Want to support your child's K-12 school without spending a dime? You can “target” your giving to the school from the Target Red Card. Don't have a Target Red Card? No problem, you can sign up for one next time you are at the register. It is not necessarily another credit card, you can also choose to have just an extension of your bank debit card. There are no fees when you choose this option and it earns you an automatic 5 percent off every time you use it at Target. You also get free shipping if you buy online at Target.com. As a community initiative, they donate a percentage to local schools, up to one percent of your purchase - you just have to let them know which one you prefer.
If you already have your Red Card the number to call is 1-888-729-7331. Follow the prompts and choose the “other” option, you'll then hear about choosing a school. It wants to know which city and school name.
