Matson’s Ka Ipu ‘Aina Program Is Great Resource to Fundraise & Clean Up the Community

Aloha –

Thank you for your interest in Matson Navigation Company’s Ka Ipu ‘Āina (container for the land) program. Over the past six years, this program has enjoyed much success in helping Hawaii’s non-profits raise funds, as well foster environmental stewardship and community responsibility for their volunteers.

Matson is proud to present our redesigned and improved program. Our intent was to make it simpler for non-profits to use, and yet provide more structure to prevent potential abuse of the system. A major change to the program is the introduction of an application process. Groups will now need to complete an application and be accepted into the program before they can conduct a clean-up project. The application is attached HERE and instruction sheets are attached HERE.

[Note from Maile: Through this program, Matson provides a container for groups to deposit trash into that is collected at community clean-up’s. Eligible non-profits who participate receive $1000 from Matson!]
