Fundraising Opportunities for the UQG

Link Your Smiths Card

Smiths Food & Drug agreed to be one of our sponsors. But you'll have to link your Smiths card to the UQG. This can be done on your computer and will only take about 1 minute. By linking your Smiths card to the Guild we will receive a percentage of sales that all linked members spend. This does not affect your personal Smiths coupons or fuel points. We will earn rewards on almost everything you buy at Smiths. There are 3 simple steps to link your Smiths card to the Guild's account.

  1. Go to www.smithsfoodanddrug.com/topic/inspiring-donations
  2. Sign in to your online account, or create an account if you do not have one
  3. Update your Account Summary, find and select our organization and click "Save". Our Organization is Utah Quilt Guild, organization #78358.

Amazon Smile Foundation

The Amazon Smile Foundation donates 0.05% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases. The UQG has been approved to participate in this program. Instead of signing into amazon.com, simply sign into www.Smile.Amazon.com. Once you are signed in, the charitable choice drop-down box is on the bottom right side of the page, select the Utah Quilt Guild. Your friends and families may also use the Smile.Amazon.com website and make their charitable choice as the UQG as well. When you shop on Amazon, you will see eligible products marked “Eligible For Amazon Smile donation” on the product pages. There are tens of thousands of products that qualify for this program. Amazon.com and Smile.Amazon.com carry the same products on their website.

Wounded Warrior Project

UQG Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) 2018

Step 1 – Buy a $5 Fat Quarter from your Area Representative (listing in the Beeline). All proceeds from the sale of the fat quarters will be donated to the WWP.

Step 2 – Make a 12-1/2” unfinished block (12” finished) using a portion of the fat quarter purchased and fabric of your own.

Step 3 – Turn in your block at Quilt Fest (QF) 2018. Blocks will be voted on and prizes will be awarded at then!

The blocks will then be sorted and divided into groups. We will ask members to sign up and take a group of blocks to make them into a quilt for Quilts of Valor (QOV). Directions will be provided at that time. Please consider piecing a QOV from these blocks or donating your time quilting or binding a quilt. We would like to show the finished quilts at QF 2019.

Please take a moment and help us do a small thing for those that have and are protecting our nation from those out there that are trying to destroy our freedom. Thanks for your support.

Questions about this project can be directed to Jill Cox and/or Kathy Gardner.  Contact information can be found in the online member's directory.
