There are many ways to help support San Ramon Elementary School. You can help though donations, volunteering or, as you will read below, through everyday actions.
Ideally, the San Ramon PTA would not to have to ask for money or organize fundraisers annually. Unfortunately, the reality is that we must fundraise in order to give our children the programs that the state no longer covers. Your donation is tax-deductible and will directly benefit the children of San Ramon. You can donate by picking up a form in the school office.Make a Donation
Scrip cards are prepaid gift cards from local and national retailers. They are the same gift cards that you buy at stores. Many popular retailers participate including Safeway, Starbucks, Macys, The Gap, Target, Amazon, and many, many others. Harvest market and Matt & Jeffs also participate!
Participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount. San Ramon families buy the gift cards for full face value, redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the discount.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for San Ramon without spending a single additional penny out of your pocket. Just spend your regular shopping dollars on scrip gift cards then use the scrip gift cards to do your shopping. It is that easy!Scrip Order Form Participating Vendors
