About The Fund

Our ability to meet our work force needs, particularly in the technology fields, will determine the success of our economic goals. Recognizing the critical nature of this preparation, MEDB has worked vigorously throughout its history to enhance education and training in our community.

To further support this growing need for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) skills, our board of directors created the MEDB Ke Alahele Education Fund in 2006 as a grant making vehicle. The Fund stimulates community investment in broadening career pathways for Maui County residents.

Learn more about the Fund in this special video produced by Maui High School’s Digital Media team.
