Escrip is am amazing fundraising program through which participating business partners contribute a percentage of your purchases back to our school. Escrip costs you nothing and benefits our school tremendously. You continue to do your everyday shopping, and participating merchants send our school money!

Escrip partners come in two flavors : local merchant partners and online retailers.

Local Merchant Partners

Escrip partners include many of the major grocery chains, including Safeway, Pak N Save, Molly Stones and Andronico's. To see the complete list of merchants view the downloadable flyer.

The amount contributed to our school depends on how much you spend in a month. Safeway, Andronico's and Pak N Save all follow the following structure:

1% Monthly Purchases Between $0-$300

2% Monthly Purchases Between $301-$500

3% Monthly Purchases Between $501-$600

Plus 4% Monthly Purchases Above $600

To enable contributions from local merchants you need to register your grocery loyalty cards (e.g. Safeway card) and credit cards with Escrip. Then, you just do your normal shopping and Escrip sends the contributions directly to our school.

Online Partners

Escrip is also partnered with many of the major online retailers such as Amazon, Pottery Barn, Borders and Dell. Contributions from online retailers are generally much more generous than those from local merchants. With online retailers you earn up to 6% of your purchase.

To enable contributions from online retailers you need to register your credit cards with Escrip and enter their sites through special links on the Escrip site. I know, this part is a little harder to remember to do, but if you're shopping online, try to start here and our school will reap the benefits! "Special links" to a few popular online retailers are also included in the right-hand sidebar of this page. If you have a favorite online retailer that you would like added to this list, we're more than happy to do so.
