WASHINGTON PLACE FOUNDATION
in 1909, Queen Lili`uokalani executed a deed of trust, to establish an institution dedicated to the welfare of orphaned Hawaiian children. At this time she also expressed a vision for the future of Washington Place following her death - that it become a place where the Hawaiian language and music would be preserved.
Washington Place Foundation was established to perpetuate the Hawaiian language, music and culture following Queen Lili`uokalani's vision. The goal of Washington Place foundation is the preservation of the National Historic Landmark Washington Place so that we may provide a place of learning and a sanctuary of healing for the people of, and visitors to, Hawai`i.
