What is a Sam’s Club Membership Fundraising Campaign?
When you create a Sam’s Club Membership Fundraising Campaign, you will get a unique web page where, until January 31st, 25% of the membership cost of every new membership sold will be donated to your cause*.
How does a Sam’s Club Membership Fundraising Campaign work?
Signing Up for a Campaign
Fundraising with Sam’s Club memberships is easy! First step is to sign up.
Once you’re signed up, your campaign will be confirmed within 1-3 business days. You will receive an email notification when your campaign is live and then it’s time to promote!
Promoting Your Campaign
Once your campaign is live we will provide you with your unique Fundraising Campaign Page where supporters can give back to your organization by selecting and purchasing their preferred Sam’s Club membership before the campaign deadline.
Throughout the campaign we will also email you various tools you can use to spread the word with your supporters and on social media--including social media photos, videos and captions as well as templates for text and email blasts to your network.
All that's left is to share your Fundraising Campaign Page on social media, send an email blast to your friends and family, anything to spread the word to your community about how they can give back--and get great benefits in the process (more on this below)!

Don't forget to give your campaign a boost by opting in for your own Sam’s Club membership! Show your supporters firsthand how simple the process is and the value they get back from a Sam’s Club membership by taking advantage of this offer yourself.
Receiving the Donation
We will keep you updated on supporter participation throughout the duration of the campaign. Once the deadline has passed, we will email you results and a donation check of all proceeds earned during the campaign to the address you have provided. The check will be delivered within 4-6 weeks of the campaign deadline.
In addition to supporting your cause, why should supporters buy a Sam’s Club membership?
A Sam's Club membership is the best way to save big on groceries and other essentials in bulk. Cheaper than other alternatives, Sam’s Club offers member-only benefits on products from fresh produce to home goods and electronics, making it a one-stop shop that allows you to save big where it matters most--your time, and your wallet.
Sam’s Club memberships include:
- Instant savings on top of already low prices
- Pay less at the pump at select locations
- Tire and battery center, with free services like flat tire repair
- Complimentary membership
- Discounted add-on memberships
- 1 Complimentary Member’s Mark™ Take 'N Bake Pizza or Seasoned Rotisserie Chicken*
*Comes with select give-back options. Review Fundraising Campaign page for more information.

Is there a cost to create a campaign?
No. There are no campaign minimums or fees to participate. All you have to do is create a campaign and promote this opportunity to your community and help them access exclusive Sam's Club savings and perks!

How do I get my donation?
Each week of the campaign you will receive an email update of how much you have raised so far.

Your check should arrive at the mailing address associated with your organization within 4-6 weeks of the campaign deadline.
