Oprah Winfrey and Dwayne Johnson Launch Fund for Wildfire-Affected Families in Maui

Oprah Winfrey and Dwayne Johnson Establish Fund for Wildfire-Affected Families in Maui

Oprah Winfrey and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have announced the creation of the People’s Fund of Maui, a fund designed to provide direct financial assistance to families and individuals who were displaced and affected by the devastating wildfires that hit Maui. The fund is launching with an initial $10 million donation from Winfrey and Johnson.

Eligible recipients are adult residents over the age of 18 who live in the affected areas and were displaced by the wildfires in Lahaina and Kula. They will receive $1,200 per month from the fund to help them during the recovery period.

The establishment of the fund was done in collaboration with community elders, leaders, and residents, including Hōkūlani Holt-Padilla, Keali’i Reichel, Archie Kalepa, Ekolu Lindsey, and others.

Oprah Winfrey stated that the fund aims to support those impacted by the fires as they navigate the financial burden of rebuilding. Dwayne Johnson praised the resilience of the Maui community and expressed gratitude for the opportunity to work alongside community leaders to launch the fund.

Contributions to the People’s Fund of Maui can be made through PeoplesFundofMaui.org, and all net proceeds will go directly to those impacted by the wildfires in Maui. The fund operates under the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
