Mālama Mānoa was founded in January 1992 as the Mānoa Historic Preservation Committee at a Mānoa Neighborhood Board meeting. In September, the name “Mālama o Mānoa” was adopted (but changed recently to Mālama Mānoa). The charter of incorporation as a non-profit corporation in the State of Hawaii was granted in December 1992. In March 1993 the Internal Revenue Service approved Mālama Mānoa’s application as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, which also allows tax-deductible contributions. Mary M. Cooke was elected as the charter President. Charter Directors were Lowell Angell, Thomas Heinrich, Violet Hiranaka, Agnes Hirotsu, Gerald Honda, Linda LeGrande, Helen Nakano, Charles Pearson, and Bertha Ueoka. Membership, while primarily aimed at residents of Mānoa, is free and is open to anyone who supports the mission of Mālama Mānoa. Starting with 37 people who attended the first meeting, there are now over 3,700 registered members. Join Now! Visit http://malamaomanoa.org/become-a-member-of-malama-manoa/ to join - membership is free!

Mission: The mission of Mālama Mānoa is to promote community; celebrate our cultural diversity and heritage; and preserve, protect, and enhance the special qualities of historic Mānoa Valley.

Many folks assume the College Hills tract was named for the University of Hawaii. In fact, the subdivision predates UH-Mānoa by a decade. It was actually named for Punahou School, then known as O‘ahu College, which originally owned the land. The University didn’t move into the valley until 1908, and its first permanent building, Hawai‘i Hall, was built in 1912.
