Ingles Tools for Schools

Ingles Tools for Schools

What Is The Tools For Schools Program?

When customers sign-up for the Tools For Schools program and make purchases using the Ingles AdvantageTM Card, Ingles will give back to the school a portion of the total sales. The portions can be used to purchase computers and school supplies for the schools.

How Do Customers Sign Up?

The sign-up is a one time process that will take place at the beginning of the school year.
(Note: participants must sign up each school year to enroll for that year.)
The school that is designated by the customer is linked to the customer’s Ingles AdvantageTM Card until May 1st of the current school year. Ingles will maintain a cumulative total for the school (only one school can be designated per household) the customer has selected and will provide the reward to the school on the pay out period date.
