Keawalai Endowment Fund

“Sharing God’s Aloha
from Generation to Generation”

Keawalai Congregational Church, in Mākena, Maui, Hawaii, a Christian fellowship where we welcome all, love all and accept all into our ohana, has established a permanent endowment fund to preserve our Hawaiian heritage and to sustain its work and mission. This fund consists of a permanent corpus of monetary resources, originating from the gifts of faithful church members and friends of the Church.

The Endowment

The endowment is a fund held in perpetuity. Funds are placed in socially responsible investments by the Board of Trustees. Resources generated by the invested endowment are used to preserve our Hawaiian heritage and to further the ministry and mission of Keawala’i Church. This may be done through the following means:

  • Preserving our landmark sanctuary as a center of ministry and mission.
  • Providing for pastoral leadership.
  • Preparing all ages through Christian Education.
  • Providing for the ministry of music, worship, and the arts.
  • Proclaiming mission outreach to the community & UCC missions.
  • Assisting in the Church budget and property improvements & additions.

Ways to Give

OUTRIGHT GIFTS during lifetime of cash, stocks, bonds, or real property may be made. These may honor family members on anniversaries, birthdays, and other special occasions.

BEQUEST BY WILL may also be made by percentage or set amount of one’s estate. Consider an amount to at least sustain your present annual giving in perpetuity.

A LIVING TRUST provides for future family needs and designating Keawalai to eventually receive income and/or the principal from the trust.

LIFE INSURANCE where Keawalai is named as beneficiary on a present or new policy; or Keawalai is made owner of a policy that you pay the premiums on; or the cash surrender value of a policy gifted to Keawala‘i are other ways to give.
