Corporate Donation Programs Really Help the AARC!

As many of you may know, as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, we are continually looking for ways to earn cash to help fund continuing operations and new projects.

We have recently enrolled in the Amazon Smile program as well as the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program.  Each of these are great ways for folks to leverage their purchases to help generate funds for the club.

At present, we have just 3 households that have linked their Fred Meyer Rewards Card to the AARC.  What I’ve found is that if we were able to increase that to just 100 households, the contributions to the club through this program would pay for about 1 month of operating expenses for the club each year.  That’s a pretty significant impact!

The Amazon Smile program can be quite helpful as well and can certainly have an impact.

We ask you to please tie your Amazon account as well as your Fred Meyer Rewards to the AARC; ask your friends and family to do the same.  Here’s a link to our web page that speaks more to these important programs (  If you have any problems setting up your accounts, please contact Kent, KL5T at for assistance.  He’ll be glad to help!
