Together for HPA.
The impact of your gift
Tuition covers 80 percent of the cost of the HPA experience. The remaining 20 percent is possible because of generous support from alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends. For independent schools like HPA, a strong tradition of annual giving translates into the financial wherewithal to offer competitive faculty salaries, rigorous and diverse courses of instruction, vibrant arts programs, competitive sports teams, and the list goes on.
This is our moment to turn aloha into action
Thousands of us in Hawai‘i and around the world love HPA. But did you know that only five percent of alumni and less than half of parents currently make a gift to the HPA Fund each year? Every great school needs a network of passionate supporters. From this point forward, we invite our beautiful HPA ‘ohana to become more involved and to help elevate the school we love. HPA needs us. Together, we celebrate what HPA is today, and we make it even stronger for the future. Thank you for your gift.
