PPPA’s Passive Fundraising Programs
Below you will find information on three passive fundraising efforts that PPPA has set-up and information on how you can get involved and help. PLEASE read through the different program details and if you have any questions or additional ideas, contact Alia Rieker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 719-360-9447.
**Passive fundraising means that PPPA can gain from money you are already spending as you enroll in these programs.
Shop at King Soopers or City Market? Have a loyalty card? King Soopers will pay up to $125,000 per cycle to participating organizations based on their percentage of spending as it relates to the total spending of all participating King Soopers Community Rewards organizations.
To Use the King Soopers or City Market Community Rewards Program:
Once you are logged into your King Soopers or City Market account, search for Pikes Peak Pickleball Association either by name or XP054 and then click Enroll. New users will need to create an account which requires some basic information, a valid email address and a loyalty card.
*Customers must have a registered King Soopers or City Market loyalty card account to link to your organization.
*If a member does not yet have a King Soopers or City Market loyalty card, please let them know they are available at the customer service desk at any King Soopers or City Market
REMEMBER, purchases will not count for your organization until after your participants register their loyalty card.
Participants must swipe their registered King Soopers or City Market loyalty card or use the phone number that is related to their registered King Soopers or City Market loyalty card when shopping for each purchase to count.
Shop online on Amazon? Switch to AmazonSmile and PPPA will receive a small percent of every transaction! It adds up!
(AmazonSmile is operated by Amazon as their way to give back to charitable organizations)
PPPA is now enrolled in the AmazonSmile program. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same shopping features as on Amazon.com.
Go to smile.amazon.com and select Pikes Peak Pickleball Association from the list as your designated charity. Once you select PPPA, 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchase will be donated to PPPA. Spread the word to family and friends for them to designate PPPA as their charitable organization on AmazonSmile too!
In order for PPPA to receive funds from your purchases, you must always go through smile.amazon.com when preparing to shop online.

(The code is not case sensitive.)
Here's more about the ClubRewards program:
What is ClubRewards?
Pickleball is most fun when played with a group. There are hundreds of local pickleball clubs popping up across the country. We want these clubs to grow and multiply, so we’ve created a program called ClubRewards. ClubRewards gives members of local pickleball clubs a 5% discount on everything they purchase from PickleballCentral.com and an additional 5% of the purchase price goes back to their local pickleball club in the form of an annual gift card.
For YOU - ClubRewards members receive 5% off everything they purchase from PickleballCentral.com. When checking out, simply type in your club’s unique discount code (for PPPA it is CRPikes) in the coupon code box, hit the “apply” button and you’ll see 5% of the bill disappear!
For YOUR CLUB – every time a member uses your club’s discount code, 5% of their purchase goes into the club’s “kitty” or Reward Account. In February 0f 2018 we’ll send the club representative a gift card for the value of whatever is in the club’s Reward Account from the preceding year. The gift card can be used toward the purchase of anything we sell.

Best regards, The Team at Pickleball Central
