Bar Foundation: Ralphs Community Contributions Program Changes now secure, requiring participants to re-register

Subsequent to the announcement in the September County Bar Update about how to sign up for the Ralphs Community Contributions Program to help the Los Angeles County Bar Foundation as your “charity of choice,” Ralphs supermarkets has established a NEW log-in procedure because its Web site is now “secure.”

You can help LACBF earn a rebate every time you shop by registering your Ralphs Rewards Card.

If you registered on the old Web site between August 4, 2008 and September 22, 2008, your participation in the new term that began on September 1, 2008 is still in effect.

If you have not registered your new Rewards Card for the new term, you will need to log in to and click on Sign In/Register. (Note: You cannot register with an organization UNTIL you first register your Rewards Card online.) Then follow the prompts to complete the registration and editing process. (You will need the Foundation’s five-digit NPO number, which is 83761.)

The Ralphs Community Contributions Program contributes back a percentage of your household’s monthly purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. The program runs from September 1 through August 31 each year, and participants must re-register their cards each year even if they have previously registered for the program.

Once you have registered the Foundation as your charity of choice, each time you swipe your Ralphs Rewards Card at checkout, you will help LACBF earn a rebate. Most purchases qualify except those for alcohol, tobacco, pharmacy, postage stamps, gift cards, gift certificates, lottery and promotional tickets, fluid milk and milk products, fuel, CRV, and sales tax. The earned rebate percentage ranges from one to four percent based on a sliding scale of the amount spent by your household per month. Ralphs sends a quarterly check to each registered charity based on the expenditures made by the participants.
