Reid J.K. Richards Foundation

Aloha Kākou

The Reid J.K. Richards Foundation was established in 1999, in memory of Reid James Kamakaho'ohie Richards, who passed away following a courageous battle with lymphoma. At the time of his passing Reid was 33 years young and left behind a wife and two young children, ages 3 and 5.

The Reid J.K. Richards Foundation is a family foundation with the primary objective to provide the support necessary to aid grieving children and young adults who have lost a parent or primary caretaker through death. The loss of a parent or primary caretaker often results in financial hardship that can limit the potential achievements for many young people. To alleviate the financial burden, the Reid J.K. Richards Foundation has established the Kamakaho'ohie Scholarship.

The Kamakaho'ohie Scholarship will provide financial support to bereaved individuals up to the age of 25. The purpose of the scholarship is to help these young people in achieving their academic goals through financial assistance.

The board of directors of the Reid J.K. Richards Foundation are grateful for the opportunity to perpetuate the legacy of Reid J.K. Richards through the generosity of our family and friends who have participated in our annual golf tournament, attended our Gala, given cash contributions, and volunteered their time, skill, and expertise.

In closing, the board extends it fondest aloha and mahalo to all of you for your interest and support in our endeavors.

Malama Pono!
Reid J.K. Richards Foundation
