HPA Fund: Every Student, Every Opportunity
Passion • Possibilities • Participation
What is the HPA Fund?
The HPA Fund provides vital unrestricted support for HPA, creating exceptional opportunities for learning and discovery in and out of the classroom. By supporting the HPA Fund annually, members of our HPA ‘ohana demonstrate a commitment to every HPA student today and help ensure that there is no limit to what Ka Makani can achieve in the future.
Why Annual Giving Matters
Tuition covers 80 percent of the cost of the HPA experience. The remaining 20 percent of the cost is dependent on support from alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends. The HPA Fund is a critical resource for helping to bridge this gap so that we are able to remain competitive and accessible for students across Hawai’i and around the globe. Gifts to the HPA Fund provide all of the things that make Ka Makani experience so extraordinary: an innovative and rigorous curriculum, inspiring visual and performing arts, more than a dozen interscholastic sports teams, access to financial aid, and talented faculty and staff. Every gift makes a difference.
Your Participation Matters. Really.The HPA Fund is an opportunity to stay connected with HPA and to ensure that every student has their own unique and memorable HPA experience. All gifts are 100% tax deductible.
