What is Escrips?
Escrips is a California-based fundraising organization that is free for nonprofits and donors to use. When you register your credit card with escrips, you can have businesses you buy from donate to up to three nonprofits! A few quick faq’s.
Does this cost me anything?
This costs you nothing. There are no fees or special requirements. Businesses you frequent donate a percentage of the money you spent at their establishment to Well Arts to support our programming.
Is this secure?
Escrips is well protected and often used by donors like you! Information you provide the website is confidential and cannot be used for any commercial purposes whatsoever. You can sign up for escrip’s newsletter if you like, but you won’t be put on any businesses’ lists.
What do the businesses get out of this?
Your business, and a warm, fuzzy feeling for helping us.
