maui county logoWAILUKU, Maui, Hawai‘i – A “Maui County Remembers” memorial fund has been established by Pūlama Lāna‘i to provide financial assistance to the families of those who perished or were injured in the Lāna‘i plane crash on February 26, 2014. All funds will be allocated to assist crash victims and their families.

“Our hearts go out to the families who have lost loved ones and those who were injured in this tragic accident,” said Kurt Matsumoto, Chief Operating Officer of Pūlama Lāna‘i. “This fund was created to aid the victims and their families during this difficult time of recovery and healing.”


Mayor Arakawa said there has been an “outpouring of support” for the victims’ families, but no mechanism to direct financial support to them. “Pūlama Lāna‘i has helped facilitate the process, and we are grateful for their assistance.”

Donations are accepted at any Bank of Hawaii branch; checks should be made payable to “Maui County Remembers.” Online donations may be made through May 31, 2014 with any major credit card or PayPal at
