​​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 (MY050) 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 Inc). There is also an AmazonSmile app if you prefer to do your shopping that way.
