Link with Rewards Programs to donate when you shop

You can make a difference for GFO while you shop.  Through a one-time linking, you can trigger an automatic donation to GFO every time you make purchases through the Fred Meyer Community Rewards Program, AmazonSmile, and BottleDrop Give.  And the best part is that linking will not diminish any benefits or rewards you already receive. 

Thanks to all of you who've signed up for the Fred Meyer Community Rewards Program. GFO receives a check 4 times per year, based on how many people shop and how much they purchase at Fred Meyer stores. Please help us by signing up for the Fred Meyer Community Rewards Program and selecting the Genealogical Forum of Oregon (GFO) as your charity of choice.


Select the Genealogical Forum of Oregon (GFO) as your Amazon Smile non-profit organization of choice and the GFO will automatically receive a donation from Amazon valued at .5% of the price of eligible purchases at no cost to you.

There are two ways to help the GFO with the BottleDrop Give Program.  You can contribute to the GFO by obtaining a designated Blue Bag, filling it up with your empty containers, and dropping it off at any BottleDrop location; or by donating directly through your own BottleDrop account by designating the "Genealogical Forum of Oregon" as the recipient.

Blue Bags may be obtained from our volunteers by sending an email to
