School Shopping Program Info

School Shopping Program Information

The School Shopping Program means money for your local schools. It is a simple and fun way for schools to earn much needed funding by encouraging students, families and friends to shop!

Parents, friends, students and supporters simply credit the amount on their mall receipts to the school of their choice, and schools win cash prizes!

Schools can also earn points in the program by means that do not require spending money including attending special events, showing school spirit and submitting monthly bonus point options. These alternatives help to make the program beneficial for schools of all sizes. There’s even an opportunity to earn points through social media participation! Every participating school that meets the minimum point requirement receives an award at the end of the school year based on their total points earned.
