Give Aloha, Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program, was created in 1999 to honor Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan and continue his legacy of giving back to the community. Each year during the month of September, customers are encouraged to make a donation at Foodland to their favorite participating Hawaii non-profit organization. Each year, Foodland and the Western Union Foundation contribute more than $300,000 to match customer donations for all organizations combined. Since the program began in 1999, a total of more than $27.3 million has been raised for Hawaii’s charities.
How It Works:
During September, Maika’i members are invited to make donations up to $249 to their favorite participating Hawaii non-profit organization at checkout.
Donations to each organization are tracked, and Foodland’s matching gift is divided proportionately among all participating organizations based on customer donations to the organizations.
Organizations receive customer donations to their organization and Foodland’s matching gift by Oct. 31.
