Heart of Punahou Employees

The Heart Of Punahou Employees (HOPE) Committee was formed in 2015 by a group of dedicated colleagues to help Punahou engage all faculty and staff in the life of the School. HOPE’s goal is to support Punahou’s funding priorities through faculty and staff fundraising efforts. The support of the committee and all Punahou employees has created a culture that embraces philanthropy, understanding and 'ohana.
