Three Ways to Give at NO Cost to You!
Below are three different ways to shop and purchase everyday essentials while giving back to our bears at the same time, at no cost to you! We are now enrolled in Kroger Community Rewards, AmazonSmile and iGive. Read below for more information on each giving program and learn how you can select us as your charity to receive these rewards!
Kroger Community Rewards
We are excited to now be partnering with Kroger and their community rewards program! Here’s how it works: This program makes fundraising easy by donating to local organizations based on the shopping you do every day. If you shop with Kroger, you can link your Kroger card to our organization! All you have to do is swipe your Shopper’s Card with every purchase. Any transactions moving forward using the Shopper’s Card number associated with your digital account will be applied to the program, at no added cost to you.
To get started:
- Create a digital account.
If you already have a digital account, simply link your Shopper’s Card to your account so that all transactions apply toward the organization you choose.
- Link your Card to an organization.
Selecting the organization that you wish to support is as simple as updating the Kroger Community Rewards selection on your digital account.
- Sign in to your digital account.
- Search for our organization: American Bear Association
- Enter our NPO number: BN870
- Select the appropriate organization from the list and click “Save”.

AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. AmazonSmile is available at smile.amazon.com on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones. When you shop with AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Since November 2022, we have earned $2,000 from our supporters alone, so 0.5% adds up quickly! If you have not signed up for AmazonSmile yet, to support us, all you have to do is follow the prompts!
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations from your future eligible AmazonSmile purchases. We will remember your selected charity whenever you shop at smile.amazon.com or with AmazonSmile activated in the Amazon Shopping app, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation for your selected charity. To support us, simply search for the American Bear Association!
If you are already supporting an organization and wish to choose our organization, simply visit smile.amazon.com/change, or tap “AmazonSmile” within the Settings menu in the Amazon Shopping app on your phone and select “Change your charity”. Search for the American Bear Association. Your AmazonSmile purchases made after changing your charity will count towards your newly selected charity.
