Belk Charity Sale: Frequently Asked Questions
What is Charity Sale? Charity Sale is a private, 4-hour sale, dedicated to supporting local non-profit organizations. Participating charities will have the opportunity to raise money for their organization, while private sale customers receive 20 to 70% off Belk purchases storewide, including special savings on rarely discounted brands.
How do organizations raise funds? Participating charities sell $5 tickets to the event. Organizations keep 100% of the proceeds from every ticket sold. By purchasing a ticket, customers can support a worthy cause and enjoy storewide discounts during the private sale.
Do organizations have to pay a fee to participate? NO. There is absolutely no cost to participating organizations. Belk provides the tickets, flyers and other promotional tools to participating organizations for free.
Does Belk keep a percentage of the ticket sales? NO. All ticket sale proceeds go directly to the participating charities.
