national and local giving

Being a good neighbor is a big part of our philosophy. One of the ways we connect with the communities where we do business is through local giving. Each year, Target grants help K-12 schools and nonprofit organizations by providing support for field trips and funds for what they need the most.

Target Foundation

Our unwavering commitment to serving and supporting our communities around the world has long been a part of Target’s DNA. More than a century ago, we established the Target Foundation (formerly the Dayton’s Foundation) with the goal of investing in our hometown community. Each year, the foundation has donated approximately $9 million in grants to organizations across the Twin Cities.

The Target Foundation is in the process of evolving its grants program, continuing its commitment to our hometown community now and in the future. Check back soon for more information and grant application details.

Target field trip grants

Throughout the year, our stores provide grants to local K-12 schools to support educational field trips. Learning opportunities extend far beyond the classroom, but it’s becoming more difficult for schools to fund trips to museums, historical sites and other cultural destinations. Since 2007, our field trip grants program has made it possible for millions of students to go on a field trip.

Check back Aug. 1, 2019 at noon CDT to apply.
