Give Aloha at Foodland to Help us Raise Funds!

Hoʻōla Nā Pua is proud to participate in Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program. From September 1-30, customers can make donations up to $249  at checkout.

How Give Aloha Works

Please note these very important details:

  • Customers must use their Maika`i Card to make a donation. Donations made without a Maika`i Card will not be matched.
  • Individuals must use their own Maika`i Card to make a donation. Individuals may not make donations with other people’s Maika’i cards. These donations will not be matched.
  • Customers may donate up to a cumulative total of $249 per organization. Donations exceeding $249 per organization will not be matched.
  • Applicable at Foodland, Sack N Save, and Foodland Farms stores statewide.
  • Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match a portion of each donation made with a Maika’i card!

How to Donate

  • At checkout, present your Maika’i card (or give your 10-digit Maika’i card number) and inform the cashier that you would like to make a donation to Hoʻōla Nā Pua. If you do not have a Maika’i account, you may establish one by telling the cashier you would like to do so; you will need to give a unique 10-digit number (such as your phone number).
  • Tell the cashier our organization’s 5-digit code: 78745
  • Tell the cashier how much you would like to donate. Your donation will be added to your grocery purchase total. You may donate up to $249 per organization (any amount in excess of $249 per organization will not be matched).
  • Be sure the cashier reaffirms our organization’s name and amount that you are donating.
  • Any donation must be made payable to Foodland, Sack N Save or Foodland Farms.
  • The name of our organization and the amount you donate will appear on your receipt.
  • Donor names will not be released to our organization. If you would like us to know of your gift, please contact us directly so that we may properly acknowledge your gift.
  • You may donate up to $249 per organization over the course of several store visits. You may make donations to more than one organization.

Matching Gift

The Western Union Foundation has generously donated $50,000 to add to Foodland’s gift of $250,000 to Hawaii non-profit organizations participating in Give Aloha this year. Therefore, the total gift that will be given to all participating organizations combined is $300,000!

Are These Donations Tax Deductible?

These contributions are tax deductible to the full 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. You may ask the cashier for a duplicate receipt.

How Will Matching Gifts be Calculated?

Matching Gifts will be calculated after the end of the program. Organizations will receive 100% of all customer donations given to their organization, plus their % of Foodland and the Western Union Foundation’s $300,000 matching gift. The portion of the matching gift that each organization will receive will be based on the total dollar amount of customer donations designated to that organization as a % of all customer donations received for all organizations.
