You can make wishes come true! Our wish list contains items which we are not able to include in our annual budget at this time, but which will enhance our program, update or increase access to technology for students, or make tasks easier and more efficient for our staff. The wish list changes periodically, as some needs are filled and other needs arise. Check back often to see how you might help!

To fulfill a wish, please contact Advancement Department by email advancement@ipahawaii.org.

Landscape Maintenance Items

The Facilities staff can always make use of the following items: 4-stroke (lawnmower) oil; 2-stroke (chainsaw, line trimmer) oil; safety items (gloves, eye protection, etc.) for large groups of volunteers to use; spray bottles; paint rollers.


Items like these will supplement the Facilities staff inventory. It is particularly handy to have these items on-hand during volunteer work days. If you have questions about what to donate, please contact Shannon Vasilash at svasilash@ipahawaii.org
