Community Fundraisers

We are fortunate to have many local and several national businesses willing to donate a percentage of their profits to our school.

Below are links with more information about these community fundraisers and how to sign up to have these companies donate to Valencia at no extra cost to you!

 

There's not an easier way to donate!

Help “BENEFIT” the Valencia Elementary PTA by downloading the eScrip Benefit app for your everyday dining out & shopping needs! 

 

Do you shop at Target or Bed Bath & Beyond?  Need to pick up a birthday gift at Toys R Us, Nordstrom or Old Navy?  Want to grab a snack at Starbucks, Panera or Panda Express?  Or plan a trip on Southwest Airlines and use Airbnb or Hotels.com for your stay?

You can do all of this AND earn money for Valencia’s PTA just by buying gift cards through the Benefit Mobile app for these retailers and MANY more!  You already shop, eat out, and pay for travel or entertainment, so why not earn FREE money for it!!  Just by purchasing retailers’ gift cards Valencia will receive 3-15% of the gift card purchase amount!

 

To get started:

  1. Download the app for your iPhone or Android and choose Valencia Elementary PTA as your Beneficiary. Link the app to either your checking account or credit card (NOTE: linking your checking account can earn twice as much as a credit card).
  2. Shop the way you usually do. As you check out at a participating retailer in store or online, use Benefit to buy a gift card to cover the cost of your purchase. It will be delivered to your phone within seconds. The rebate you earn will be automatically credited to Valencia Elementary PTA.
  3. Redeem and Earn Money for Valencia Elementary PTA. Use the gift card right then and there to make your purchase.*

For more information or to see a complete list of participating retailers go to https://www.benefit-mobile.com/our-retailers

 

* Please note: When you click on a retailer to purchase a gift card, it indicates how the card may be redeemed. For a small percentage of retailers (like Regal & Pavilions), you will need to PRINT the gift card in order to redeem it in store.
