Elisa Chong

Elisa Chong was inspired to start this fund, which supports single parent households, as a result of her own experience sending two children through Punahou. Both of her daughters entered at a young age; Krystle ’03 in Kindergarten, and Evelyn ’05 in first grade. She remembers the challenges of working to ensure the best education for her girls, and established this fund to help families in a similar situation.
Although Elisa worked as a physician’s assistant throughout the time Krystle and Evelyn were students at Punahou, she found time to volunteer as a room parent and at Carnival. She understands that the Punahou community extends beyond the students and alumni, and is excited to continue to give back to the school through this fund.
