Disaster Relief Assistance

In August 2023, the National Association of REALTORS®’ Relief Foundation awarded the Hawai‘i REALTORS® a grant of $1.5 million in disaster relief aid to help homeowners and renters whose primary residence was damaged or destroyed by the Maui wildfires. The Hawai‘i REALTORS® Charitable Foundation received an overwhelming number of applications. Working with the REALTORS® Association of Maui, they have been able to distribute the relief money to eligible applicants.


Hawai‘i REALTORS® launched the Hawai‘i REALTORS® Charitable Foundation in 2020 to provide support for Hawai‘i’s communities during the pandemic.

The Hawai‘i REALTORS® Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to work with community partners towards eliminating food insecurity and/or providing housing to those in need.

The foundation is supported by the generosity of our members. To learn more about how you can assist with future efforts, e-mail har@hawaiirealtors.com.
