Through past and future programs and partnerships, we support kids where they live, learn and play.

every kid deserves a bright future

We believe every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. Over the years, we’ve supported programs and activities that benefit education at all levels. As our corporate social responsibility strategy evolves to focus on wellness, we’ll continue to support education, designing wellness solutions to benefit youth, both in school and out. 

international giving

Our team members live and work in nearly 30 countries around the world. To strengthen those communities, we launched the Target International Giving Program in 2002, supporting disaster relief and education programs for children and youth. In 2014, Target gave more than $2.5 million on behalf of Target to 69 NGOs in 13 countries.
