Welcome to our Merchant Contributions page!
There are lots of ways you can help earn money for our school by doing things you are already doing, such as online shopping, dining out or visiting local merchants. Participating merchants will automatically contribute a percentage of each sale to our school and it is absolutely FREE to you.
If you know of another program that is not listed here, please contact our Merchant Contributions Coordinator, Marietta Durfee @ firstname.lastname@example.org
An important tool we use is a company called eScrip. Their program acts as an interface between merchants and our school, so there is minimal paperwork required from our staff. Under the eScrip program you can shop online or eat at local restaurants and earn money for our school. Create an account at www.escrip.com and you can choose St. Paul’s to be the recipient of the merchant contributions. Click on the links below for participating eScrip Merchants:

FARMERS AND MERCHANTS BANK DONATION PROGRAM
St. Paul’s is pleased to announce a partnership with Farmers & Merchants Bank. St. Paul’s Church and School have entrusted our accounts with F&M Bank, and are pleased with the high level service and security they provide.
Farmers & Merchants will donate $300 to St. Paul’s Lutheran School for each new Individual Checking Account established at their bank, and will make a $500 donation for each Joint Family or Business Account brought to the bank. Funds that are collected from this program will benefit the Event Center.
Program requirements are minimal, only a few additional services are required, and the account must be in good standing for 90 days.
Please open the below attachment if you would like more details, and to receive the code, which will ensure your gift is donated to St. Paul’s.
