West Maui Mountains Watershed Partnership
Our Partnership's funding comes from government and private source grants. We do not have a dedicated source of funding. Our annual operations budget in 2007 was approximately $450,000. We think that's a small price to pay for the value of our watersheds.
The protection of West Maui's watersheds, and ultimately our source of clean water, relies heavily on our ability to generate funds for years to come. Expanded funds are needed to continue the progress we've made and to protect more acres.
