Twelfth season of the program marks $1.7 million raised for area schools
Tops Friendly Markets announced that, during the month of September, it is offering schools the chance to earn double the rewards as part of its “Tops in Education” program.
Participants enrolled in the program will now be able to earn up to 10% for their school(s) during the entire month of September. Beginning Sept. 1, designated school(s) will earn double the rewards when shoppers purchase participating products including Tops Brand, Full Circle, TopCare, Tippy Toes, Simply Done, That's Smart, and Best Yet with a registered Tops BonusPlus Card.
“As the school year is just getting underway, Tops wants to ensure that our local schools have the tools they need in order to succeed,” said Kathleen Allen, senior manager of community relations for Tops Markets. “From funding school fieldtrips and school dances to extra supplies for the classroom and youth sports, Tops has learned that the supplemental funding that ‘TIE’ has afforded these school districts has truly been a blessing.”
Since the program’s inception in 2012, Tops has donated more than $1.7 million to over 1,000 participating schools.
To register, visit www.topsmarkets.com/education. A shopper can designate up to three schools in grades K-12 to receive funds from the program during the 2023-24 school year (Sept. 1 through May 31, 2024).

Allen said, “This program provides a great value for our customers while helping to provide funding for educational needs in the communities we serve. As we at Tops strive to help eradicate hunger and improve the quality of life for children, we couldn’t be more proud of this achievement of donating more than $1.7 million back to local K-12 schools over the past 11 years, through ‘Tops in Education.’ ”
