Fundraising at Roseway Heights
Fundraising is a very important part of our school’s budget. Great fundraising efforts mean the difference between an adequate education and an enhanced education full of many exceptional and enriched activities, which all children benefit from. At Roseway Heights we strive to raise money for the school in the simplest and least expensive ways for our families. The fundraising companies listed below are passive fundraising solutions. In most cases going to these sites to do your regular shopping, Internet searches and so forth can add revenue to the school’s budget. Mere pennies and dollars raised through these sites may not seem significant at first. However, as more people use these programs those pennies and dollars can add up to hundreds and possibly thousands to benefit the school!
These sites are not limited to just Roseway Heights families. Anyone can use these sites to benefit the school. Share this page with extended family and friends. Please check this page regularly as we will be adding new fundraising options.

Year Round Fundraising
Scrip Gift Cards are an easy, free way to make money for our school. It is a dollar to dollar exchange for gift cards and certificates accepted at places we already shop. Roseway Heights buys scrip at a discount from each merchant: we use their cards; we keep the profit. We get full face value of our purchase!
Order forms are due Tuesday at 8am in your child's classroom or front office Scrip Envelope. Scrip cards will be distributed to families on Thursdays afternoons in the Galleria or in your child’s backpack (with signed waiver).
Click here to see a full list of participating merchants and download the order form to your computer.
Sign up for eScrip – a painless, easy way to contribute to Roseway and it costs you nothing. Go to the eScrip program site and register your Safeway grocery store loyalty card and your various debit and credit cards. Participating merchants make contributions to our school based on purchases you make with the registered cards. Think of eScrip as a supplement to our regular scrip program: RWH gets a higher return from regular scrip than from eScrip, but if your debit or credit card is registered with eScrip, RWH can still benefit even when you don’t have a scrip gift card with you.
To sign up:
- Go to escrip.com and click on “Sign Up – It’s Free”.
- Enter “Roseway Heights” as the organization you are supporting and click the Search button
- Click on Roseway Heights in the search results (“Select the group which you would like to support by clicking on the group’s name.”)
- Click the Next button to proceed to the next step
- Enter information about yourself and click the Next button
- Register your Safeway card if you have one and click Next
- Register your credit and debit cards and click Next
- Click Next again. (Macy’s stores in Oregon are not participating in eScrip)
Participating local stores include Safeway, Zupans, Eddie Bauer, Barnes and Noble. Do your online shopping via the eScrip Online Mall and merchants like Apple, Amazon, Nordstrom, Office Max, Gap, and Home Depot will contribute to RWH (often 1.2%). Additionally, there are many restaurants in Portland that will give 2.5% of the bill--including the tip--to us. After signing up to eScrip, go to the home page and click on the Escrip Dining Rewards box to see a long list of participating local restaurants such as Aztec Willies, Joey Rose Taqueria, Thatch, Wine Down on 28th, Kells, Il Piatto and almost every Burger King in the Metro area.
Contact the eScrip coordinator Alicia Pollock at Stargrrl@comcast.net if you have any questions or need help navigating.
We’ve discovered a terrific way to raise funds for our school. It’s super-easy, and all you have to do is use your Target® Visa® or Target® Card. We will receive a percentage of the amount of each purchase in the form of a cash donation from Target through the Take Charge of Education® program. It’s easy. Just visit target.com/tcoe, or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate our school when you use your card. So if you’re going to Target anyway, please consider using your Target® Visa® or Target® Card. Big thanks to those who are already doing their part to make a great school even better.

Guess what? The RWH PTA earned $719 last quarter through the Fred Meyer Community Rewards Program!! 111 people have registered their Fred Meyer cards (up 10 from last quarter!). I know WE CAN DO BETTER!! I'm hoping by the end of this year we will have 150 people registered. (That would mean earning up to $1,000 every 3 months. Think what we could do with that money!) So if you haven't yet, register your card; tell you friends, neighbors, grandparents, mailman, anyone you ...can think of to register their cards too.
It's easy, honest! Every time you shop at Fred Meyer, and use your Rewards card, Fred Meyer will give a portion of your sale to our school. Just follow this link and register your Fred Meyer Rewards card. Our NPO number is 93275. If you don't have a FM Rewards Card, you can get one at any store. Oh, and you will still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today. If you have any questions feel free to email me, email@example.com
