Donations can be sent to: The Matson Memorial Fund at Rose Drive Friends Church, 4221 Rose Drive, Yorba Linda, CA, 92886. There is also a link through the church website. The second fund for Matson's family has been established through the Helping Hearts 4 Friends Foundation, P.O. Box 23, Yorba Linda, CA., 92885. Contributions can also be made online.
