Donation Request & Solicitation Policies

Donation Request Policy

At Bashas’, giving back is an intrinsic part of everything we do. Since 1932, Bashas’ Family of Stores has donated more than $100 million to local charities. As an Arizona-founded company, we help local nonprofit organizations that are making our communities better places to live and work. Thousands of schools, churches, and nonprofits operating in the communities we serve have benefited from the generosity of our company, our team members, and our customers. We have aligned our giving platform to reflect our vision of infusing life with health and happiness to help our local communities thrive.

Bashas’ proudly supports causes that make significant impacts in our communities that align with one or more of our giving pillars:

Advocating for Good

Meeting the needs of our communities as they arise.

Child Welfare

Ensuring that our youth have their necessities met.

Environment & Sustainability

Supporting the environment and sustainable practices.

Food Access

Providing quality food products and healthy choices to those who need it most.

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:

*Two longtime partners, the Girl Scouts and The Salvation Army, are grandfathered in to our no-soliciting policy.
