The eScrip program allows parents, teachers and other community members to contribute money to our school through their everyday shopping activities. For additional information, please contact our PTA. If there are merchants that you purchase from on a regular basis and would like eScrip to contact them to be part of this program, let eScrip know. Make sure to use our Group ID and include the merchant name, type of merchant, contact person name and email address if possible.

You can sign up for eScrip here. Family members, friends and members of our neighborhood can also register their cards with eScrip and give money to Grout each time they shop. The Group ID number for Grout PTA is:


There are two main ways to use the program:

1) Participating Merchants: Parents, teachers, family members, neighborhood members and friends can register any or all of your debit and credit card into the program and Grout PTA receives benefits each time you use them at participating merchants, at no additional cost to you.

Earn Contributions Every Time You Dine Out! Visit or carry out from over 11,000 participating restaurants, bars or clubs and pay with your registered cards.  Easily search for places to dine and earn at

2) Online Mall: A great way to use eScrip is to visit the eScrip Online Shopping Mall to make online purchases from companies such as Amazon, Apple, Ebay, Toys R Us, Nike, REI, PETCO, Petsmart, Home Depot, Walmart, Williams Sonoma, J Crew, Macy’s, Expedia, Travelocity, etc. If you make your purchases through the Online Mall, Grout PTA will receive a portion of your expenditure. (Note that there are many more companies to buy from at the Online Mall than are participating in the Merchant Family here in Portland.)
