Hyatt Place, Fort Worth/Cityview

FCEF has had a unique relationship with the Hyatt Place Fort Worth/Cityview for the past several years.  The Hyatt Place Fort Worth/Cityview generously makes a donation to FCEF when guests associated with First Command Educational Foundation or First Command Financial Services stay in that hotel.

You must have a Kroger Plus Card to donate to FCEF.

To support FCEF, all you have to do is click here, print the Customer letter, and take it with you to your neighborhood Kroger store the next time you go shopping. Present your Kroger Plus Card and the Customer letter with FCEF’s barcode to your cashier upon checkout.  Once a card is scanned with the barcode, it will be active for the remainder of the program year.

Every time you shop at Kroger with your Kroger PLUS card, Kroger will contribute 1% percentage of your eligible purchases (some purchases are not eligible, e.g. alcohol, tobacco, lottery tickets, gasoline) to FCEF.

First Command Educational Foundation is raising funds while saving the environment!

When you recycle your empty inkjet cartridges, old cell phones, and other small electronic devices through Planet Green, FCEF receives a donation of the value of the device.

When you buy recycled print cartridges through Planet Green, FCEF receives a donation, you save money on your purchase, fewer used cartridges are sent to landfills, and you support an American remanufacturer.

In the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area:

Obtain a Reward Card at Tom Thumb (part of the Safeway Family of Stores), and ask them to provide a donation to Charity #11161 to match your shopping tab. (It won’t interfere with your Advantage Miles!)

If you already have a Tom Thumb Reward card, ask at the customer service desk for your card to be linked to FCEF Good Neighbor number #11161.

Give your card to the cashier at checkout and FCEF will receive a donation equivalent to 1% of your purchases excluding alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, gasoline and sales tax.
