Oregon Genealogical Society

Support Oregon Genealogical Society!

There are now two ways to support OGS that won't cost you a penny. Your regular purchases at smile.amazon.com and at Fred Meyer stores may benefit us if you select Oregon Genealogical Society, Inc. as the organization you support.
 
AmazonSmile
  • AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know.
  • Same products, same prices, same service.
  • Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support OGS every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Oregon Genealogical Society, Inc.. 
 
Get started with these easy steps:
1.) Visit smile.amazon.com. It’s just like shopping on amazon.com.
2.) Sign in. Simply use your existing Amazon credentials. If you don’t have an account, you can create a new one.
3.) Start shopping! After you’ve chosen your charity, your shopping experience will be the same as it is on the Amazon website. And there’s no extra cost for you at checkout! 
4.) Please remember to shop our smile.amazon.com link every time. Purchases on the main Amazon.com site do not support Best Friends. To help remember, bookmark our smile.amazon.com link.
5.) Spread the word! Once you’ve checked out, Amazon makes it easy to spread the news with your friends and family by giving you an option to share on Facebook and Twitter. Please be sure to let everyone know you've supported OGS by including the #StartWithASmile hashtag.
 
 
Fred Meyer Community Rewards
 
Where Shopping & Giving Unite
Support your favorite nonprofit just by shopping at Fred Meyer with your Rewards Card. We’re donating $2.6 million each year - up to $650,000 each quarter - to the local schools, community organizations and nonprofits of your choice. All you have to do is link your Rewards Card and scan it every time you shop at Fred Meyer. Click here to link your Fred Meyer Rewards card. 
 
Are you a Fred Meyer Customer?
Whenever you use your Rewards Card when shopping at Freddy’s, you will be helping that organization earn a donation from Fred Meyer. It doesn't cost you anything and does not take away from your Rewards you earn. If you do not have a Rewards Card, you can sign up for one at the Customer Service Desk of any Fred Meyer store.
 
Thank you so much for helping us maintain our library and educational programs by shopping on AmazonSmile and with your Fred Meyer Rewards.
