NOTE: Matson Giving is temporarily focusing all resources on addressing the highest priority community needs resulting directly from the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, current and pending commitments are being suspended pending review and responses to inquiries may be delayed.
The Matson Foundation aims to improve and support the communities it serves. The foundation focuses on culture and arts, civic and community programs, ocean resource conservation, human services, and education, as well as improving the quality of life in its employees’ communities.
The foundation seeks to support preschool through university programs including science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), as well as training and development in transportation careers. Priority is given to organizations or programs that enhance business development opportunities for the company, are actively supported by Matson employees, are sustainable, and have measurable results.
Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations benefiting communities that Matson serves are eligible to apply. The company’s community relations footprint extends to every Matson location, throughout AK and HI, with mainland donations focused in Long Beach and Oakland CA, Chicago IL, Tacoma WA, Savannah GA, and Phoenix AZ.
