Kroger and Amazon Smile Donations to ZSC

  • Consider choosing Zionsville Swim Club as the recipient for these common shopping “give back” programs:
    • Kroger : After choosing ZSC for your rewards, just shop and swipe your Kroger Card (or key in your phone number at checkout
      • Don’t worry, you don't sacrifice any in-store discounts or gas points you earn on your Kroger card; the charitable component is a separate, extra feature.
    • Amazon Smile : After choosing ZSC for your rewards, just shop at Amazon through  smile.Amazon.com  instead of just Amazon.com
      • AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice (AKA Zionsville Swim Club  )
