giving back in our own backyard
For more than 50 years, Target has been a staple of the downtown Minneapolis business community. Realizing the importance of a strong central business district, Target has grown into one of downtown’s largest employers and is a consistent supporter of its community.
We work with our team and partners across sectors to engage in local conversations to gauge where we can drive and contribute to meaningful change.
Community giving has always been a cornerstone of our company. It’s why since 1946 Target has given 5 percent of our profit, which today totals millions of dollars a week, to communities in which our guests and team members live, learn, work and play.
Through innovative programs, team member volunteerism, and strong partnerships, Target demonstrates a commitment to giving. In 2016 Target gave over $37 million in cash grants and product donations in the Twin Cities, and team members volunteered more than 100,000 hours in the community.
A few of the organizations we proudly support: Greater Twin Cities United Way, EMERGE, Science Museum of Minnesota, Metropolitan Economic Development Association, People Serving People, and YMCA.
