Hawai‘i Pacific University, the state’s leading independent university, is an international learning community with students from the U.S. and around the world.
The LaFrance Foundation, a 501c (3) non-profit organization was established to provide scholarships for students of Kauai who has financial hardships. Since 2009, we have successfully put 20 kids through school. The foundation was founded in memory of LaFrance Kapaka-Arboleda of Anahola, Kauai. Born on November 13, 1946, she was a respected cultural resource and very active in the Hawaiian community. LaFrance was dedicated to many public causes including building homes for underprivileged local residents and helping mothers with special needs children. She was a champion of the underprivileged and a defender of those who could not defend themselves.
