Ways to Give

Outright gifts represent the most direct and immediate form of philanthropy and may be in the form of cash, assets or securities.

Pledges and recurring gifts allow you to distribute your gift over a period of time. A pledged gift is made for a specific amount in multiple payments on a specific schedule, usually up to five years. A recurring gift is a specific amount made at regular intervals, which continues as long as you wish.

Planned gifts provide future support for the School. They may include a charitable gift to Punahou in your estate plan, either through your will or revocable living trust; through a beneficiary designation from your retirement plan or insurance policy; or with a life income gift.

Employee Gift Match

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer's name below.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it (completed and signed) to Punahou along with your gift. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

PunsUnited Fund

Punahou School's fiscal year runs July 1 through June 30.
