Ways to Give & Volunteer

What do you value most about HPA's impact on students, the community, or the larger world? Maybe a teacher helped spark your career interests. Maybe the Energy Lab inspires your child. Maybe you appreciate financial aid that opens doors to opportunity. Whatever you value most, you can be sure that philanthropy and volunteerism are fundamental to the outcome—and to the success of HPA students—this year and every year.

Mahalo for staying connected, getting involved, and giving back.


Volunteer for HPA


We need a broad coalition of leaders and volunteers who support our students and keep the HPA 'ohana strong. If you'd like to help as an event or class volunteer in your region or on campus, let us know at

'Ohana Association

The HPA ‘Ohana Association is a volunteer organization of parents, friends, and community partners dedicated to supporting and enriching HPA’s vision, programs, and activities that benefit all members of the school community. All HPA families automatically belong to the ‘Ohana Association. Learn more: 'Ohana Association


The HPA Fund: Immediate Impact

Each year, the HPA Fund represents the broadest and most immediate focus of our fundraising. When you give, you help deliver a unique educational experience that has transformed thousands of young lives. Joining together through the Fund, donors make an enormous collective impact on our students and teachers. We are grateful to all who participate.


Endowment: Long-term Support for Mission

Over the years, alumni, parents, and friends have contributed toward a modest endowment at HPA. These gifts are invested (rather than spent), providing a consistent source of income, year by year.

As we look to the future, we seek to grow the HPA endowment to give greater support to our mission and to ambitious new initiatives. Donors to the endowment will strengthen financial aid, faculty development, and curricular innovation in such areas as environmental sustainability, residential life, Hawaiian studies, outdoor education, and service learning. To learn more, contact Hannah Candelario, director of advancement,


Gifts to Campus and Facilities

While a portion of the HPA budget focuses on maintenance and upkeep every year, there are times when HPA embarks on larger building projects that have significant impact on students, teachers, and program. Guided by the 2016 strategic plan, HPA is currently engaged in a campus master planning process. Key Upper School needs have been identified, with others to follow, while analysis proceeds at the Lower and Middle Schools. To learn more, contact Hannah Candelario, director of advancement,


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 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.


Financial and Estate Planning

Our planned giving program allows donors to make significant gifts to HPA while also achieving their financial or estate planning goals.
