Save the Arts Center
MAC News Release
Government mandates to close schools and stay at home closed our doors over a month ago. The Molokai Arts Center (MAC) has had no income for our basic expenses such as rent, utilities, and staffing to keep our nonprofit going. Our income from keiki classes, workshops, studio memberships, Alu Like Kupuna Program, Molokai Middle School Hawaiian Language Immersion Program, UPLINK, Kualapu’u School 21st Century Program, adult classes, and Maui Community College classes came to a complete halt. Concern is growing as COVID-19 continues to shape the way we operate.
Honolulu Magazine, in conjunction with the Hawaii Community Foundation, has repurposed Give Big Hawaii into The Aloha Campaign platform to assist in raising critical funds for nonprofits in Hawaii during this time of exceptional need. As a past participant, our Molokai Arts Center site has been reactivated. Please consider giving to the MAC as a 10th Anniversary Gift to Molokai’s only nonprofit arts education organization.
Hawaii Community Foundation has generously pledged to match the first $1,500 worth of donations. Visit givebighawaii.com/organizations/molokai-arts-center then click “donate.” Think of it as a “Happy 10th Anniversary” gift to the MAC so that we can continue beyond this, our 10th year of serving our island home. Share the link and invite your family and friends to give. Mahalo in advance! Hurry, the campaign ends May 30.
