Retail Scan Partners


At designated times throughout the year, the SpartanNash Foundation invites the communities it serves to join it in supporting key initiatives in partnership with our national, regional or local 501(c)(3) nonprofit partners. This is done through a retail scan, whereby store guests have the opportunity to donate at the check out register.

Small donations – in partnership with the Foundation’s financial contribution, associates’ support and volunteering AND SpartanNash’s underwriting of retail scans’ operational expenses —  add up to make a BIG impact.

Retail scan partners are carefully selected to ensure the dollars raised are effectively utilized in the communities where they are raised. Partners must obtain top rankings from third-party review sources like Charity Navigator and Guide Star.

2016

Habitat for Humanity — $114,500 donated in March 2016
In 2016, the SpartanNash Foundation expanded its partnership with Habitat for Humanity beyond Michigan, adding retail scans at its corporate-owned stores in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. As a result, 59 affiliates will build hope and homes in partnership with hardworking Habitat home buyers.

Special Olympics — $231,650 donated in May 2016
In 2016, the SpartanNash Foundation expanded its partnership with Special Olympics beyond Michigan to include retail scans at its corporate-owned stores in eight additional states — Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. As a result, more than 20,000 Special Olympic athletes will have the opportunity to compete with other children and adults with intellectual disabilities and experience the joy of seeing themselves for their abilities, not disabilities. They become confident and empowered by their accomplishments, make new friends, raise awareness for inclusion and acceptance — and have a lot of fun.

Supporting our military heroes — $182,000 donated in June and July 2016!
Between June 22 and July 4, 2016, the SpartanNash Foundation launched its first-ever companywide fundraising campaign to support our military heroes and honor those who lost their lives defending our freedoms. The scan – which took place in more than 160 retail stores and fuel centers in nine states – benefitted our national partner Honor and Remember, as well as three regional community partners.
