Belk reminds us that “It’s that time of year again when hundreds of non-profit organizations race to participate in the semi-annual Belk Charity Sale on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 6-10 a.m. The four-hour shopping sale directly benefits non-profit charities and schools, allowing them to keep 100% of each $5 ticket sold, while providing shoppers an opportunity to save 20 to 70 percent off purchases that day on seldom discounted merchandise.”
In a recent press release, we learned that Belk Charity Sale tickets are available now to participating nonprofit organizations for sale in advance of the event. Organizations keep 100% of each $5 ticket sold. There is no limit to the number of tickets charities can sell, or to the amount of money, they can raise. Belk provides tickets and informational materials at no cost to each participating organization.
“Belk is committed to being involved in our communities and supporting causes important to our customers,” said Jessica Graham, vice president, communications and community relations at Belk. “Each Belk Charity Sale offers us the opportunity to reach thousands of nonprofits across our footprint and to help them raise much needed funds.”
Beginning Friday, Oct. 28, tickets may also be purchased at Belk stores with all revenues from in-store ticket sales equally divided among participating non-profits and schools at each local store. On the morning of the Belk Charity Sale, participating non-profits and schools at each Belk location will register to win one of three $1,000 donations from Belk.
In 2010 Belk’s Charity Sale raised more than $9.5 million for hundreds of participating charitable organizations.
Charity representatives interested in taking part in this one-of-a-kind fundraising event should contact their local Belk store manager for more information. In order to participate in the Belk Charity Sale, organizations must have an IRS Section 501(c)(3) designation from the Internal Revenue Service.

This is an excellent way to help Columbia schools that so badly need supplies and equipment and local non-profits, especially with the added demands that cold weather will be bringing for hot meals, heating oil and shelter. It also helps the thrifty fashion shopper with 20-70% off storewide, $5 off your first purchase on Saturday, November 5, and a free Belk gift card for the first 100 customers. It’s truly a win-win situation. If anyone needs a wake-up call, I’m usually up before 5 AM, so just email me.
Belk is conveniently located at 3400 Forest Drive, 421 Bush River Road,100 Columbiana Circle and 670 Promenade Placein Columbia.
