Compras is a year-round fundraising program that supports our school. Families can do their normal shopping and merchants donate to EBI. All donations go directly to improving programs for our students. Here are some of the easy ways for families and their friends to participate:
NEW! Shop with the Benefit Mobile App: EBI has partnered with Benefit, a free iPhone and Android app that allows you to shop at many of your favorite retailers, while giving up to 20% of every transaction back to the school. Just shop like you normally do. When it comes time to check out, instead of pulling out your credit card, open the Benefit app and purchase a digital gift card for the amount you need and redeem it instantly. The app is linked to your payment source (e.g. a credit card or checking account).
For instance, buy $200 worth of back to school clothing, and up to $14 (7%), depending on the retailer, goes back to EBI. And that’s just one purchase! Whether it’s groceries, home supplies, electronics, travel or anything else, use a Benefit gift card to pay and EBI earns a percentage. The dollars really add up, and it doesn't cost you a dime beyond what you were already going to spend!
Getting started is easy
2. Set Escuela Bilingüe Internacional as your chosen beneficiary
3. Choose your payment method (e.g., credit card, checking account or both)
… and start giving!
Shop Amazon through EBI’s Site: Start every Amazon shopping session by clicking on EBI’s Shop Amazon link (save time and bookmark this link now). Then, just do your normal shopping!
EBI will receive up to 5% of the value of your purchases during every session that starts with the EBI link. Choose EBI as your AmazonSmile charity and Amazon donates an additional 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to EBI.
Want to earn even more for the school? Consider paying with an Amazon gift card available through the Benefit app!
Shop Sports Basement: Sports Basement is a Bay Area local sporting goods store with a strong focus on giving back to the community. Sports Basement supports EBI year-round through their school rewards program. Mention Escuela Bilingüe Internacional when you shop to earn 10% off your entire purchase! Plus, Sports Basement gives 10% of all profits earned through these EBI-related sales back to the school.
