Friends of Placer High School rely on the scrip giving programs of our area supermarkets and various retailers to help fund many activities and wish list items at Placer High School. These programs just require that you link your savings cards to our organization for us to receive a donation. There is nothing required of you after that. Escrip, also, now offers a donation program thru their online mall. Please take a moment to look at the programs below to help FOPHS, to help students, by enrolling in these programs. All are no monies out of your pocket!
What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?
The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
How does AmazonSmile work?
When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.
As many of you know, Save Mart has recently changed its Shares program. It is now part of the Escrip program. So it is necessary to link your Shares account to Friends of Placer High School as your designated giving. No card necessary. Just enroll with your SHares account phone number and designate FOPHS as your school. In addition, if you shop at Save Mart and do not currently have an account, this same link will allow you to enroll.
