Mālama Pono Health Services (MPHS) benefits from event fundraising — in fact, almost 15% of our budget comes from event fundraising. We go about our event fundraising in 3 ways:
- We put them on ourselves – Events that raise the most funds for MPHS we put on ourselves, which means we employ staff and contractors, expend funds, seek sponsorships and more. Our main event of this sort is Paradise Ride Kaua`i, a 100 plus mile ride over 2 days.
- You put them on for us – Events produced in the community, by the community for MPHS are a great way for businesses and individuals to achieve our mission. Typically MPHS offers marketing and planning support. A good example of this is the Craft Fair in Paradise.
- We put one on together – This doesn’t happen as often, as MPHS has limited contracted and paid staff, but occasionally we are able to work hand-in-hand on new events.
For questions of any kind related to events, contact our executive director at 808/ 246.9577.
