Your membership with Ke Kukui Foundation goes to support the organizational programs. These programs are doors of opportunities for our youth to learn about the Hawaiian/Polynesian culture and to give them a safe space to gather.
Ke Kukui Foundation's home base is located in the Portland Metro area. However, our regional community reaches throughout the entire Pacific Northwest. With your membership, you will help our efforts to expand our reach and also receive benefits for Ke Kukui Foundation's events and activities.
We thank you for making a difference in our journey to continue the work and legacy of founder, "Aunty Deva" Yamashiro. Our late Lady Of Aloha had a passion to plant seeds of aloha and through everyone she came in contact with. Through her visions and dedication & your support, Ke Kukui Foundation will be able to continue her gracious work and continue to make a difference in the lives of our keiki.
