Mahalo to our Business Partners

The Friends of Iolani Palace extends our deepest mahalo to all of our individual and corporate partners for their generosity. They have provided invaluable support to the Palace and its mission of protecting and perpetuating this historical landmark.

Mahalo to the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement (CNHA) for their recent matching fundraising campaign. CNHA’s call for funds to save Iolani Palace was heard and echoed by the Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) and the Native Hawaiian Hospitality Association (NaHHA) and raised more than $130,000.

Our recent face mask partnership with the generous Kawakami family at ‘IOLANI, Inc. helped raise much-needed funds for Iolani Palace to a total of $50,000. Mahalo for your support!

Cinnamon's Restaurant have been supporting Iolani Palace with a fundraiser at their Kailua location. For every order of a Moe Moe Loco Moco, Hawaiian Omelette, and Kanak Attack Plate, proceeds are donated to The Friends of Iolani Palace.

DTL, a Hawaiian strategy studio, created Actions of Aloha cards to encourage good deeds everyday in our community. 100% of the proceeds are donated to The Friends of Aloha.

Kaunamano Farms is offering a special promotional fundraising package through the farm’s “Eating with Impact” with $20 of each purchase donated to The Friends of Iolani Palace. Kamehameha Schools will match the amount Kaunamano Farm donates to Iolani Palace, up to $10,000.

A special mahalo nui goes out to Chris Tatum and the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) for funding the bee removal from the Palace and the restoration of the Coronation Pavilion, both of which began in August.
