This year, the Kamehameha Schools Class of 1972 is celebrating their 50th reunion in a way that exemplifies who they are – through giving. Former scholarship recipient, Donalei Linogon, shares the impact their generosity has had on her life. Because of the tremendous support of alumni and our community, we can keep Pauahi’s legacy alive by giving the gift of education, the gift of a future.

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.
