As 2017 kicks off we encourage you to please renew your Kōkua Mau Membership!
Or become a new member as a great New Year's resolution? And yes, membership is tax-deductible.
Membership and donations are an essential part of keeping Kōkua Mau fiscally sustainable. Individual Membership is starting at $40. We especially encourage organizational membership by community leaders that support our mission.
And indeed, with all donations going into programs we don't offer you a t-shirt, a tote bag with our logo, or even a pencil. We can offer you: the low cost version of a virtual Kokua Mau mug.
How do I join?
Please download our membership form and put it with a check in the good old postal mail.
Online: chose your membership level and:
- Click the Donate Now button on the right. Please put 'membership' in the 'Designation (Optional)' field, click 'add to giving cart' and follow the subsequent steps. We know, the free version of network for good does not look exciting but it is free and comes with a fee. Thank you!
- 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.)
Benefits of Joining Kōkua Mau?
Kōkua Mau, is a local non-profit, community-benefit organization. (We are not a state agency!)
