Maurice and Joanne Sullivan were great supporters of the museum—as the Maurice J. Sullivan Family Gallery of Chinese Art attests. And their daughter Kitty Wo is the museum’s new chair of the Board of Trustees. So it is doubly meaningful for HoMA to be a part of Give Aloha, Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program, which was created in 1999 to honor Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan.

That means throughout September, you can make a donation of up to $249 to your favorite participating Hawai‘i nonprofit organization—hopefully that is HoMA!— when you check out at a Foodland with your Maka‘i card. HoMA’s organization ID code is 77066.


Foodland tracks all the donations then gives a matching gift that is divided proportionately among all the participating organizations.

So head to your nearest Foodland for your locally grown produce, poke and Labor Day barbecue goodies (have you tried Foodland executive chef Keone Chang’s delicious Chef Made Loaded Potato Dip?!) with your Maika‘i card and Give Aloha to HoMA by telling the cashier you would like to make a donation to 77066—even one dollar makes a difference to our programs serving the community. (Note: Only donations made with a Maika‘i account will receive a partial matching gift, so don’t forget your card, or if you don’t have one, you can sign up on the spot with the cashier.)
