Give Aloha At Foodland, Share Love for Hōkūleʻa & Crew

Polynesian Voyaging Society is participating in Give Aloha, Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program. The program honors Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan, and continues his legacy of giving back to the community.

How It Works

From September 1-30, customers are invited to make donations of up to $249 to participating Hawaii non-profit organizations at checkout. Donations are accepted at any Foodland, Sack N Save or Foodland Farms checkout. Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match a portion of each donation. Individuals must use their own Maika’i number to make a donation. Donations made without a Maika’i number will not be matched.

How to Donate

  1. Shop at Foodland or Sack N Save!
  2. Show your Maika’i card to the cashier at checkout.
  3. Tell the cashier our code (77673) and the amount of your donation (up to $249).
  4. Review your receipt to confirm the following appears: – Our organization name (PVS) – Your donation amount – Your Maikaʻi number

Acknowledgement of Your Donation

Donor names will not be released to our organization. Therefore, if you would like to us to know of your gift, please contact us directly so that we may properly acknowledge your gift. You may ask the cashier for a duplicate receipt to submit to us.

Are These Contributions Tax Deductible?

These contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please save your store receipt for tax purposes since it will be the only record you will have of your donation(s).

Matching Gift

Matching gifts will be determined at the end of the program. Our organization will receive 100% of all customer donations given to us, plus each donation made with a Maika’i card, will be partially matched by a gift from Foodland and the Western Union Foundation.
