Three Ways to Support BCS at No Cost to You
By now, hopefully you know that one of the things that makes BCS such a great school is our PTA. In addition to providing volunteer support and organizing community events, the PTA provides grants to the school and our teachers for a long list of programs, supplies and equipment.
But did you know that the BCS PTA could raise its entire annual budget at no cost to our community if one family member of every BCS student did each of the three things listed below?
Link your Fred Meyer Rewards Card
Fred Meyer's Community Rewards program is an easy way to support our students and teachers at no cost to you when you shop at Fred Meyer. Simply link your Rewards Card to the BCS PTA, and each time you shop at Freddy's, they will automatically make a contribution to the school!
Note that Fred Meyer requires that you re-link your nonprofit every year, so even if you've linked your card in the past, please do it again today.
Here's how to sign up:
1) Visit Fred Meyer's Community Rewards Program at https://www.fredmeyer.com/account/communityrewards/
3) Search for "Beverly Cleary PTA" and click "enroll"
It's that easy!

Shop at Amazon Smile
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
To give our school a kick-back on all of your purchases while shopping on Amazon you need to:
1) go to smile.amazon.com and login to your regular Amazon account,
2) Link your account to our charity ID here: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/93-6039340
3) remember to go to the smile.amazon.com webpage to order off Amazon.
It can be hard to remember to go to the smile.amazon.com site to order off Amazon. If you bookmark smile.amazon.com it will help you remember. People who use the Chrome browser can install a plugin that will automatically redirect all amazon.com pages to smile.amazon.com.
Shop with Scrip!
Hundreds of retailers participate in Scrip, a nationwide fundraising program for non-profits. Here's how it works: The PTA purchases gift cards to common grocery stores, shops and restaurants at a discount, which we sell to you at full price. The difference earned goes to the school for learning supplies and student programs. Learn more.
