Kroger and Amazon partner with Cincy SC Scholarship Fund

Kroger Community Rewards and Amazon Smile


Kroger and Amazon are the latest companies to join 50 West, Chipotle, Graffiti Apparel, Buffalo Wings & Rings, and FC Cincinnati in support of the Cincy SC Scholarship Fund.

Kroger Community Rewards and Amazon Smile are programs where a small percentage of your purchases can be directed towards a charity or your choice, and the Cincy SC Scholarship Fund is on their list. You just need to enroll! Here’s how:

Kroger Community Rewards

  1. Go to Kroger Community Rewards page
  2. Log in to your Kroger Plus account*
  3. In the search box, type “Cincy SC” or “YF317”
  4. Select “Cincy SC Scholarship Fund (Cincinnati Soccer Club) YF317” and enroll

* If you haven’t logged on before, you will need to have your Kroger Plus card handy, or if you just use your phone number at the register you can call 800-576-4377 and select option 3 to get your Kroger Plus card number.

Amazon Smile

  1. Go to the Amazon Smile profile for Cincinnati Soccer Club
  2. Always start your shopping at (only purchases made this way are included)

If you spend lots of dough at a retailer with a similar program, let us know and we’ll get the Cincy SC Scholarship Fund added.

    My apologies, but Amazon Smile is not yet online. We actually delayed sharing the info about Kroger for a few days thinking Amazon Smile would be ready too. Soon, we hope.

    Looks like we’ll have to wait til the end of January for Amazon Smile:

    Hello Brett,

    Thank you for contacting us about your organization.

    It appears that you recently received your 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS. Once that happens, there is typically a lag of a few months before a new charity is added to our system. The exact timing is out of our control since we rely on GuideStar to send us information from the IRS. Since you’re already listed on GuideStar, I would expect that they will include your organization’s information in their automated feed to AmazonSmile at the end of January – February. Once that file is processed, which may take several additional weeks, your organization should automatically appear in our system assuming you meet all of the eligibility criteria.

    Currently, we do not have any way to include an organization manually in the program.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best Regards,

    Zach P.
