Without proper nutrition, kids can’t concentrate or perform well in school. Our Target Meals for Minds program brings food to K-12 students and families in need. Now active in elementary schools in 42 cities across the country, and powered by our partnerships with Feeding Americalink opens in a new window and local food banks, the program offers students access to fresh foods and staples right at their own schools.

take charge of education

Since we launched Take Charge of Education (TCOE) in 1997, we’re proud to have donated over $460 million to more than 120,000 schools across the country through the program, with the help of our guests. We’re proud of the impact TCOE has made, and look forward to continuing to focus on youth, through the lens of wellness, whether through in-school or out of school or related community programming.

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 2015, Target gave more than $2.5 million on behalf of Target to 57 NGOs in 13 countries.
