Mauka to Makai Match

In Support of the Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Community


The Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Community was named in honor of the parents of its lead donors, Dr. Thomas ’63 and Mi Kosasa, and his siblings Paul, Susan and Gloria ’68 Gainsley.

Thanks to the generosity and vision of the Kosasa family for the grades 2 – 5 project, Punahou is able to provide a matching opportunity for individual donors, offering a limited number of premier naming opportunities.

The Mauka to Makai Match supports the School’s vision for sustainable, flexible indoor and outdoor learning environments, and the Kosasa family has provided a wonderland of opportunity for generations of students to come.

  • With your gift, you can name one of 28 studio classrooms within the Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Community.

This naming opportunity will return to a $500,000 opportunity on July 1, 2019
