investing in our communities
Our commitment to serving the communities where we operate goes way back … all the way back to 1946. We keep that promise alive today through our dedication to serving new generations of families.
How do we do it? By creating welcoming spaces where all families can shop and find joy. By holding hands with partners and using the voice of our brands to bring communities together. By empowering the Target family—our team members across the country—to serve and support their local neighborhoods. And that’s just the beginning…
Whether it’s in our stores, on your block or at the local playground, we proudly work with partners and organizations to bring family fun to communities across the country. We celebrate the openings of our newest stores with activities for the whole neighborhood to enjoy. Our volunteers pitch in to support community nights and block parties.

Philanthropy is one way that Target can address some of the toughest social and environmental challenges in our communities. It allows us to draw on our company’s strengths including our team members, store footprint, global reach, products and partners to deliver an even greater impact. We support our communities through the Target Foundation and corporate giving.

REACH: supporting Black communities
As part of our efforts to find new ways for Target to accelerate the prosperity of Black communities, we’ll prioritize philanthropic investments and design volunteerism to address racial inequities faced by Black communities.
We proudly launched our Target Scholars Program, in partnership with the UNCF (United Negro College Fund), and will support students at more than a dozen Historically Black Colleges and Universities with scholarships.
More information about Target’s REACH efforts is available here.
You’ve probably seen them—our Target Volunteers in their red shirts—out lending a hand on projects that enrich their local communities. Our dedicated team members donate their time each year to causes like hunger relief, the environment and more.
And we’re proud to ignite their potential, connecting them with opportunities to use their talents for the good of all. In 2020, a 10,000-hour commitment of pro bono services was launched to support Black, Indigenous and People of Color-owned small businesses in the Twin Cities, facilitating the donation of team member skills in support of the small business community.
