Silicon Valley Roller Girls Join eScrip Fundraising Program

SVRG is now a charity partner of eScrip, a super safe and easy way to continually financially support the league without ever donating any of your own cash! I’ve been personally using this for years and I’ve never had any problems. Please register with them and also send your friends and family an email to let them know how they can support us financially with only a few clicks of a mouse.

What Is the eScrip Program? How Does It Work?

eScrip has created a system that rewards customer loyalty by contributing a percentage of purchases made by participating friends and fans to nonprofits. Friends, fans, and families are encouraged to register their grocery club cards and existing credit/debit cards.  A percentage of all purchases made at eScrip merchants will be given back to SVRG as the designated group.

eScrip Advantage

Ease of use – simply present your registered cards (grocery club card, debit/credit card) at time of purchase and participating merchants contribute each time you make a purchase. There’s a broad and growing base of national and local merchant partners. There are no receipts to collect, no vouchers or certificates to buy, no hassles for you—and every purchase counts.

Register today at www.escrip.com. Click on “My Escrip” and select Silicon Valley Roller Girls to be your beneficiary! The site also allows you to track how much gets donated to SVRG from your purchases!
