Matthews is Giving. With hundreds of nonprofits in Matthews, the support for philanthropy is significant.
Matthews is Community: Through togetherness, whether familial or neighborly, recognizing and recovering the lost art of sharing the untold stories of the people around us.
Matthews is History: We embrace and explore the town’s rich history, celebrate our agricultural roots, reflect on our segregated past, and examine the uncharted growth carrying Matthews forward.
Matthews is Engaged: Local government is accessible to the people, for the people.
Matthews is Enriching: From environmental initiatives and personal hobbies to cultural activities, people enjoy learning and doing.
