If you have a child in grades K-12 or even if you just know someone who is in school, there’s a great promotion going on right now with Target to help raise money for education. You can help give up to $2.5 million in support to schools through Give with Target.

To enter your school, click on this link and then type the name of your school in the box along with your city and state or zip. You have to enter this information before you can see a list of schools near you.

For example, once I entered my son’s school, I was asked if I wished to vote for any other schools near me and a list came up. The prompt also said I could vote again in 1 day. If your school is not in the database, then you will need to choose a different one. Sorry folks, Target does not give you the option to add your school if its not in the database.

You can vote daily now through 9/8 or when $2.5 million in Target GiftCards have been awarded, whichever happens first. For every 25 votes received for a school during the Promotion Period, Target will give them a $25 Target GiftCard with a maximum of $10,000 in gift cards allowed. For example, if your school receives less than 25 votes then they will not receive any gift cards. If they receive 50-74 votes, then they will receive $50 in gift cards.

Promotion ends 9/8 and you must be 13 years of age and older to vote. Limit one vote per person per day. You can go HERE for more details.

–Thanks Niko for the Heads Up!

    @Kerry – I represent a school that is registered with the Take Charge of Education program but is NOT included on the list for this program. Other schools in our area show up, but our school does not. How do we get our school added to the list?

    I’m trying to register my school but the website keeps taking me to FaceBook. Can you only register your school if your a member of social network? I’m not on FaceBook and there should be another way to register for people who are not members of social network. Please Advise.

    I tried to register my school. I followed your instructions as you advised. I clicked on the link and it says we cannot find your school in our data base it does not go to an application at all or add it.

  12. Julie says:

    I tried to add my school but was redirected back to the Facebook page over and over again. It will only allow me to search but not add my school.

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    If you get the message, “Sorry, we cannot seem to find that school in the database. Try searching for another school…” then you will have to pick a different school. Target does not give the option in this promotion to add a school. Hope this helps!

    I am in the administration office at our school, and we are already registered in the database, but I am not sure how we got registered or who registered us. I just want to make sure we receive the gift cards we are awarded.

  15. Kevin B says:

    How do you register a school for next year’s campaign?

  16. Holly says:

    I just wanted to make sure my school is in the database (we are registered with Take Charge of Education). Every time I click on the link it directs me to facebook and just has the “coming soon” logo/pic. Is there a way to find out before August 14th?

  17. Kerry says:

    @Kevin & Holly- looks like we won’t be able to do anything until the 14th. planning to post so stay tuned!

  18. Patricia says:

    I searched for my daughters school and 2 options popped up. The one that could be the school was the same city and state but different zip code. In the zip code that it shows there is no school there. How do I find out if it is the school I’m looking for?

  19. Jo says:

    Our school is part of the Take Charge of Education Program but doesn’t show up on the list, how can I get this added, I tried your suggestion and it didn’t work.
