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.
