eScrip is a free and easy fundraising program that automatically earns money for Atheneum School through purchases made at hundreds of eScrip merchants such as Carr’s Safeway and Macy's. Please support Atheneum School by registering your Safeway Club Card, Macy's card, and debit/credit cards, and eScrip merchants will make contributions to Atheneum based on your purchases--at no cost to you! 1. How do I register for eScrip? Register online at http://www.escrip.com/. 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 Atheneum School or our group ID 500022589. 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 Atheneum School can receive donations from purchases at Carr’s and all other eScrip merchants. OR email your Safeway Club Card number to Atheneum’s sScip Coordinators atheneum.school@gmail.com and we'll help you. 2. 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 Atheneum School or change your account to support only Atheneum School (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 Atheneum School: Visit http://www.escrip.com/ and go to "my escrip," then after accessing your account with your password, go to “account administration” to update your “group selection.” Select Atheneum School; our group ID is 500022589. OR email Atheneum's eScrip Coordinators atheneum.school@gmail.com telling us which group(s) you'd like your account to support, and we'll do it for you. 3. How do I update my credit card information? Go to http://www.escrip.com/, click on "my eScrip" and enter your personal ID# and password to review your account. You will need your eScrip password to manage your account. If you have forgotten it, click on “Forgot Your Password?” to have it emailed to you. If your email address has changed since you registered with eScrip, send your new email address to and we will update it for you. Atheneum's eScrip Coordinators atheneum.school@gmail.com 4. How do I renew my eScrip Safeway Card? Its easy! Please renew your Safeway Club Card by visiting eScrip's home page at http://www.escrip.com/ 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. (Only for families who were already signed up with eScrip.) 5. Do I have to show my Safeway Club Card when I buy groceries or does it matter how I pay for my 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. 6. 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 Atheneum School. Escrip merchants include Diablo Foods, Lunardi's, A.G. Ferrari, Macy's (if you use your Macy's card), Eddie Bauer, American Airlines, Round Table Pizza, and 700+ online merchants. It's easy, costs you nothing, and is safe to register your credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover).You can register online at http://www.escrip.com/ at eScrip's secure website. To view all eScrip merchants, visit eScrip.com and select "family of merchants.” 7. 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. 8. How can I earn money for Atheneum School by shopping online? Start your online shopping by going through the portal on the eScrip website. All your online purchases from eScrip merchants will automatically earn money for us. Please tell your family and friends to start here too! It costs nothing extra and you will have access to discount codes, shipping promotions, etc. 9. When I register my credit and debit/ATM cards, is my information secure with eScrip? Protecting your personal information is a top priority at ESI. The site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of information. The transfer of confidential information such as credit card numbers and financial data is conducted via state of-the-art encryption. ESI's web server and database reside behind a firewall in a secure datacenter with fault tolerance, offsite backup, and firewall protection. ESI maintains a multi-tiered system with no direct access to the database. 10. Can my friends and family support Atheneum School with their purchases? Absolutely! You need not be a parent to join the program. Ask the grandparents to sign up…it's quick and easy, and it costs them nothing! 11. What are eScrip Dining and Hotel Rewards? eScrip Dining & Hotels by Rewards Network provides supporters with additional opportunities to generate contributions to Atheneum School. It is an easy and discreet awards program where you can earn contributions at thousands of participating restaurants and hotels throughout the U.S. and in Canada. Now, you can earn money for Atheneum School by doing two things everyone enjoys, eating and sleeping. 12. 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. 13. Do you have more questions?

Did you know that last year , Anchorage’s West High PTSA placed 3rd in the top 200 groups in the western region in money earned using eScrip? West High earned $14,670.30 and part of their success was in having families call everyone they knew to sign up. We know this because one of our Atheneum families was among those called by a West High student ! It is the same family that suggested that Atheneum join up! Finally, each of the top 200 groups earn another $1000.00! We can’t go wrong!
