Spring Charity Sale raised more than $5 million for hundreds of nonprofits
Belk’s Fall Charity Sale on November 7 will once again benefit local charities, schools and nonprofit organizations throughout the company’s 16-state market area. Belk’s previous Charity Sale, held May 2, 2009, raised more than $5 million for hundreds of participating nonprofit organizations.
The four-hour, in-store shopping event offers an excellent fundraising opportunity for participating organizations and a chance for customers to support worthwhile charities and take advantage of special discounts on purchases made during the event.
In exchange for a $5 donation, customers will receive a ticket admitting them to the Charity Sale on November 7 from 6 to 10 a.m. and entitling them to merchandise discounts ranging from an extra 15 to 50 percent on purchases throughout the store, including special savings on rarely discounted brands. Customers will also receive $5 off their first purchase of $5 or more at the event, and Belk cardholders will receive double Rewards points for card purchases.
Participating local charities will sell the Charity Sale tickets in advance of the event and all proceeds from each $5 ticket sold will be retained by the charity. Beginning Friday, October 30, tickets may also be purchased at Belk stores with all donations equally divided among the participating charities and schools. There is no limit to the number of tickets charities can sell, and no limit to the amount of money that can be raised. Belk provides tickets and collateral material at no cost to the participating nonprofit organizations.
In addition, participating customers can register to win one of three $1,000 Belk shopping sprees, and all participating charities and schools will automatically be registered to win one of three $1,000 donations from Belk.
The event, held semi-annually since Fall 2007, has raised an excess of $14 million for participating nonprofit organizations throughout the Southeast.
Charity representatives interested in taking part in this one-of-a-kind fundraising event should contact their local Belk store manager for more information.
