In Kind Donations
Donations of new or gently used goods or food/beverage products are graciously accepted in Kilolani Hall during office hours. Please consider giving in-kind donations to two causes.
A Cup of Cold Water serves the homeless through the only outreach mission on Maui. The ACCW van makes three ‘runs’ every week to Central Maui (Wednesdays), West Maui (Saturdays) and South Maui (Sundays). Here is a link to a list of items needed for distribution: http://trinitybts.org/homeless-outreach-needs/. The most needed item is cases of bottled water. Please bring items to Trinity on Sunday.
Trinity Rummage Sale is one of our top fundraising events for the church. We accept all gently used and functioning items from clothing to household goods to toys all year round. Please bring them to Kilolani Hall during office hours or on Sunday and leave them in the shopping cart to the right of the door as you enter Kilolani Hall. We do accept furniture and large items during the week prior to the rummage sale.
If you would like a receipt for your taxes, please inquire in the office or leave a note with the items that includes address you wish the receipt to be mailed to. Mahalo nui loa!
Your tax-deductible cash donation can be used by Trinity in many ways. You can designate your donation to be utilized for the Grounds Renovation Project, A Cup of Cold Water homeless outreach program or Stewardship payments. If you do not specify one of these options your donation will be deposited into the General Fund.
Grounds Renovation Project
Trinity By-the-Sea is a historic landmark location deserving of thoughtful and meticulous care to preserve its heritage and history for the future. A staff of volunteers organize workdays throughout the year to repair, maintain and improve Trinity’s grounds and gardens. You may designate your donation to the Grounds Fund which is used exclusively for this purpose. You might also consider volunteering to help on an upcoming workday!
As Christians, we begin and end our lives in grace as part of a faith community. We celebrate and struggle together, encourage each other, and learn about God’s love and mercy. Here, we can consider our own mortality and the legacy we would like to leave. Bequests and other planned gifts enable us to continue our stewardship of God’s gifts and to form an estate plan that expresses our faith.

David Malo Fund
In 1852, as architect and builder, David Malo completed Kilolani Church on the present site of Trinity Episcopal Church by-the-Sea. Malo chose this location because it contained the historic Lihue Cemetery, which dates back to 1832. The land at 100 Kulanihakoi Street is rich in Hawaiian history and owned by the Department of Land and Natural Resources of the State of Hawaii. Trinity pays rent for the land to the state and is the ‘caretaker’ charged with preserving the history of this hallowed location. Donations to continue to help maintain this rich Hawaiian history should be made payable to ‘Trinity Episcopal Church by-the-Sea’ with a notation earmarked for David Malo Fund.
A Cup of Cold Water
A community Care-Van outreach program on the island of Maui, formed by a group of committed Episcopalians from Good Shepherd, Holy Innocents, St. John’s and Trinity By-the-Sea. The program is a food and clothing distribution service for the poor and needy in the community, and uses the care-van to deliver essential food, hygiene and clothing items throughout the island. With a strong volunteer base from the Episcopal Churches on Maui, the program is growing and now includes churches from various denominations. You may send a cash donation designated for ACCW through the donation form on this page or you may contact Keku Akana, ACCW Board President or Mary Lou Mellinger directly at 808-419-1637.
You may use the donation form to submit your pledged or recurring stewardship payments.
Flowers on the altar are a special way to remember someone dear or to commemorate a special event. You may specify your donation for Remembrance Flowers on the next upcoming Sunday or a future Sunday of your choosing.
