Scrip is a fundraising program where a percentage of a purchase at a participating merchant supports designated school programs. Parents, family and friends sign up to earn scrip credits from merchants they normally shop with.
Scrip is an “Earn as you Shop” program that everyone can participate in!
To participate in the Scrip Program, individuals can fill in the Scrip Program Account Set-up Form / Scrip Program Account Set-up Form Spanishand have it on file at the El Dorado Union High School District Office. The information on this form is used to post the earned scrip credits to the designated program. Undesignated scrip credits are posted to the District’s general athletic program.
Each program is managed separately. Supporters can participate in one program or both. Family, friends and community supporters can also sign up.
Please Note: Many merchants also support parent booster programs. These programs are a part of the District Scrip Program. Parent booster programs raise money for a specific sport, club or program. For example: Sober Grad Night, Music Boosters, Athletic Boosters, etc.

Benefits Mobile: Use your smart phone to earn scrip credits by logging in to the eScrip website and clicking on the “A new way to Fundraise” icon. The app allows you to buy and redeem electronic gift cards instantly which will earn scrip credits for a chosen program. Merchants like Amazon, Whole Foods, Walmart, Kmart, Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Red Robin, Safeway, Starbucks, Regal Cinemas, and many more participate.
How does it work? The cashier will ring up your items, while waiting for a total, login to your Benefits Mobile App. Once the cashier gives you a transaction total, you purchase an electronic gift card for the amount needed, show the cashier the gift card code. The cashier will enter the code and you have instantly redeemed the electronic gift card to pay for your purchases. You can link the app to a credit card or a checking account for increased earnings.
Caution: There are a few merchants in the area that do not have the electronic capabilities to accept the bar code via your smart phone. In this case, you would be required to print out a copy of the electronic gift card prior to using it. Safeway and Home Depot fall into this category.
