Community programs allow participants to direct dollars to Willamette Art Center.

The dollars we receive from these community programs help to fund the everyday functions of the WAC, and important outreach like our scholarship program and Family Clay Sunday.

Fred Meyer Community Rewards

Do you shop at Fred Meyer? Do you have a Fred Meyer Rewards Card? Here’s how you can participate:

  • Visit the Community Rewards website at
  • Click on the “Link your rewards card now”.
  • Sign into your account (create an account if you have not already). Enter your rewards card number, and search for us by our name (Friends of the Visual Arts) or by our non-profit number: 81552.
  • Every time you shop and use your Fred Meyer Rewards Card, you are helping us earn a donation! All your future purchases at Fred Meyer will automatically create a cash donation to the Willamette Art Center; there is no impact to your Rewards or Fuel program points. An announcement of your participation in the Community Rewards program will appear on the bottom of your Fred Meyer receipts. NOTE: you can only donate to one organization through this program.
  • If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.

Since the program began in mid-2014, Fred Meyer shopper’s contributions have raised money for the Willamette Art Center!

BottleDrop Give

Do you have cans and plastic or glass drink bottles clogging up your summer space? The WAC is now participating in the BottleDrop Give nonprofit fundraising program. Please help us by picking up Blue Bags with special WAC tags at the studio. Fill ‘em up! No sorting is necessary. Either return the full Blue Bags to the studio or, even better, drop them off at a BottleDrop Oregon Redemption Center. There are two locations in Salem — one on Commercial and one on Lancaster. Use the outside deposit door, scan the WAC tag, and dump your Blue Bag inside. Fast and easy! Thanks for your support!
