Thanks to you, we did it!
Due to the overwhelming support of generous donors from our community, the Campaign for Hawai‘i's Children has exceeded its $30 million goal and has officially raised $35,082,930 in support of the Phase I renovation and expansion of Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children.
The future of Kapi‘olani has never been brighter. Construction on Kapi‘olani's Phase I renovation of our Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Building is underway and we are on track to complete construction of our new building by March 2016.
Co-chaired by Dee Jay Mailer and Bert Kobayashi, the Campaign for Hawai‘i's Children will fund the first phase of a multi-year master plan to entirely rebuild Kapi‘olani. As a not-for-profit hospital, Kapi‘olani relies on philanthropic support to help carry out our vital mission. With the help of our community, we can make even greater advancements to improve health care access and quality of life for all of Hawaii's keiki and their families.

Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children is a not-for-profit hospital dedicated to delivering exceptional and often life-saving medical care to women and children right here in Hawai‘i. This remarkable care is provided in a facility that needs to expand to better accommodate 21st century medical advances. A renovation and expansion is long overdue and essential to the healthy future of Hawai‘i’s most precious resource – its children. But we can’t do it alone. Please give to support this important project. With its $30 million goal, The Campaign for Hawai'i's Children is the largest philanthropic effort in Hawai'i for the health care of our keiki and is focused on the first phase of a multi-phased renewal of Kapi'olani.
On December 17, Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, presented a gift of $250,000 to Kapi‘olani Health Foundation in support of the Campaign for Hawai'i's Children.
