One of the wonderful things about James Lick Middle School is our community commitment to providing our students with a wonderful, well-rounded academic experience. The James Lick PTSA raises funds throughout the year to support the enriching programs our school offers, programs like Visual and Performing Arts, field trips, Carnaval Parade, and so much more. 

Though many of us may not have enough disposable income to write big checks for school projects, chances are you’re already spending money for things like clothes and groceries. Here are a few easy ways you can help raise funds for the PTSA without breaking your budget, or even spending one extra dime!

Grocery Scrip

If you shop at Good Life or Rainbow Grocery, you can purchase Scrip coupons from the PTSA. Spend them just like money when you shop and a portion of your purchase (10%) is donated to the school. If you’re interested in purchasing scrip, please contact parent volunteer Jenny Stanley at burlstanley@earthlink.net or 415.596.0291.

Target RED Card

Sign up for this program at Target stores and when you use your Target RED card, a percentage of your purchases are automatically donated to the school. More info at http://www.target.com/redcard


JLMS has joined the Amazon Associates Program. Whenever you shop at Amazon, simply enter the site through any Amazon ad on the JLMS website and earn 6% - 15% of your purchases for JLMS.


OneCause allows JLMS to benefit from our community’s purchasing power without asking for an extra donation. When you click through http://www.onecause.com to do your online shopping, the site steers between 1% and 5% of the total amount you spend to your school of choice.


Register your credit cards, debit cards and supermarket cards for the Escrip program. A percentage of your purchases at participating merchants are automatically donated to the school. Hundreds of retailers like Safeway, Macy’s, Office Max, Whole Foods and Payless Shoes participate in the program. JLMS gets anywhere from 3-10% from your purchases, so just your usual shopping can earn lots of money for the school. Sign up at http://www.escrip.com
