PIDF turns 25! April 19, 2022

Join us in celebrating 25 years of living Hawaiian values, serving Hawaiʻi’s families. Partners in Development Foundation started off with a few Hawaiians talking story with a shared purpose to educate, connect, and provide more opportunities for their lāhui. By working together, each of us, from our friends and supporters, staff and families, kūpuna to the youngest of keiki, holds kuleana to balance the future wellbeing of Hawai‘i. 

While the people and programs of PIDF have evolved throughout the years, one thing remains true: to inspire and equip families and communities for success and service using timeless Native Hawaiian values and traditions.

For the past 25 years, supporters like you have powered the mission of Partners in Development Foundation allowing our team to strengthen families across the state of Hawaiʻi. Through your generosity, we have transformed the lives of over 125,000 keiki and adults realizing a more sustainable future for our islands. We invite you to renew your commitment today!

“For me it’s a big blessing. It’s a big opportunity to learn and explore new things and to teach my son, and also be his first teacher. I learned a lot of life lessons and parenting lessons. There are not enough words to explain about the program. It’s great. It’s awesome. Thank you very much!” 

–Nati, a Ka Paʻalana parent

We are motivated by knowing that our communities will achieve greater vibrancy through the support and care we share with our ‘ohana. Our programs and staff equip families and communities for success by providing them with the foundational tools to meet life’s challenges–– welcoming our caregivers, keiki, and youth as they are without judgment.

“If a youth comes and they’re struggling, if they’re just having a really hard day, if they’re just having a mental health episode, we can just stop (our work). We can walk. We can talk. We can just hang out on the farm instead of needing to finish a task at hand.”

–Zachary Huang, Kupa ʻAina Director

We are reaching out to ask you to become a monthly donor of $25.00 in celebration of our 25th year serving Hawaiʻi. Your thoughtfulness in providing a monthly or one-time gift gives us faith that all communities in Hawaiʻi will continue to receive the free programming and vital support needed. Help us reach our goal of $25,000 by visiting www.pidf.org/donation or mailing in your contribution to 2040 Bachelot Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96817, today!

By working together, each of us, from our friends and supporters, staff and families to the youngest of keiki holds kuleana in balancing the future wellbeing of Hawai‘i. We are an integral part of the restorative process to care for the people and places of our islands. 

Thank you in advance for your support. Your thoughtfulness gives us hope, and your generosity gives us the strength to continue our work for years to come.

E ola ka ʻohana!

may the family thrive!
