Fairway Market’s Community Partners™ program is a way to work with local schools on fundraising efforts. Once the school and its PTA enroll in the Community Partners™ program, the PTA will receive customized Community Partners™ shopping cards & key tags. Each time school supporters shop and scan their key tags, Fairway will tally the shopping spend and will make a quarterly donation to the school based on the total amount its supporters spent that quarter.
Before we can approve a PTA and school, we must receive a completed donation application and copies of both organizations’ tax determination letters, e.g. IRS 501(c)3. Public schools must send us a copy of their IRS W-9 form.
Once a school submits its application and supporting documents, you will receive the Community Partners™ shopping cards within two (2) weeks. You will also receive sample emails to distribute to your school’s community promoting the program, as well as content for use on the school’s and organization's website.
There is no cost to the organization for the Community Partner™ key tags ordered.
We ask that you limit your key tags order to only the number of key tags that you are planning to distribute upon enrollment of the program.
Yes, you may order additional key tags as needed by emailing email@example.com.
Contributions are distributed quarterly, approximately one month after the quarter ends.
No, Fairway’s contribution will be mailed directly to the school’s designated contact at the official address we have on record.
There minimum contribution amount is $3 - that’s 3% of $100 over 3 months. Contributions are earned each quarter over the three-month period.
Yes. We ask that at the end of the school year, you confirm participation for the next school year by reenrolling via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fairway Market’s Community Partners™ is supported by Fairway Market stores and the Community Partners™ key tags can be scanned at all Fairway locations.
Once you are enrolled in the program, you will receive an email with various promotional materials and links to obtain posters and handouts.
Unfortunately, unless the key tag is scanned at the time of purchase we are not able to give credit for the transaction.
