Help Your Bar Foundation When You Shop at Ralphs Supermarkets

Current participants must re-register with community contribution program on or after September 1—no carry-over from year to year.

The Los Angeles County Bar Foundation is registered with the Ralphs Community Contribution Program, sponsored by Ralphs supermarkets. Through this program, Ralphs 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 Ralphs Rewards card each year even if they have previously registered for the program.  If you have not yet re-registered, please do so now.

Since becoming a participant, the Foundation has received nearly $3,000 as a result of its designation by Ralphs shoppers as their charitable organization of choice.

To re-register your Ralphs Rewards card:
•  Go to and click on Sign in/register at the top right.
•  Enter your registered e-mail address and password.
•  Click on My Account and scroll down to Community Rewards Information.
•  Click on Edit Community Program Information, re-select the Los Angeles County Bar Foundation, and click on Save Changes.

To register your Ralphs Rewards card for the first time:
•  Go to and click on Sign in/register at the top right.
•  Under the heading New Customer, click on Sign Up Today. You will be asked to enter information and create a password. After doing so, an e-mail will be sent to you. Click on a link in that e-mail to take you back to the Ralphs Web site.
•  Click on My Account and log in using your e-mail address and password. Click on Edit Community Contribution Information, and input your Ralphs Rewards card number (found on the back of the card).
•  Enter either Los Angeles County Bar Foundation into the box for the name of organization or enter the Foundation’s Non-Profit Organization number: 83761. Click on confirm when LACBF’s name appears.
•  Upon completion of this procedure, you should see the Foundation listed on the right side of your information page.

If you have already registered with another organization but want to change it to LACBF, just re-register your card using LACBF’s NPO number. If you have any difficulty registering or have questions, call Ralphs at 1 (800) 443-4438.

Once you have registered LACBF as your charity of choice, each time you swipe your Ralphs Rewards Card at check-out, 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.
