Students collecting coconuts

The current COVID-19 crisis is impacting our Punahou School community in a myriad of ways. In times like these, gifts from those who are capable matter more than ever.

Your gift to our top priorities, our new PunsUnited Fund (Emergency Financial Aid) and the Punahou Fund (Unrestricted/Critical Needs), will ensure that our most important work carries on. Not everyone can help now, but if you can, your gift of any amount is welcome.

Ku‘u Punahou: We did it!

Mahalo to the more than 12,000 donors who contributed to the astounding success of Ku‘u Punahou, the first comprehensive campaign undertaken in the School’s history. Since its launch in 2013, this monumental campaign has transformed every facet of Punahou School, from pedagogy to the physical environment.

Because of our generous donors, more children now have access to a Punahou education; innovative learning spaces have been realized; and students continue to be inspired to lead lives of purpose. Together, we have raised more than $176 million to transform the future of education at Punahou.
