- Access to opportunity: Equip organizations and systems with the capacity to create sustainable economic opportunity for families.

- Community empowerment: Equip people and communities with the tools and knowledge needed to solve their problems and shape the institutions touching their lives.
Investments through this program are made by invitation only. However, we recognize there is great work being done by organizations that may be unfamiliar to our team.

global grantee spotlight
This program will allow us to directly serve a specific group of our clients that we call Entrepreneurs who manage 'livelihood-sustaining enterprises.' These businesswomen are highly motivated, have an economically viable business model poised for growth, and are the drivers of economic development and new jobs in their communities. With this grant, we have the resources needed to support them with the right tools and internal infrastructure.
Our commitment to equity is serious and we've been clear that includes indigenous communities. It means putting our hearts into and dollars behind people – wherever home is.
We’re proud to support the work of Friendship Bridge, an organization dedicated to empowering indigenous women in Guatemala. They build relationships with rural communities where poverty rates are highest and combine microfinance, skills-based education, and preventive health services to create a path to sustained empowerment, business development and reduced household vulnerability.
The Target Foundation’s grant is helping the organization implement a new entrepreneur program, a significant part of their strategic roadmap.
