How to Help Hawaii Public Schools
The Department is committed to strengthening partnerships and collaborative opportunities to cultivate needed resources and ensure equity of access. We welcome the support of our business, industry, and community members and organizations.
Here’s how you can help
We have partnered with the Public Schools of Hawaiʻi Foundation to accept monetary donations in support of our Maui school communities impacted by the devastating wildfires. Donations can be made at Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation and all gifts made through Oct. 1, 2023 will be dedicated solely to help our Maui students, staff and schools recover from this unimaginable tragedy.
Goods and Services
In-kind offers of support may be made through the Department’s Maui donation form. The information will be made available to schools and donors will be contacted at a later time if and when schools need the goods or services.

Donations of Goods for Homeless Keiki
Hawai‘i’s public schools serve homeless students statewide. Thanks to donations of classroom supplies, the Department of Education is usually able to provide students what’s needed for classwork – backpacks, notebooks, pens, etc. We often have a need for footwear, shoes and slippers. For additional questions or concerns, please contact the Education for Homeless Children and Youth program at
