Each Community Bag comes with a Giving Tag attached, providing shoppers with the option to make their own choice of a local nonprofit to receive the $1 donation from their bag purchase.
By following instructions on the Giving Tag within seven days of purchase, shoppers visit MySEGCause.com to submit a nonprofit of their choice. Once your organization reaches $10 or more from the Giving Tag, you’ll receive a donation check!
If the Giving Tag isn’t submitted, then the $1 will be directed to the nonprofit selected by store leadership for that month.

*Please Note: There are no numbers or symbols in the code.
If the donation is not directed within 7 days of purchase, the donation will automatically go to the store’s selected nonprofit beneficiary that month.
We will send donation checks directly to selected nonprofits earning $10 or more in the Community Bag Program approximately 10-12 weeks after their selected month ends. Selected nonprofits earning less than $10 in their selected month will be sent a donation check when the accumulated benefits reach at least $10 or at the end of the year.
Nonprofits participating in the Giving Tag Program who earn $10 or more at any point will be sent their donation checks approximately 10-12 weeks after the close of the month in which the funds reaching or surpassing $10 were raised. Giving Tag Program beneficiaries who earn less than $10 throughout the year will be sent a donation check with any remaining balance in our account at the end of the year.
