Our Mission

The will and codicil of King Lunalilo charges the justices of the Supreme Court of Hawaiʻi to nominate and appoint three trustees to serve the William Charles Lunalilo Trust Estate.

The first trustees were appointed on March 16, 1877 and were Sanford B. Dole, E. O. Hall, and John Mott-Smith. Twenty-three persons have subsequently served as trustees.

Trustees


Presently, King Lunalilo Trust & Home is led by Kamani B. Kualā‘au, Harvey H. McInerny, Jr., Sunshine P. Topping and Daniel Goya. Our current regular Trustees are joined by three voluntary Advisory Trustees: Naleen N. Andrade, MD, Michael J. Chun, PhD, and Laura Smith. The Advisory Trustees have been instrumental in the development of our Kauhale Kūpuna Strategic Plan and its successful implementation. They provide the diversity, depth and breadth of community-based leadership as well as expertise, experiences, knowledge and compassion for elders in the Hawaiian community. Our Trustees are joined by an executive and administrative team and a dedicated staff in serving kūpuna.
