This year, the Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra is participating in Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program, Give Aloha. This program honors Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan, and continues his legacy of giving back to the community.
Friends of the orchestra are encouraged to help maximize the impact of donations by participating in this year’s program. Your participation in the program directly supports the Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra’s mission to present live, high-quality orchestral music to audiences on Hawai‘i Island, and to further the musical education of our island’s youth.
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 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.
This year, Foodland will match each donation with at least $250,000 for all organizations combined. The matching gift will be divided proportionately among all participating organizations.
Use Code 78508 to Donate
At checkout, present your Maika’i card (or provide your number) and inform the cashier that you would like to make a donation to Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra, code number 78508. If you do not have a Maika’i card/number, you may request to establish one. Your donation will be added to your grocery purchase total. You may donate up to $249 per organization; any portion exceeding $249 will not be matched. The amount you donate and the name of our organization will appear on your receipt. Any donation must be payable to Foodland or Sack N Save.
Acknowledgment of Your Donation
Donor names will not be released to our organization. Therefore, if you would like 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 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(s).
How Matching Gifts Will Be Calculated
Matching gifts will be calculated at the end of the program. Our organization will receive 100% of all customer donations given to us, plus our percentage of Foodland’s $250,000 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.
