Ralph’s Community Contribution
Every year on September 1, Ralph’s shoppers who designate the Amigos de Bolsa Chica as their Community Contribution partner are required to re-register for the new term. When you register Amigos as your Community Contribution Partner with Ralph’s, Amigos receives a portion of the money you spend when you use your Rewards Card.
Whether it’s your first time or you’re renewing, go to https://customer.ralphs.com/Login.php. If you already have an account, sign in. If you don’t have an account, create one in a few short steps. Once you sign in, click on Community Rewards. Then click on enroll, and type in “Amigos de Bolsa Chica”. Click on search and Amigos address will pop up. Click the button next to the address, then click to save the changes – and you are done until next September. Renewing does not affect your Ralph’s Rewards points.
Ralph’s Rewards card members do not need to be members of Amigos to participate with this program, so please encourage friends and other family members to sign up too.
The activities of the Amigos de Bolsa Chica are supported entirely from dues, private donations, grants and fund-raisers. Like any organization or business, the Amigos must meet the costs of staff payroll, utilities, office rent, insurance, educational materials and a myriad of other expenses that are necessary to fulfill our pledge to acquire, preserve and restore the Bolsa Chica, and to educate people about the importance of wetlands. With the opening of the newly restored wetland, public education will become our principal activity. You can help inform and educate the public, young and old, about the value of wetlands by joining the Amigos de Bolsa Chica. All contributions to Amigos de Bolsa Chica are tax-deductible (FIN 33-0752003) as allowed by law under IRS Code Section 501(c)3.
