There are many ways to contribute financially to Monta Loma Elementary. Some of them require no additional expense, but take advantage of the generosity of corporations though affiliate programs.
Your direct donation to Monta Loma PTA is tax deductible and very welcome. With guidance from the Association, the PTA board will decide where the money gets spent exactly. The money typically goes to field trips, enrichment activities, arts and in some cases classroom supplies. Please contact the PTA for more information. Our Tax ID is 77-0387464.

eScrip is a simple program that allows the school to earn money with very little work required. The program works by signing up your credit cards, debit cards or rewards/club cards (of participating companies). When you purchase qualifying items from a participating store, a small percentage of the purchase gets donated to the school. This is true for participating restaurants, grocery stores and department stores. Although the list of participating vendors has changed, the program still includes local favorates such as: Piazza's, Draeger's, Mollie Stone's, and FoodMaxx. A full list of participating stores can be found at the eScrip website. Once you sign up, there is nothing else to do for this program. So please go to the following website:
Just follow the directions for signing up. The pertinent information is as follows:

Office Depot's '5% Back to Schools Program' will credit 5% of qualified purchases to the school of your choice year round. When making a purchase in store, tell the clerk you would like to participate in the 5% Back to Schools program. They can search the school by name and identify the school ID number (70011184). When purchasing online, enter the school ID number in the 'comments' section. You can also call Office Depot and redeem receipts for the program if you have forgotten.
Box tops can be found on a variety of consumer goods such as Cheerios, Ziploc bags and Kleenex. Each top raises a (very) small amount for the school. You can cut them off the boxes and turn them in at the school office.
Two of our neighbors have generously offered to let you drop off box tops at their homes if the location suits you better. They will collect them and turn them in at the school.
