  •     The fall Belk Charity Sale provides a unique opportunity for customers to support local charities while taking advantage of special discounts of 20-75 percent off purchases made during the four-hour event.
    In return for purchasing a $5 ticket, customers get great buys on rarely discounted merchandise and other items throughout the store. Plus, customers receive a $5 credit on Charity Sale purchases completely offsetting the cost of the ticket. Charities get to keep 100 percent of the proceeds from each $5 ticket sold.     The first 100 customers in each store on the morning of Charity Sale will receive free Belk gift cards ranging in value from $5 to $100, and a chance to win one of three $1,000 Belk gift cards awarded company-wide.     Charity Sale tickets are being sold by participating non-profit organizations and may also be purchased at any Belk store. All revenues from in-store ticket purchases are equally divided among participating charities and schools in each local store. In addition, all Charity Sale participants will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $1,000 cash awards (one in each of the three Belk operating divisions) for their school or non-profit organization.


The spring 2012 Belk Charity Sale raised more than $5 million for nearly 8,000 schools and community non-profit IRS 501(c) (3) organizations in Belk markets, and last year, the two Charity Sale events raised a total of more than $10 million for participating charities.
