Matthews Alive Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit Corporation
Our primary purpose is to produce an annual festival to raise funds for local non-profit groups and to benefit the greater Matthews community.
Matthews Alive both promotes and supports volunteerism in the Matthews community. Chances are, if you see an individual working at the Matthews Alive Festival, they are a volunteer. From our game booths to beverage trailers to our trash collection crew, volunteers are the heart of the festival. The volunteers represent different area non-profit groups that have applied for the opportunity to support the festival. These non-profit groups provide volunteers to work their assignment for the duration of the festival.
Following the festival, after the festival expenses are paid, the net proceeds are distributed to these organizations. To date, Matthews Alive, Inc. has contributed over $1,600,000 back into our local community.
