Barking up the RIGHT Tree!

target 2 Sunnyvale Middle School is excited to share the great news!

We are now enrolled in Target’s Take Charge of Education Program.
This is an easy way to help us raise money for our school and the best part is, it won’t cost you a penny!

Many of you already shop at Target, so you are more than halfway there! If you have a Target REDcard, Target Debit card or a Target Visa card, visit to designate Sunnyvale Middle School with our school ID # 145745. You can also call 1-800-316-6142 and link SMS over the phone.


Then simply use your Target card whenever you shop at Target and SMS will receive 1% of your purchases back to our school! It is really very simple and once you link your card to SMS, there is nothing more to do. Plus you will continue to save 5% off your total purchase every time you shop at Target using your card.


The more people we involve, the harder the program works for our school so get your family and friends to enroll too!
