About Us

Our Impact

Within a generation of twenty-five years, Kamehameha Schools envisions a thriving lāhui where our learners achieve postsecondary educational success, enabling good life and career choices.

KS’ impact has been far-reaching throughout the pae ʻāina with over 61,000 learner experiences through campus and community-based programs in fiscal year 2019-20. On average, KS spends $400M each year to create educational opportunities for Native Hawaiian learners.

Approximately, 97% of the educational spending is funded by KS’ endowment. The commercial real estate portfolio accounts for 31% of KS’ educational spend. While the portfolio provides the financial resources to support our mission, it also helps to activate communities, grow the local economy, and provide educational opportunities to develop Hawai‘i’s future leaders. See the latest annual report for details.
