Shop and Raise Money
Easy Everyday Ways to Benefit Taylor
The various programs below provide easy ways to raise money for Taylor as you shop.
Use eScrip, the most powerful fundraising program across the nation!
Simply sign up at https://www.escrip.com/howitworks and register your cards (grocery cards, ATM or credit cards). Designate Taylor Middle School PTA, Group ID# 500006152 to receive contributions (you can designate more than one group). Then shop as you normally would either online, in stores or shopping malls.
At the end of the month, hundreds of merchants send their sales data to eScrip to process through their computer systems. If registered cards were used on a specific transaction, the computers calculate the rewards amount (from 1% - 10% of total), and we get a check about two weeks later. So the merchants do the donating for us!! The merchants (Safeway, Target, Macy’s and more) require stringent security systems be in place to protect their customers' information. From a parent’s standpoint, it is a safe and easy way to donate to the school without having to take extra cash from our budgets.
If you’d rather not register credit cards, you can simply choose to support Taylor PTA, and then click on the eScrip OnlineMall link. There you will find shopping categories, store listings and even see the amount that the school will get from their purchases. Many of your favorite stores like Target, Eastbay Sporting Goods, Home Shopping Network, use this as a means of donating to schools.
You Shop. Amazon Gives.
When you shop on AmazonSmile (https://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-6174620), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate a percentage of the purchase price of eligible products to the Taylor Middle PTA.
