Support the Foundation

he Friends of Liljestrand Foundation support the exceptional spirit of Liljestrand House, a National and Hawaiian landmark on Mount Tantalus overlooking Honolulu.

Designed by Vladimir Ossipoff and built for Betty and Howard Liljestrand, the house is recognized as an outstanding example of Ossipoff’s work and mid-20th century modern architecture.

Liljestrand Foundation has made the Liljestrand House available to the community for many years by opening the space to a variety of charitable, cultural and educational organizations. Since 2010, the Foundation collaborated with thirty local and global non-profit organizations on more than eighty programs and events, including tours, meetings, cultural programs, mediation sessions and conferences. The Foundation also produces an annual calendar of mission-driven programs in architecture and design, civic engagement, East-West understanding, education, environmental conservation and public health. Support from the Friends makes these programs possible, and contributes toward the ongoing stewardship of the property.

Liljestrand Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible.
