The Parents’ Association raises funds for items requested on the Faculty Wish List from a variety of programs described here. Please consider how you can participate in these easy no-cost ways to contribute to virtually every area of the school.
Do you shop online?
Contributions can be generated from scores of online merchants and other businesses. Bookmark this page – or even better, add it to the toolbar on your internet browser – for fast and easy access to our online shopping links.
Amazon purchases generate funds from items placed in your shopping cart when you enter Amazon.com through this link or by clicking on the Amazon button on the right. We average at least a 6% return on these purchases and raised over $4,000 in our first year of operation. Help us keep the momentum going! Any questions about this program? Contact us at email@example.com.
eScrip’s Online Mall can be reached through this link, or by clicking on the eScrip button on the right. You will find many of your favorite merchants there, and if you enter through this link, you don’t even need to be enrolled in eScrip for your purchases to earn contributions for the school.
You may also check out www.onecause.com, and enroll to support College Prep.
Do you buy groceries at a participating store?
Our largest source of funds is grocery purchases made through the eScrip program. Contributions flow automatically from Safeway (and Pak N Save) when the Safeway Rewards card number is enrolled with eScrip. Contributions from other markets, such as Lunardi’s, Piedmont Grocery, Diablo Foods, Mollie Stones, and Planet Organics, result when you use a credit or debit card you have enrolled with eScrip. Family and friends in other locales can participate through Safeway’s associated stores, Vons and Pavilions. See instructions below for signing up.
Do you eat out?
eScrip’s “Dining Rewards Network” generates contributions from participating restaurants when you use a credit or debit card enrolled with eScrip. There are literally thousands of restaurants in this program – last year we received contributions from over 70 different establishments, ranging from pizza parlors to ethnic restaurants to fine dining and clubs.
Do you shop at Target?
In addition to a 5% discount on your purchases and free shipping on
online orders, purchases made using one of Target’s red cards can direct
a 1% donation to the school, though Target’s “Take Charge of Education”
program. Find out more and enroll your card at www.target.com/tcoe.
How to enroll in eScrip:
Participating merchants contribute a percentage of your purchase when you shop using an enrolled credit or ATM/debit card. Safeway shoppers generate contributions by enrolling their Safeway rewards card.
To enroll, go to www.escrip.com.
- Click on the "sign up" button, and enter "The College Preparatory School" as the group you would like to support.
- Have your Safeway and other credit/debit cards handy. If you are a Safeway shopper, you need to enter your Safeway card number – NOT your telephone number, although you may continue to use your phone number when you shop. If you have misplaced your Safeway Club Card, you may retrieve your number from Safeway at 877-723-3929, or apply at the store for a replacement card.
- If you would like help with registration or Safeway card number issues, contact Laurie Dornbrand at 510-547-7950 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have your card numbers available we can enroll you over the phone in less than 5 minutes.
