design, a center of the Doris Duke Foundation, and anonymous donors.

“HCF is collaborating with Maui County Mayor Bissen, state leaders, and nonprofit organizations to assess the evolving situation and the priorities needed to support Maui residents at this time,” says Micah Kāne, CEO and president of HCF. “The Maui Strong Fund will provide resources that can be deployed quickly, with a focus on relief and recovery for the devastating wildfires that are still taking place on Maui. A sincere mahalo to our donors who continue to support our community in the times we need it most. Our hearts go out to everyone on Maui right now.”

HCF will not be collecting a fee for donations to the Maui Strong Fund; 100 percent of the funds will be distributed for community needs.

For nonprofit organizations seeking funding, please email your request to [email protected]. In an effort to move resources swiftly and to reduce the burden on organizations serving on the frontlines, HCF is forgoing a formal application process at this time. The initial round of grants is expected to be released as soon as possible.

Did you know it takes less than 10 mins to file your 990N tax form online if you've logged in before using the IRS's new ID.me sign-in option?

It's never TOO early to file your PT(S)A taxes (990-N Form) online after the close of each school fiscal year. The deadline to file is 15th day of the 5th month following the end of the fiscal year (typically, Nov. 15th).

File online for free at https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/annual-electronic-filing-requirement-for-small-exempt-organizations-form-990-n-e-postcard, if your unit's annual gross receipts are normally $50,000 or less. Registration takes 5 mins and filing 10 mins (max).

Per the IRS, a PTA must file the appropriate Form 990 every year. There are no exceptions to this requirement. Not filing the Form 990 will place the PTA's tax-exempt status in jeopardy and may result in the PTA having to pay significant fines and penalties. If you discover your PTA is currently delinquent in filing the appropriate Form 990, contact the HI State PTSA immediately.


The HIDOE online school bus pass application & payment feature for school year 2023-2024 is now OPEN! Parents and guardians can visit https://hi.etrition.com/busapplication to sign up.
