We just negotiated an agreement with Verizon and their “Extra Credit for Schools Program” (“ECSP”). With the ECSP, Verizon donates 5% of your monthly long-distance spending to your chosen public or private school. Each quarter, a check is mailed based on dollars collected for your school.
Sign up, and all of your long distance, calling card, international and toll-free calls create additional funds to help the children and the school. And it’s simple, there’s no work for you and no extra cost.
Signing up is easy. If you already have a Verizon long distance calling plan, enrollment is as simple as calling 1-877-X-CREDIT. You’ll start earning funds for SRL right away. If you are not currently a Verizon long distance customer, call 1-877-X-CREDIT to enroll. Verizon will help you chose a plan that meets your needs and saves you money. They’ll also give you $5.00 toward the switching fee.

I signed up today. It took 2 minutes. Your participation will really make a difference to SRL and the kids.
Alternatively, you could switch to IDT, which offers unlimited long distance as part of its $39.95 monthly charge, and send half your savings to St. Rose. Unless you spend more than $400 a month on long distance, this would amount to a much larger contribution.
