Help enrich the lives of our kūpuna by supporting our efforts to provide quality, compassionate care, infused with Hawaiian values, cultural traditions and aloha.

As Hawai‘i’s elderly population continues to grow, we are mindful of the fact that many kūpuna of Hawaiian ancestry would not have access to care if not for Lunalilo Home. Now, more than ever, we welcome your contributions, which will help us meet the growing need and further serve as a community resource for Hawai‘i’s seniors and their families.

The operations of Lunalilo Home are funded through a variety of sources: the investments of the trust established by King Lunalilo to benefit the less fortunate of Hawaiian ancestry, with preference given to kūpuna; residents’ fees; fundraising events; charitable donations; volunteers; in-kind contributions; and estate and planned giving.

We ask that you give generously to enable us to further serve kūpuna and their families.


“Once my mother transferred to Lunalilo Home, we could see immediate changes to her health, demeanor and spirits. We feel very fortunate that we found the perfect place for her.” – Resident Family Member

“My husband has early-onset Alzeheimer’s Disease and participated five days a week at the Lunalilo Home Adult Day Care. The staff and director are professional and trustworthy and, most importantly, exude compassion and kindness in all that they do.” – Wife of Adult Day Care Participant

Charitable Contributions

The generosity of our donors enables us to provide financial subsidies for our Native Hawaiian residents who would otherwise be unable to afford the fees for our services. As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization, we encourage individuals and companies to give generously, knowing that their contributions are making a tremendous difference in the lives and well-being of our kūpuna. Monetary gifts may be donated online as well as via check or money order. Checks may be made payable to Lunalilo Home and mailed to 501 Kekāuluohi Street, Honolulu, HI 96825.

Volunteer at Lunalilo Home

We invite you to share your aloha and spend time with our kūpuna. Individuals and groups are welcomed to volunteer their talents – whether it is performing Hawaiian music and hula, creating floral arrangements, assisting with office and administrative functions, or simply “talking story” and playing games with our residents. Larger community service projects may include painting portions of the facility or assisting in landscaping projects. Contact us to find out more or sign up to become a volunteer.
