There are many ways you can support Micheltorena Elementary through your everyday and seasonal shopping, at no additional cost to you. These programs are known as affiliate programs or eScripts and you may have seen them at your local supermarket, drugstore, or even online when websites show ads to Amazon or eBay. Each program works slightly differently but if you follow the steps to enroll or shop through our site, Micheltorena Elementary will raise funds with each purchase you make. On Amazon for example, this starts at 4% or more.
How it works: Whenever you want to make a purchase on Amazon, simply come to www.micheltorena.org first. From here click on any Amazon link or banner which will take you to the Amazon home page. Any purchase you make on Amazon during that session will have a portion of your sale price donated to our school. Since we anticipate this will be one of the most used fundraising links, we will make it available here, on the home page, and on the main Giving page. However, periodically Amazon runs promotions on certain products that will allow the school to earn up to 10% of sales. We will feature information on this promotion only on this page so check back periodically for additional information.
TARGET RED CARD
Shop at Target using your Target Red Card and earn money for Micheltorena! When you designate Micheltorena as your school of choice, Target will donate 1% of your purchase amounts to the school!
Go to the Target Red Card Take Charge of Education website to sign up with your Red Card and choose Micheltorena.
Don’t have a Red Card? You can apply for one.
Using a Target Red Card allows you to get 5% off all Target purchases, as well as free shipping from their website. We suggest applying for the debit card option, which draws directly from your checking account. If you choose the credit card option, we suggest paying off the balance by the end of the month, as the interest rate on the credit card is 22.9%!
Shop at Vons and earn money for the school every time you shop! When you use your Vons card and pay for your groceries with cash, check or debit card, Vons will donate a portion of the bill to Micheltorena!
First you must sign up with the program and designate Micheltorena School as your choice. It’s easy! Go to escrip.com/Vons and follow the directions. You will need to have your Vons card handy.
If you don’t have your Vons card number (or your Vons card), the website will tell you how to get your card number using your phone number that you use at the store. You will also need to renew with the program every year in August to maintain Micheltorena as your recipient of choice.
