About the Program

Scottsdale Fashion Square is once again giving back to the many nonprofit partners who have supported us through the decades. We are calling upon shoppers to pay it forward from October 15, 2023 - February 15, 2024, through our “Shop It Forward” program. 

Shop It Forward is a grassroots community program that allows participating nonprofits in the program to earn points from qualified purchases. Customers can shop, dine, and enjoy entertainment at Scottsdale Fashion Square, then submit their receipts and help one of five participating nonprofit organizations earn between $2,000 to $10,000. 

Under the Shop It Forward Program, nonprofit volunteers, staff and other supporters submit receipts from retailers, restaurants, and entertainment-related businesses at Scottsdale Fashion Square to earn points for their nonprofit. Based on the total points, each participating nonprofit receives a share of funds, based on their final points ranking, as compared with other participating nonprofits.

    Can I Use a Third-Party App to Make My Purchase (i.e., Fandango, UberEats, Postmates, Grubhub, Instacart, Shipt, etc.)?

    Yes! We will credit these purchases made with the shopping center location for the amount spent with the business. Third party charges, including delivery, service fees and/or gratuity to the third party should be deducted from your total.

    Receipts NOT Accepted:

    We do not accept photocopied receipts, credit card or bank statements (unless to document a monthly automatic withdrawal). Do not submit payments on a retailer's credit card account.

      In order to process receipts properly, we will need to see the store name, location, date and total. For long receipts, you may fold your paper receipt to see the top and bottom with all of the necessary information showing. Another option for a long receipt is to take a video showing the details needed and upload instead of a photo. 

      Have a Digital Receipt (Email, App or Text)?

      Purchases and submission of receipt(s) MUST be dated and turned in during the qualifying bonus point time frame in order to qualify for the bonus points.  Receipts turned in after the eligible bonus point period (even if purchased during the bonus point time frame) will receive the typical 5 points per dollar.
