Renew your 2017 Membership or Join Kōkua Mau now!

Now is a good time to put an easy New Year's resolution into practice (and get one thing accomplished already in the first weeks): join us or renew your Kōkua Mau membership for 2017 now. Your financial support is very important.

We've found a simple, fee-free way for you to pay your Kōkua Mau membership electronically with just 3 quick clicks: PayPal Giving Fund.

If you have a PayPal account, you can donate to Kōkua Mau through the PayPal Giving Fund and 100% of your donation goes to Kōkua Mau. Please use this link to make your donation. The PayPal Giving Fund has a set template and you may have to enter the membership level you want to join manually. The rest is 3 easy clicks and you are done. An email confirming your donation should follow shortly thereafter. (If you do not have a PayPal account you cannot use this fee-free service.)

Please note: This is not the same as using a PayPal account with a "donate' button on a website.  Once you enter your account via the PayPal Giving Fund there is no fee, even if you pay with the credit card on file liked to your PayPal account. Only donations through the PayPal Giving Fund link are transaction fee free. Please send us your feedback about your experience with this free service.

For the second year we are honored to be part of it.  You can make a contribution specifically to Kōkua Mau by using our designation number 80410 on the Donor Designation Form (or the online version).  

Please tell your colleagues, friends and loved ones who might be part of an AUW campaign as well. The coconut wireless is still the best way to spread the word about this wonderful opportunity to support Kōkua Mau.
