Two core values in the mission statement of the Fraternal Order of Moai are Good Works and Preservation. To further these goals, the Order has designated the Easter Island Foundation as our national charity. The FOM supports the Easter Island Foundation by conducting specific fundraising efforts and by sharing the proceeds of official FOM events, such as the Hot Rod Hula Hop and OHANA Luau at the Lake.

The majority of the proceeds come from silent auctions held at events and live auctions of Mystery Bowl cocktails prepared for attendees. The lively Mystery Bowl auction and the elaborate presentation of the bowls to the winners by a dancing Mystery Girl and Mystery Boy embodies the Order's concept of fun with a purpose.

The Easter Island Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1989, promotes conservation and protection of the fragile cultural heritage of Easter Island and other Polynesian islands. Among its many projects, the Foundation established the William Mulloy Library on the island and continues to support its operations. In addition, the Foundation funds archaeological research; provides students with scholarships, books and equipment; publishes a series of books about Easter Island and Polynesia; publishes Rapa Nui Journal; and sponsors conferences about Easter Island and Polynesia.

The Moai are excited to support The Easter Island Foundation through our charity, The Fraternal Order of Moai Foundation, and we look forward to growing this commitment in the future.
