This is the time of the year when we ask you to join or renew your Kōkua Mau Membership
. Membership is tax-deductible and your financial support helps us to maintain and expand our programs. This includes the e-newsletters, free materials for download (including POLST and the new Advance Directive), our well-visited website, various training opportunities, monthly meetings, Palliative Pupus, and our expanding Speakers Bureau.
2016 will certainly be busy as we look forward to more outreach activities with churches, temples and other community groups - let us know if you would like to schedule our Speakers Bureau to visit. We also look forward to ongoing education and networking opportunities for professionals, both those organized by Kokua Mau and those where we can collaborate with partners.
Membership and donations are an essential part of keeping Kōkua Mau fiscally sustainable. Last year we had nearly 100 individuals who joined and details for membership are below. We especially encourage organizational membership
by community leaders that support our mission. Please contact Kokua Mau's Executive Director Jeannette Koijane
