The Maui Pops Orchestra is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Ticket sales alone cannot meet the expense of operating the Pops. We ask for your support as a fan of pops and “light classics” so that Maui Pops can continue to grow and thrive on Maui. We invite you to make a gift this year to expand the support this Maui treasure of musical excellence deserves. All donations are tax deductible. Mahalo (thank you) for your Aloha!!
Your contribution is an important part of our annual operating budget. It will allow us to continue offering fun and exciting performances at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. Additionally, it will help us finance student performances, and musicales at varied sites and facilities on Maui, designed especially for those who may be otherwise unable to attend a MACC performance.
All sponsors may request certain aspects of our Maui Pops concerts that they would like to support. We will make every effort to steer the donation to that part of the budget. Donations of over $10,000 are treated as special cases, and will be dealt with individually per the wishes of the donor.
