LM Gets $1950 From Target REDCard Program

La Mariposa Gets $$$ When You Spend with Your Target REDcard

The Target “Take Charge of Education” Program allows you to earn money for La Mariposa while doing your typical household shopping with your Target REDcard.  Target donates 1% of every dollar back to our school.  1% doesn’t seem like a lot, but when you add up what you spend per year at Target and multiply it by the number of families at La Mariposa, it adds up fast.  Target REDcard donations go straight to the school.  In the past we used these funds for various things: campus beautification, early garden supplies, and playground items.  The money goes into a general donations account.  For the most part, this type of donation is used as a way to plug holes and address items the PTA is unable to commit to.

“I anticipate that we will use the funds just as they have been used in the past–to fill in the holes–purchase items that will directly impact the student’s day to day learning.”
–Erica Williams, Principal

The great thing about the REDcard is you can get it in a debit card or a credit card.  So if you are a “cash” family you can contribute to La Mariposa, save 5% for using your RedCard, and never pay a penny of interest.  Nice, right?  That’s what we call winning.
