Other Giving Options

The Education Foundation for Bend – La Pine Schools would not exist if we didn’t have the support from our local and national business community. We truly appreciate and thank all of you! Please support these businesses that support us!

Fred Meyer Rewards Card

Re-enroll and/or sign up and help the Education Foundation earn donations just by shopping with your Fred Meyer Rewards Card! Here’s how the program works:

  • Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to The School Foundation Inc. DBA Education Foundation at Bend-La Pine Schools.
  • ​Y​ou can search for us by our name (The School Foundation Inc. DBA Education Foundation for Bend-La Pine Schools) or by our non-profit number 94909.
  • Then, every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping the Education Foundation earn a donation!
  • You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.​ If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.
