Donation Request & Solicitation Policies
Donation Request Policy
Thank you for asking Bashas’ for assistance and/or sponsorship of your endeavor. Regrettably, we are unable to provide resources at the present time.
Grocery retailers have faced unprecedented customer demand during the pandemic, forcing us to shift additional resources to our stores in order to support everyday operations. Among those operations are the additional health, safety and sanitation programs we’ve implemented to ensure the well-being of our customers and members (employees). Unfortunately, this has meant the temporary cessation of our donations program.
Again, we thank you for considering Bashas’ as a source of support. Please be assured that our decision is in no way indicative of how we feel about the worthiness of your cause. Unfortunately, we simply do not have the product nor labor resources to contribute to organized group activities under the present circumstances.
Bashas’ looks forward to hearing from you again in the future.
Our Policy for Soliciting on Bashas’ Property
Bashas’ Family of Stores does not allow soliciting on our store properties.* We do, however, have a longstanding commitment to our communities through our two charitable programs, the Charity of the Month and our Community Support Card. To qualify for either program, an organization must be a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our renowned Charity of the Month program gives customers the opportunity, via donations at the cash register, to support one major community charity nearly every month of the year. With our Community Support Card program, we sell gift cards to nonprofits at a 6% discount, and the nonprofit then sells those cards to its supporters at full value, netting the difference as proceeds. For more information on either program, click here: https://www.bashas.com/our-community/
*Two longtime partners, the Girl Scouts and The Salvation Army, are grandfathered in to our no-soliciting policy.
