134th Annual Founder's Day

This year marks the 190th anniversary of the birth of Princess Pauahi. Let us celebrate her life and recognize the profound impact she has had on generations of Native Hawaiians. Pauahi Foundation is guided by Princess Pauahiʻs vision of a thriving lāhui where learners achieve postsecondary educational success, enabling positive life choices and wise career decisions.

When you answer the call to endow post-high scholarships through the Pauahi Foundation, 100% of the funds donated go directly to support our programs.

The mission of the Pauahi Foundation is to support the mission of Kamehameha Schools by seeking and developing new and diverse sources of income to support the ever-increasing educational needs and goals of people of Hawaiian ancestry.
