Schools and organizations that register with eScrip will receive up to 4 percent of each purchase made by participants. Other corporations include American Airlines, Budget Rent-A-Car, Choice Hotels, Eddie Bauer, Fresh Choice, Payless Shoe Source, Spiegel, telegroup, Timberland and The Sharper Image. These corporations will provide a percentage of each purchase to the participating eScrip organization.


Registration for schools and organizations is free, while supporters must agree to pay a $10 registration fee. Monthly reports are provided to the schools, quarterly reports to parents.
