Safeway Lab Cards Fundraising Program

Safeway Lab Cards Fundraising Program


Changes to the Safeway Lab Cards Program as of Jan 5, 2023


Please note that Safeway is undergoing a change to the vendor that services all Community Giving Gift Cards including the Outdoor Lab Card Program. This vendor change is effective January 5th, 2023. You can continue to spend any loaded funds from your current Safeway card as you have normally, and the appropriate credit will be linked to your tuition fundraising effort for as long as you have funds on the card. However, you will not be able to reload new funds onto your existing Safeway card as of the 5th. We are working to acquire new cards to continue the program with as limited a disruption to your fundraising as possible.

We are sorry for the inconvenience. The Community Giving Gift Card Program will continue and we will send out replacement cards to you as soon as possible.

For more information please email Sandi Stocker


General Information 


This page is for people utilizing the Safeway Lab Cards Program to fundraise for a student or school. If you’d like to use fundraise through King Soopers, click here.

The Lab Cards Program is a great way to help pay for Outdoor Lab student fees and support the Outdoor Lab program!

Safeway offers reloadable gift cards you can purchase from the Foundation to use when you grocery shop or gas up. Each time you load the gift card with funds, Safeway donates 5% of the amount you load on your card to the Foundation.

You have the opportunity to fundraise on behalf of a student or the Foundation. See the descriptions below for more information.

  • Student Fee Card: 
    • Help pay for a specific student’s Outdoor Lab fee. Students in kindergarten through 6th grade are eligible to participate. The Foundation applies 4.5% of funds loaded onto the card to help pay for your student's Outdoor Lab tuition.
  • General Fund Card: 
    • Help the Outdoor Lab program survive and thrive for years to come! The 5% donation on this card is credited towards our general fund to help Jeffco’s Outdoor Lab program as a whole. Contributions to the Foundatio are always directed to the organization's Strategic Initiatives and managed in the most effective and efficient way possible.

The cost per card is $5 and is pre-loaded at $2.50. Cards will be mailed to the address provided on the order form. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your card(s) to arrive. When you receive your card(s), take it to your local Safeway to load it- at the check register or guest service desk.

If you are planning to order cards for multiple students simultaneously, please call our office at (720) 403-8241 (ext. 1003) to make your order over the phone. The online form is not set up to handle more than one student card request from the same person.


Reminders to Current Lab Card Users:

  • We send out quarterly email updates on your account to the email address associated with your account.

  • The school district determines student fees prior to the school year the student will attend Outdoor Lab. Fees vary by school. Don't hesitate to get in touch with your school or the Foundation for more details.

  • Safeway will deactivate cards that sit for 90 days with a zero balance. We cannot reactivate cards.
