EVERYONE can help raise funds for Edgewood! We have available many NO COST to you fundraising opportunities; there is no reason not to participate. Below are just a few very easy ways we all can be contributing year-round!!!
This is the easiest way to help raise money for our school. It is free for all donors who register for the program and participants do not need to live in Eugene or even Oregon to be earning money for the school. Encourage your friends, neighbors and relatives to support Edgewood this way. The school ID number is 7431429.
Register any one or all of your existing grocery loyalty, debit and credit cards for use in the program.
Participating merchants will make contributions to Edgewood, based on purchases made by you, just by using the cards you have registered. There are no receipts to collect, no vouchers or certificates to buy, no hassles for you and every purchase counts.
Your purchases are tracked and available to you online, allowing you to see just how much you are earning on your child’s behalf!

New Program: eScrip Online Shopping Mall’s “AutoEARN“ webapp is free and can help you earn contributions for purchases at stores you know and trust. You pay exactly the same as you would normally shopping online but also receive an additional contribution.
Sequential Biofuels is a local gas station that provides fuel and food for all types if cars. You merely need to inform the attendant of your Edgewood affiliation and they will log the sale to our school for donation credit. Sequential donates .5 cents per gallon and 5 percent from store purchases if customers mention Edgewood. The stations are located at 86714 McVay Hwy and 1695 W. 18th Ave. Visit www.sqbiofuels.com for more information.
Back-to-school shopping inevitably means an opportunity to clip and submit Box Tops to earn free money for Edgewood. Edgewood’s Box Tops Coordinator collects all the Box Tops and sends them in so Edgewood can get cash. Checks are mailed to schools twice a year.
There is a Box Tops collection box in front of the school secretary’s desk in the office. Drop them in there, or send them in an envelope to school with your child to give to his/her teacher.
Edgewood has earned anywhere from $300 to $1,300 a year from Box Tops for Education. Help us make it the best earning year this year!
You will be surprised by how many of the products you or your neighbors and family use every day that can earn Edgewood a 10¢ each donation.
