1841 Society

Members of the 1841 Society are vital partners investing in the priorities of the School. They have established endowed funds that will support the School in perpetuity, have helped fund major renovations or new facilities on campus or have given unrestricted funds. Honoring donors of $50,000 or more in a fiscal year, or those who have given $1 million over their lifetime, these individuals enable Punahou to pursue its boldest aspirations and fulfill its promise as an educational thought leader. Thank you for your remarkable partnership and generosity.

Founders’ Circle

The Founders’ Circle celebrates extraordinary supporters whose gifts to the School support a wide variety of initiatives and total $10,000 to $49,999 in a fiscal year. Punahou is profoundly grateful to you, the generous members of its 2017 — 2018 Founders’ Circle.


We are humbled and grateful to the current and former members of the Punahou faculty and staff who made a gift to the School this fiscal year, in addition to their dedication, time and talent. Your spirit of giving is an inspiration to others.


Philanthropic support from foundations, organizations and corporations is crucial to the success of nonprofit institutions throughout our community. The School is grateful to the many entities that support education, and Punahou in particular.

Punahou is especially appreciative of the listed foundations and organizations for their generous support of specific programs and activities during the 2017 – 2018 fiscal year.
