What is the Community Giving Card Program?

  • It is an easy way for your school, church or favorite non-profit to raise money by selling reloadable Community Giving Cards to your supporters.
  • Supporters then help earn your organization money every time they reload their card and shop for groceries at Albertsons or Safeway. *

Are there any hidden costs for my organization to enroll?

  • There are no hidden fees. The only cost is the purchase amount of the initial gift card order.
  • You choose how many cards you want, and the initial amount loaded on each card ($5 or$10 per card).
  • Your supporters then purchase the cards from you at face value and decide how much to reload onto the card (up to $500), as well as how often.

*Cash back rewards are calculated every four weeks. As long as a minimum level is achieved, your organization will receive a check each month. If the minimum level is not achieved, then your totals will carry over to the next period, until the minimum level is achieved.

How Does The Program Work?

Your organization enrolls for initial account set up and card order.

Your organization sells the preloaded cards at face value ($5 or $10)to your supporters to start using at Albertsons or Safeway.

Supporters reload and reuse their Community Giving Card as needed.

Your organization then earns up to a 5% reward every four weeks. *

It's really that simple!

Choose a Reward Plan

3-Tier Plan

  • Your reward percentage is dependent on how much was reloaded during the reward period. *
  • This 3-tier reward plan is great for smaller organizations that would like to earn their reward payments more frequently.
  • As your fundraising program grows, your reward level will grow.

Fixed Level Plan:

  • Payment only occurs when a minimum of $5,000 has been reloaded. *
  • This option is great for those organizations that are a bit larger and want to ensure the maximum reward level of 5%

Do I have to use a new card each time I need to reload funds?

How do I reload my card?

Reloading a gift card can be done at Customer Service or Check stand prior to making any grocery purchases.

The maximum card balance is $500 at any given time. There is also a separate limit of a combined total for all reloads of $500 during a 24-hour period.

Do I have to use cash for this reloading transaction?

No. You can pay with cash, check, credit or debit card.

What if I want to change my option plan at any time?

Yes you may change from one plan to another however there may be a 30-day grace period.

How often will my organization receive reward money?

Proceeds are distributed every four weeks. Balances will roll over to the next period for those Organizations who did not meet the disbursement minimum.

How often will my organization receive account statements?

Your organization will receive an email statement detailing all reloads by gift card number every 4 to 6 weeks. In the fixed level option plan, the reload balance will be rolled over to the next month. We highly recommend that the organization keep records of which card they sell to which supporter so that if a supporter's card is lost or stolen Albertsons can deactivate the card balance and re-issue a replacement card. We can coordinate this deactivation with the organization's coordinator.
