By personal property

Gifts of tangible personal property, such as art, jewelry, antiques, rare books, gold or silver, offer the donor an immediate tax deduction; the amount depends on whether the gift is related to the college’s educational purpose.

Through your financial planning or estate

By making HPA a beneficiary of your will, you become a member of HPA’s Lo‘ihi Society. The Lo‘ihi Society recognizes supporters who have provided for HPA in their financial and/or estate planning. Formally established in 1998, this society is named for the 400,000 year old seamount (submerged volcano) growing steadily off the coast of southern Hawai‘i. Like our Lo‘ihi Society members, it is a vibrant ocean oasis that sustains a vast ecosystem. To learn more, contact the Alumni Office at alumni@hpa.edu or 808-881-4077.

HPA employee giving

In addition to the ways to give listed above, HPA employees can also elect to give via payroll deduction. Employees should contact scantyne@hpa.edu in the HPA Business Office to establish payroll giving.

Gifts in honor or memory

Gifts to HPA can be made in honor or in memory of an individual, such as a classmate, former teacher or coach, or family member. When we receive such gifts, we contact the honoree or their family to inform them of the gift. If you would like to make a tribute gift, please include a note with your mailed donation or in the comments on the online giving form. These gifts support HPA’s operating budget, or you may designate them for a specific purpose.

Match your gift

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please check with your human resources department. Some large employers provide very generous matches. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
