Did you know that there are a number of ways that you can support the mission of FHFG without spending a penny? Do you shop online with Amazon? If so, select FHFG as your AmazonSmilecharity. Shop locally at Fred Meyer? Set up FHFG as your charity of choice. Have a birthday or other event that people want to celebrate, but you don’t need gifts? Set up a Facebook fundraiser. Have lots of recyclables? Put them in an FHFG recycle bag and drop them off at your local BottleDrop. No need to go inside anymore!
Are you tired of going into the BottleDrop location, smelling that smell, waiting in line, then having to touch all of those disgusting sticky cans and bottles? If so, pick up an FHFG BottleDrop bag, put your cans/bottles in it and then without going inside the BottleDrop building, scan the bag drop it down the chute, and you’re on your way. That’s EASY!
You can take your refundable cans and bottles to the Oregon BottleDrop location (across Pacific Avenue from the Safeway parking lot) in a blue bag with the FHFG label to benefit FHFG.
You don’t even have to go inside. There is a depository on the outside of the building in front of the handicapped parking spaces. Simply scan the label to unlock the depository, open the door and place your full bags inside. Bags are available at the FHFG Museum & Library and at events, or contact us and request them!
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible Amazon purchases. AmazonSmile utilizes your existing Amazon account.
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. On your first visit, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization. Instead of choosing one of their featured charities, go to “Pick your own charitable organization,” type in: Friends of Historic Forest Grove and click [Search], then [Select] Friends of Historic Forest Grove from the search result.
And then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation to FHFG. As the Barefoot Contessa would say, how easy is that?
Important Note: Instead of going to Amazon.com to make your purchase, you must go to smile.amazon.com. (The products, prices and shopping cart are the same.)
Benevity Corporate Giving
If you work for one of the area’s larger employers like Nike or Intel, you can set up automatic payroll withdrawals that will directly benefit FHFG. In some cases, the company will even 100% match or partially match your giving as a way for them to support the local community. Benevity is a leading provider that handles this type of corporate giving. Ask your company if they donate through Benevity. If they do, be sure to specify FHFG as your charitable organization of choice.
Please remember Friends of Historic Forest Grove in your estate or trust planning.
