Here are some ways that you can direct corporate giving to the Baron Academic Foundation at no cost to you!
Start your online shopping from the Ziggedy site, or use the handy Ziggedy Reminder extension in your browser. You must have Ziggedy enabled on the shopping website (an icon will show) before you put items in your cart. Click through here to start.
Link your Ralphs card to the Baron Academic Foundation once each school year, starting in September. A percentage of your purchases will be sent to the Foundation quarterly. No information is given to us about who our supporting households are or what they buy, and there is no reduction in the other benefits you enjoy with the Ralphs card. You can link your card either online (instructions are on this page) [Quick hint: if you can log in to the Ralphs.com site, click on your name to get to your account info, then scroll down to Community Rewards to Re-Enroll] OR by calling 800-443-4438.
Instead of shopping at Amazon, go to Amazon Smile, their charity-supporting version. The products and prices are the same as at the regular Amazon site, as is your account, but you choose a non-profit (one time, although you can go back and change it in your account at any time) that will receive a percentage of each purchase. Start shopping at smile.amazon.com and choose Baron Academic Foundation as your charity!
Scrip is gift cards that you buy at face value and spend like normal -- but the companies sell the gift cards at a discount and the difference (rebate percentage) is a donation to a school program. FVRR (band) manages scrip for all FVHS programs. FVRR explains here how the scrip program works and how you can purchase scrip to benefit Foundation. After establishing an account by going in person on a Saturday morning you will have an opportunity to purchase scrip online as well, including downloading instantly to your phone while you are in a store, or re-filling a gas station card when you need it.
