Faculty and Staff
Our faculty and staff’s commitment to Punahou’s mission is seen far beyond the classroom or office, and supporting the School’s aspirations has become part of a thriving culture of philanthropy on campus.
Parents are central to Punahou’s culture of philanthropy and giving to Punahou is a meaningful way to express support for the School and its educational vision.
Grandparents are often deeply committed to our students’ education, and Punahou recognizes the invaluable role they play in supporting their families.
“Punahou really teaches you how to succeed in life. And I feel that every time I come back and see the School, it just keeps getting better and better, whether it’s the facilities or curriculum. It’s really nice to reconnect and be a part of Punahou again.” Lois Mitsunaga ’00 and Ryan Shindo
“We believe that what makes Punahou exceptional, beyond its academic excellence, is the vast array of quality performing arts programs available to students. Our giving supports students in need who engage in these activities.” Scott ’69 and Sharan Power
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.
