The Fraternal Order of Moai selected the Easter Island Foundation as their national charity. The Fellowship of the FOM Foundation is proud to support many scholarships annually, administered by the EIF. Many of EIF’s members are aware that we have been chosen as the beneficiary of past fundraisers organized by the Fraternal Order of Moai Foundation, namely the Ohana Luau at the Lake. With FOM’s support, EIF has been able to continue to award annual scholarships to promising Rapa Nui college students (19 scholarships in 2021, with 10 scholarships funded by FOM). The success of our program and the ability to award more scholarships each year is directly due to FOM’s generosity. FOM also donates annually to the Toki Rapa Nui School of Music and to Terevaka Archaeological Outreach, organizations whose programs directly benefit the youth of Rapa Nui. In 2020, due to Covid-19, FOM was forced to cancel their annual in-person event, the Ohana Luau at the Lake (rescheduled for September 2021). Instead, FOM organized two virtual fundraisers, The Covhana 2020 Luau-in-Place and the Silent Auction. The Covhana Luau-in-Place ended on June 26th and raised over $44,000 and the Silent Auction ended on June 20th and raised over $17,000!

The Terevaka Archaeological Outreach Program was created to help Rapanui high school students learn ways of preserving the past while preparing them for the future. It has the following goals: to utilize archaeology as a foundation for education and opportunity within Rapa Nui’s island community; to promote awareness and expertise in archaeology and cultural conservation; to document, study, and conserve the remarkable treasures of the past that remain on Rapa Nui today.

William Mulloy Library (Biblioteca Mulloy)
The William Mulloy Library (Biblioteca William Mulloy) is located at the Museo Antropológico P. Sebastián Englert (MAPSE) on the island. The library was named in honor of the late Dr. William Mulloy, an anthropologist whose research and rebuilding projects on the island contributed significantly to knowledge of the island’s prehistory. Mulloy’s collection of books, papers, maps, field notes and photographic materials forms the core of this scientific research museum, augmented by acquisitions and gifts. The Easter Island Foundation was instrumental in the creation of the library and continues to donate books and other materials. To learn more, please visit the links below.
