This year, the Maui United Way Evaluation Panel, made up of volunteer community members, has chosen organizations with the greatest potential to create impactful change in our community.

“We are excited to support these remarkable organizations and their dedicated work to transform lives and make our community stronger,” said Nick Winfrey, President and CEO of Maui United Way. “Through the Community Impact Grants, we are not just funding programs; we’re investing in our community’s potential.”

Winfrey said that in the past year, Maui United Way has been able to make a significant impact in the Maui community thanks to generous donors, committed partners, and the efforts of Community Impact Grant recipients.


The application for the next Community Impact Grant cycle will open in January 2025. Organizations interested in applying should visit the Maui United Way website for more information.

Established in 1945, Maui United Way works to unite people and resources to build a healthier community. By focusing on education, income stability, and health, the organization envisions a community where every individual has the opportunity to achieve their potential through education, financial stability and healthy lives.
