Work For Art

Enroll in or donate through Work For Art and designate Portland Actors Ensemble for your gift.  Many of the largest employers in the area participate in payroll deduction through Work For Art, including OHSU, Intel, and Kaiser Permanente, just to name a few.  Check to see if your employer participates.  As a bonus, with a $60 gift through WFA you get the Arts Card and 2-for-1 discounts on some of the hottest tickets in town.  Don’t forget to designate Portland Actors Ensemble for your gift!

If you shop regularly at Fred Meyer, you are now able to link your Rewards Card to Portland Actors Ensemble by following the link above and entering our PAE Organization Code 85069. You still get all your rewards and points, just as you normally do, but PAE earns a share of Fred Meyer’s community giving.  Whenever you use your Rewards Card when shopping at Freddy’s, you will be helping our organization earn a donation from Fred Meyer. If you do not have a Rewards Card, you can sign up for one at the Customer Service Desk of any Fred Meyer store.

eScrip is an easy method of fundraising where participating business partners, including major online retailers, contribute a percentage of your grocery loyalty cards, credit card, and debit/ATM card purchases to our organization.  Many restaurants contribute up to 5% of your bill to PAE, all at no extra cost to you.  Register your cards once, and forget it.

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the Portland Actors Ensemble.

Every item available for purchase on www.amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.

On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select Portland Actors Ensemble as the charitable organization to receive donations from your eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation.
