From the Target web site:

Did you know there’s an easy way to help us raise money for our school—for books, band uniforms, reading programs and anything else that can use extra funding? It’s called Take Charge of Education, and it’s helping our school right now.

Here’s how it works: Visit or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate our school, then use your REDcard whenever you shop. When you use your REDcardSM (Target® Visa® Credit Card, Target Credit Card® or Target Check Card®), Target will donate up to 1% of your purchases to the eligible K–12 school of your choice.*

Don’t have a REDcard? It’s easy to apply. Get started in person at any Target store or go to

Grandparents, alumni, friends and neighbors are all welcome to participate in the program. The more people we involve, the harder the program works for our school. If you’re already participating, thank you! Check out our school’s progress anytime at
