Make an Annual Gift

Kalo offers both leaves and corm for harvest. At the core of every plant is the huli, the part given back to the aina for the propagation of the next bountiful harvest. If in your core there’s a call to help Hawaiian Islands Land Trust propagate a bountiful conservation legacy for Hawaii, please give as whole-heartedly as the generous kalo. 

Making your gift is quick and simple!  Use your preferred method from the options below.

Gifts of appreciated stock, bonds, or mutual funds 

A smart and simple way to support Hawaiian Islands Land Trust! These gifts allow you to give more with less because you may be able to both take an income tax deduction and avoid capital gains taxes. If you plan to donate stock to HILT, please help us more efficiently process your gift by completing a Transfer Form to let us know your gift is coming. The form does NOT initiate the transfer of your stock; you will still need to initiate the transfer either electronically through your broker or by mailing the paper certificates directly. Transfer instructions are on the form.
