Hyatt Vacation Club at Kā‘anapali Beach
HVC Associate Recovery Fund

Application Portal has Closed

Our small community at the Hyatt Vacation Club has been most fortunate that the recent fires did not reach our property. Many of our associates have not been as fortunate. For them, the fire swept into their lives with little to no notice, and with no time to plan or gather belongings. The devastation that has been wrought impacted their lives in ways too terrible for us to imagine. Family members and friends may still be missing, and many have been lost to them forever.

Our friends—our ‘Ohana—who have cared for us and so graciously welcomed us to their island paradise year after year now find themselves without any of the essentials we take for granted. Homes have been reduced to ash and rubble, prized and treasured possessions, and family memorabilia have been lost forever. Beloved pets have died, and families have been separated by circumstances entirely beyond their control. Navigation of many of the available government relief options may be burdensome and slow to come to fruition. The emotional toll is overwhelming and the situation remains tenuous. The need for assistance is immense.

Now is the time to support our Maui family members. There are thousands who are deserving and in need of assistance, and there are many good ways to give. To focus our efforts, and in response to owners’ requests, we have created an Associate Recovery Fund that will accept your donations and provide immediate assistance solely and exclusively for our Kā‘anapali Beach resort operations associates and their families. This assistance will take the form of funding for housing, food, transportation, personal care items, medical care, clothing, and other essentials of daily living.

Charitable Ventures (Federal Tax ID #20-8756660) established this fund on our behalf, and will help us administer it. Charitable Ventures is an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions to the HVC Associate Recovery Fund are fully tax-deductible.

This is our opportunity to give back, help rebuild lives, and repair just a tiny bit of the damage that threatens to destroy the heart and soul of the island paradise we frequently call our home. Please open your hearts and contribute an amount you feel is appropriate.

You can also donate stocks or tradeable securities. To do so, click below to contact Amy Klein, Director of Business Development.

We are grateful for your support, and will be happy to answer any questions. Thank you for your generosity.
