As a non-profit organization 501(c)(3), Hālau Kalama provides discounted dance instruction to those who wish to learn and embrace the Polynesian culture. We also volunteer performing at various community events and retirement homes/assisted living facilities, as well as for other non-profit organizations such as The Ronald McDonald Home & Food Bank of The Rockies. Additionally, Hālau Kalama offers an ‘Ohana Kokua Program (‘Ohana meaning ‘Family’ and Kokua meaning ‘Help’) for those who are in need of any type of assistance (e.g. financial, food, etc.).
The funds raised or received from donations help to offset the cost of our dance studio, and the costs of hula implements/musical instruments, as wells as, materials and supplies used to create costumes for our students to wear at our various performances (e.g. Colorado Dragon Boat Festival, Boulder Aloha Festival, Guam Liberation, Rocky Mountain Airshow, etc.). We graciously accept any type of donation to help carry out our mission and are very appreciative and humbled by your generosity. We are a tax-exempt U.S. charitable organization granted 501(c) (3) status by the Internal Revenue Service. All donations are tax deductible. Monetary Donations can be sent directly to our Studio at:
