Shop at Fred Meyer and Earn Donations for the Oregon Chapter!

Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on their customers' direction. 

Here's how the Fred Meyer Rewards Program benefits the Oregon Chapter:

  • Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to the Scleroderma Foundation Oregon Chapter at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. It's easy!
  • You can search for us by our name, Scleroderma Foundation or by our non-profit number: 93076. Our organization is under “Scleroderma Foundation Oregon Chapter.” #93076. 
  • Every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you will be helping the Oregon Chapter earn a donation!
  • You still earn your personal Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates just as you do now.
  • If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.
