eScrip Program


Supporting San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden has never been easier! Did you know that just by shopping you can donate automatically to the Garden, and it will cost you nothing? Everyday grocery and retail purchases can earn dollars for our organization.

San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden is enrolled in the eScrip program, a simple way for organizations like ours to raise funds through everyday purchases. We need all of our members, friends and volunteers to sign up for eScrip and start earning for the Garden now.

You can help raise funds for the Garden automatically from everyday grocery shopping, on-line retail purchases and dining out through a FREE fundraising opportunity called eScrip. Just by shopping regularly at Spencer’s, Von’s or New Frontiers markets, and at other participating retail and restaurant members, our group receives contributions each month. That’s all there is to it.
