WHY WE FUNDRAISE
Hoʻolauleʻa is our biggest fundraiser and attributes to over 75% of our giving budget for the following school year. All proceeds from Hoʻolauleʻa go towards various student enrichment grants, scholarships, teacher appreciation activations, ʻohana engagement and more. Every dollar you spend during this virtual event will benefit our Kamehameha Schools Kapālama haumāna, kumu and ʻohana.
Every year ATP provides grants supporting student enrichment activities not covered by Kamehameha Schools. These include hūakaiʻs for classes and clubs, and extra curricular activites. The more we raise the more we give back to enrich our haumāna's educational experience.
Another portion of our ATP General fund each year goes to supporting scholarships for graduating seniors. In partnership with the Pauahi Foundation, we award students who demonstrate "Hoʻihi aku, Hoʻihi mai" - the giving and receiving of respect.
It's important that we strengthen our KSK ʻohana through activities outside of school. A portion of our funds support our ATP Reps who work to create engaging activities in the areas of Culture, Social, Education, and Community Service.
Hoʻolauleʻa is the only fundraising event for the KS Kapālama ATP and all proceeds go to support student enrichment grants and educational activities above and beyond what the school provides.
In a typical year, nearly 1,500 volunteers including students, families and staff join together to support this annual event.
Hoʻolauleʻa has three goals:
- To strengthen the KSK ‘ohana and our sense of community and place. It is the only event that involves all grade levels (K-12).
- To raise funds for student enrichment grants, covering anywhere from classroom
- To have fun together as a KSK ‘ohana
