Thank you for your interest in donating to the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii and/or its temples. It is through the generous donations from our members and supporters that we are able to continue to spread the teachings of our founder, Shinran Shonin.


All donations collected using this button will go to support Lahaina Hongwanji and relief efforts on Maui, including addressing the immediate and short-term needs of temple families displaced by the fires and supporting the greater community as it rebuilds. Updates »
