TARGET Card UPDATE In the last 2 weeks, we have added 5 more Target Credit Cards that have designated SBA as their School of Choice!! The Development Office is challenging the parents to try to and raise our number of cards from 55 to 75! Just think about how much money that could raise for SBA. The details of how the program works and how much it has raised so far are on the following page. If you have a Target REDcard (or if you’ve been thinking about getting one), make sure you designate SBA as your School of Choice and help us get to 75 cards!!

Just Imagine…


Saint Benedict at Auburndale Target REDcard 2011-12 Annual Fund Great News! We received a check from Target’s Take Charge of Education Program for $1,592.60. This is such a great and easy way to beef up our Annual Fund each year. We are thrilled with this gift, but out of curiosity, looked in on our school’s progress using Target’s user-friendly website. Guess what? We only have 50 Target credit cards out there that over a period of time have totaled $19,159.91 in donations over the years. CAN YOU IMAGINE IF WE ALL DESIGNATED SBA ON OUR TARGET CARDS AS OUR SCHOOL OF CHOICE? Who doesn’t go to Target? We are getting settled into the new school year, but are soon to kick-off our Annual Fund drive. If you have a quick second, there are a few scenarios below. What a GREAT way to give to the school, and after the initial sign up, it is effortless. Please consider this super-easy way for SBA to receive a percentage of the amount of each Target purchase you make with your card. If you do not have a Target REDcard, you can click the link below to download the application. If you already have a Target REDcard, you can click the link below and scroll down to the bottom right corner to designate Saint Benedict as your school of choice.
