grants

Education, the arts, public safety—these are just a few of the areas we support through our grants programs.

our legacy of giving continues

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 grants from our stores. Each year, Target store grants help K-12 schools and nonprofit organizations bring arts and cultural experiences to students, provide support for educational field trips and fund early childhood reading programs.

We know communities thrive when the arts are affordable and accessible, so we also sponsor free and reduced-cost admission at museums and cultural institutions across the country, opening their doors to more children and their families.

public safety grant program

Creating safe and secure neighborhoods for our guests as well as our team members is important to us. That’s why we provide Public Safety Grants to partners and organizations across the country.

education grants

kids having fun on a field trip

Throughout the year, our stores provide education grants to local K-12 schools to support educational field trips, early childhood reading programs and participation in the arts.

field trip grants

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 August 1 at noon CST to apply.

Good reading skills are key to a child’s success in school, so we award Early Childhood Reading Grants to schools, libraries and nonprofit organizations that support K-3 reading programs. Together, we’re inspiring kids to love reading and encouraging families to read together.
