Get Free Money for Schools From Target

By Patty Wetli | Thursday, August 16, 2012

Vote for local schools to receive money from Target.

For every trip you’ve ever made to Target to grab a tube of toothpaste and walked out with $100 worth of god knows what, it’s payback time.

The retailer is doling out a total of $2.5 million to schools, K-12. All you have to do is cast a weekly vote for a neighborhood school between now and Sept. 8, and for every 25 votes a school receives, Target will send a $25 gift card, for a maximum of up to $10,000 per school. That’s right, you don’t have to spend a dime, Target does.

But you do need to lift a finger. Currently schools in New York and California are kicking Chicago’s butt in vote tallies. Let’s get some money for our kids.

You don’t need to be the parent of student, or even know a student, to vote. Just pick an elementary or high school from the list below and click for cash:

  • Alcott, Audubon, Blaine, Burley, Hamilton, Jahn, Lake View H.S., Lane Tech H.S.
