About eScrip

Electronic Fundraising Is Easy and FREE Through eScrip!

Register or Renew Now to Support OIS!

eScrip LogoeScrip is a free and easy fundraising program that automatically earns money for OIS through purchases made at hundreds of eScrip merchants such as Safeway, Diablo Foods, and Macy's. In 2011-2012, OIS received over $32,000 in donations from eScrip merchants. Please support OIS by registering your Safeway Club Card, Macy's card, and debit/credit cards, and eScrip merchants will make contributions to OIS based on your purchases--at no cost to you!

How do I register for eScrip?

Register online at the eScrip webpage. Select “Sign up” if you were never signed up with eScrip before. (To update your previous eScrip account, go to #2 below.) Follow the steps on-line to sign up, selecting Orinda Intermediate School, or our group ID 137104809. Enter your Safeway Club Card and credit/debit cards. If you don't know your Safeway Club Card # (the number on your red Safeway Card, not the telephone number that you enter at checkout) call Safeway at 1-877-723-3929. It is important to register your credit and debit cards too, so OIS can receive donations from purchases at Diablo Foods and all other eScrip merchants.

OR email your Safeway Club Card number to OIS's eScrip Coordinator, Katherine Ritchey and she'll help you.

What if I'm already registered with eScrip and support another organization (such as my elementary school)?
You can support up to three organizations, so you can add OIS or change your account to support only OIS (if for example you no longer have children in elementary school). Donations are divided equally among organizations if you support multiple groups.

To Add/Change to OIS: Visit eScrip and go to "my escrip," then after accessing your account with your password, go to “account administration” to update your “group selection.” Select Orinda Intermediate School; our group ID is 137104809.

OR email OIS's eScrip Coordinator, Katherine Ritchey and Sharyl Debusschere, OIS Parents' Club telling them which group(s) you'd like your account to support, and they'll do it for you.

How do I update my credit card information?
Go to eScrip, click on "my eScrip" and enter your personal ID# and password to review your account. Go to “Register credit and debit cards” and enter each card and card number. Don’t worry - protecting your personal information is a top priority. The site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of information and uses state of-the-art encryption. The web server and database reside behind a firewall in a secure datacenter with fault tolerance, offsite backup, and firewall protection. eScrip maintains a multi-tiered system with no direct access to the database.

How do I renew my eScrip Safeway Card?
Its easy! Please renew your Safeway Club Card by visiting eScrip's home page and clicking "yes, renew" on the red checkmark. (Note: The absence of the renewal link indicates that your card does not need to be renewed.) You must renew every year by November 1st or Safeway stops all donations linked to that card.

Do I have to show my Safeway Club Card when I buy groceries or does it matter how I pay for my groceries?
You do need to scan in your club card or type in your phone number at the Safeway register in order to receive benefits. The bottom of the receipt will indicate that eScrip was notified of the purchase. Your method of payment does not affect your eScrip donation or Club Card Savings.

What if I do not shop at Safeway?
Register your credit and debit/ATM cards. When you shop at other eScrip merchants they will donate money to OIS. Escrip merchants include Diablo Foods, Lunardi's, Macy's (if you use your Macy's card), American Airlines, and 700+ online merchants. To view all eScrip merchants, visit eScrip and select "family of merchants,” or click here to view a short list of local merchants.

What about airline miles and other rewards associated with credit/debit cards?
You will continue to earn airline miles, special bonuses, and other rewards associated with your cards. The eScrip donation you earn has nothing to do with the other benefits that you currently receive.

How can I earn money for OIS by shopping online?
Start your online shopping by going through the eScrip Online Mall link on the OIS website. All your online purchases from eScrip merchants (such as Amazon, Nordstrom, and Office Depot) will automatically earn money for us. Tell your family and friends to start here too! It costs nothing extra and you will have access to discount codes, shipping promotions, etc.

Can my friends and family support OIS with their purchases?
Absolutely! You need not be a parent to join the program. Ask the grandparents, friends, relatives, etc. to sign up…it's quick and easy, and it costs them nothing!

Why do businesses participate in eScrip?
It's a great way to build customer loyalty and contribute to their communities. When parents know that a merchant is going to donate to their student's school, most parents will be more likely to shop there.

We make OIS a better place.
