Martin’s Advantages For Education

Help our school receive $175,000 in educational equipment just by using your Martin’s Advantage Card when you shop!

You’ll earn a point for every dollar you spend. MAEL’s total earned points will be split proportionally for credit among all other schools signed up for the program.

The more people that are signed up to help our school, the more credit our school receives! Friends, neighbors and relatives may sign-up. You don’t have to be a parent to participate!

Sign up in store or click here!

If you signed up for our school last year, you do not need to re-register.

If you need to change the school you are signed up for, click here and enter the name of the new school you wish to earn credit for. Or, stop by the customer service office at any Martin’s.

Purchase SCRIP!

Purchase gift cards for groceries, gasoline, clothing, entertainment, home repair, dining, etc. through MAEL and a percentage of your purchase is split between MAEL, the MAEL Parent Network and YOU at year-end! There is no catch. All that is required of you is a little planning ahead.

SCRIP is a fundraising program that allows friends of MAEL to purchase gift cards from over 500 participating retailers. The retailers then donate a percentage of gift card sales back to our program. Please visit the Great Lakes Scrip Center website at glscrip.com to view all participating retailers. If you see a retailer on the website that you would like to order from, simply download the form and write your order along the bottom. Orders may be sent to school with students or taken to the main office. 

Order forms are periodically sent home with students, but can always be picked up in the front office.  Parents can pick up SCRIP cards in the front office or can elect to have their SCRIP cards sent home with their child.
