Take Charge of Education
Do you have a TARGET RED CARD? Did you know that the Target Red Card gives you 5% off your purchases and gives an additional 1% to our school? It's easy to get one - Click here!
Target's "Take Charge of Education" helps us raise money for our school—for books, activities, reading programs and anything else that can use extra funding.
Here’s how it works:
Apply for a Target REDcard debit or credit card at checkout the next time you shop (a voided personal check is needed for the debit card). There is no charge to apply. You will save 5% off your bill at every purchase and 1% of all your purchases will go to the school of your choice (VES!). Schools receive a check from The Target Corporation every September. Once you sign up it’s important to designate Vineyard Elementary School. You can call 1-800-316-6142 or go online at Target.com/tcoe
Follow these easy steps:
1. Click on ﬁnd a school under the heading Already Have a REDcard?
2. Enter city, state and school name (Vineyard Elementary, Templeton, CA)
3. Click select this school and enter your REDcard information
If you already have a REDcard go to Target.com/tcoe and make sure you have selected VES as your school. You can check on our school’s donation progress by entering your REDcard number under the heading "Already Enrolled?"
Let friends and family know that they can designate Vineyard Elementary School to receive funds too! Use your REDcard whenever you shop. The more people we involve, the more the program works for our school. If you’re already participating, thank you! The number of REDcard holders who have designated this school is only 81 REDcard users, and we have over 200 families at VES, surely we can generate some much needed funding using this simple program. Don't delay, sign up today!
