The HEI family of companies continues to support the communities affected by the devastating wildfires on Maui. With our resources and energies focused on supporting our friends, families, neighbors and fellow employees impacted in Lahaina, we have made the difficult decision to defer review of 4th Quarter grants until 2024. Your grant proposal will still be reviewed by the HEI Charitable Foundation team, and we expect to share our decision with your organization no later than March 31, 2024. Thank you in advance for understanding.
