Donor Community

Punahou’s vibrant and generous donor community is part of what makes our school so special.

The profound impact made by alumni, parents, grandparents, employees and other friends in our community is felt by every child, every day. We seek opportunities to recognize all donors and celebrate their giving to Punahou.

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.
