The Time is Now!
The time to Rebuild Kalanihonua is NOW! We are committed to reconstructing a strong foundation for future generations to experience the magic of this land and community. Please join us on this mission.
Rebuild and Renew
Here at Kalanihonua we are focused on inspiring new ways of being in the world. We have created a space for you to live simply, learn joyfully, experience community and honor the land. Through a deepened relationship with nature and a mindful focus on personal, ecological and societal well-being, we aim to be a sustainable, living model for healthier community interaction.
For the past 42 years, Kalanihonua has openly welcomed you as ‘ohana, as family and has created a sacred space for your personal transformation. When you needed a place to rebuild, Kalani was there for you. We hope now that you, our ohana, can come together to help Kalani rebuild.
As we step into maturity as an organization, we know that we can no longer pass on unresolved issues for future generations to deal with. Now is the time for us to rebuild Kalani from the ground up with a strong and solid foundation, in compliance with county, state and federal regulations.
We know this rebuild will be no easy task. We must replace our kitchen hood vent and fire suppression system. The EPA is demanding that we convert our waste systems to septic. Many of our buildings and assembly spaces need to be rebuilt to meet updated building and electrical codes as well.
These projects alone – anticipated to cost between $1-2MM – represent the known infrastructure updates we must make in the short-term, to continue operating. There are unknowns as well.
All-in, this endeavor is going to cost us $3 to 4 million. For this reason, we are committed to creating long-term fiscal well-being for Kalanihonua through a number of other strategies we are pursuing now, including but not limited to improving our technology and diversifying and optimizing revenue streams. However, given the current situation and the accumulation of back debt, we will not be able to continue operating without support from our global ‘ohana.
How You Can Help
This is where you come in, our friends, family, partners, former and future guests, staff and volunteers: our ‘ohana. We hope that the aloha you’ve felt at Kalani still resonates in you and that you can help us level-up our operations for future generations to feel the same.
This will take time and lots of money. But with our plan and your active participation, we know that we can successfully rebuild Kalani and continue growing this vision together.
Any level of giving will be graciously accepted to build a better Kalanihonua and a better world. Thank you for your consideration and generosity.
