Kroger Community Rewards

The Kroger Community Rewards program has proven to be quite an effective fundraising tool for the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters (AWBB) organization.

The Kroger Company has dedicated $5 million to its Community Rewards Program, awarding $1,250,000 per quarter to participating organizations. Any participating organization could potentially earn up to $50,000 every three months! What a great way to fundraise, and the only thing you have to do is register for the Kroger Community Rewards program. You don’t have to sell anything, or buy anything other than what you’d buy anyway as Kroger shoppers presenting Plus Cards at checkout time. We can have our families and friends register as well!

However, it is required that participants re-register for the program every year.

Re-enrolling in the Kroger Community Rewards program is QUICK and EASY! Go to the Community Rewards page, review the information and select Enroll at the bottom. Use the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters number: 84007.

As everyone knows, times are tough and Kroger is pleased to be able to support local organizations through Kroger Community Rewards Program. Please don’t let rewards for the AWBB expire during 2010. If you have not done so to date, please RE-ENROLL in the program today and if you are a current Kroger shopper not yet enrolled, please consider ENROLLING today. Quick and easy fundraising.

From 2/1/2010 to 4/30/2010 AWBB earned $1,657.54 with 132 cards registered with the Kroger Community Rewards Program. This included purchases by members who signed up in the 124 stores in the Columbus, Ohio Division running from Columbus, Ohio to the Michigan border along with a few stores in Michigan and West Virginia

As a side bar from the literature I received from the Kroger Community Rewards Program, a music booster group with 350 members raised over $8500.00 in one quarter last year.

Meijer Community Rewards

As a non-profit organization, we are always looking for ways to help fund our operations without putting a large burden on the people we serve and without increasing our administrative costs. We have taken advantage of the opportunity to participate in a program offered by Meijer. We are now re-enrolled in Meijer Community Rewards.

Meijer Community Rewards allows us to raise funds to meet our organization’s goals quickly and easily.

Here’s how you can participate.

  • We need you, our supporter, to join Meijer Community Rewards. It’s free and can be done online, in store by applying for a Meijer Credit Card or by calling 1-800-962-7011.
  • The Meijer 1 Card is a non-financial card that should be used with cash or a PIN-based debit card to link your purchases to your Meijer Community Rewards account.
  • If you already have a Meijer Credit Card, just call 1-800-962-7011 to add Meijer Community Rewards to your Meijer Credit Card account. Then simply use your Meijer Credit Card or pay with cash or your PIN-based debit card with your swiped Meijer 1 Card whenever you shop at Meijer. Use it for Meijer gas, food, clothing, toys, house wares, jewelry, hardware, garden and more! The Band Boosters will automatically receive a percentage of your purchase totals, with double the rewards when you use your linked Meijer Credit Card!

This program can make a wonderful difference in enabling us to serve Anthony Wayne Band students in grades 5-12! Meijer Community Rewards gives rewards on over 150,000 items! Best of all, the program automatically earns money whenever you shop, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The sooner you join, the sooner we’ll begin receiving rewards! Please apply today! Our organization number is 666201.

Thank you for your support.
