Kroger Community Rewards®

Giving More Back to the Community!

Kroger is committed to helping communities grow and prosper. Year after year, local schools, churches and other nonprofit organizations will earn millions of dollars through Kroger Community Rewards®.

Kroger Community Rewards® makes fund-raising easy…all you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Kroger Plus Card!

  • Register your Kroger Plus Card online at, by clicking on Enroll. Then by using Athens Symphony Orchestra or NPO# WI606 you can link Kroger Plus Cards to the ASO!
  • Individual purchases will begin counting towards the Athens Symphony Orchestra within 7-10 days of registering the individual Kroger Plus Cards online.
  • Every time you shop for groceries and swipe your Kroger Plus card, ASO automatically starts earning a rebate which will be paid from Kroger to Athens Symphony Orchestra and won’t cost you anything!

What ASO Earns

Kroger will pay up to $600,000 on an annual basis to participating organizations based on their percentage of spending as it relates to the total spending of all participating Kroger Community Rewards organizations. Now while the ASO won’t get $600,000, it will receive funds to help support the 4 concerts that the ASO provides at no charge each year.
