Alumni are the foundation of Punahou’s global network of support and a quintessential part of Punahou’s culture of philanthropy. Participation in giving at any level is a meaningful way to honor the past and express support for the School’s future. Giving is encouraged every year – through the longstanding tradition of Reunion Giving or outside the five-year Reunion cycle. Reunion year or not, every gift is counted as a Class Gift for that year, as well as an individual gift, and celebrated in Punahou’s Annual Report, Giving to Punahou.
Reunions represent a significant opportunity to reconnect with old friends as well as Punahou. Over the decades, Reunion Class Gifts have supported building campaigns, endowments for financial aid, specific curricular and faculty programs and funded the operation of the school. A Reunion Class Gift is any type of gift made during your reunion year (July 1 to June 30). Any gift given during this period is counted as a Reunion Class Gift.
