Donate

Sonoro Choral Society could not function without support from you, our community. We understand your time is valuable, so we have enrolled in the below donations programs to make it quicker and easier for you to support your local arts.

There are several ways to donate: a) via PayPal at the button below and b) by using Amazon Smile or Fred Meyer rewards. By designating us as your preferred charities, you make it possible for Amazon and Fred Meyer to donate a portion of their profits to us — at no extra charge to you. Simply by going about your normal business, you will be helping us provide high quality music and musical education to the community. We couldn’t do it without you, and we’re so grateful.


How to use Amazon Smile

What is Amazon Smile?
It is exactly the same as your regular Amazon account (including your wishlists, prime, kindle, etc.) except that a portion of Amazon’s profits goes to the charity of your choice. They do not raise prices. Very, very rarely does smile.amazon not have what regular Amazon does. If this happens to you, it’s easy to switch back and forth between sites (you won’t even have to relog in).

How to link your Amazon account to a charity:

  1. Navigate to smile.amazon.com
  2. Log in with your normal account information. (Or make a new account if you need to)
  3. It will prompt you to pick a charity. Simply search for “Sonoro” in the search bar and our “Sonoro Choral Society in Spanaway” should show up. Click. And you’re done!
  4. Important: Once you sign up, Amazon should usually prompt you to browse via your smile.amazon account. But do double check. Unless your web browser says “smile.amazon…” you will not be donating to Sonoro. All shopping done at regular amazon.com does not give us any donations.

How to change your preferred charity:

  1.  Sign into your smile.amazon.com account
  2. On the right side of the main menu bar, mouse over “Accounts & Lists”. A long list should show up. Click “Your AmazonSmile Account” on the right side, middle top.
  3. On the right side in the middle field should be a little grey box which says,“change charity”. Search for “Sonoro”as before and you’re done!

How to use Fred Meyer Rewards

How to sign up for Fred Meyer Rewards card:

  1. Ask your Fred Meyer cashier or Customer Service Desk for a rewards card. (As far as I know), you will receive Reward Points and Fuel Points the same whether you donate to Sonoro or not.
