grants and initiatives
Through our national program, the Target Foundation will invest in organizations that serve communities through programs focused on:
- The changing nature of work: Equipping individuals with limited income with the skills, opportunities and resources needed to achieve their full potential in a rapidly changing economy.
- Financial resilience and inclusion: Helping low-income workers attain financial stability and security, imbuing a sense of self-efficacy, control and dignity over their financial 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. If you believe your work aligns and would like us to know, please share more about your organization and programs via a National General Information Form. Thank you!

First Nations Development Institute (First Nations)
We are grateful for the support from the Target Foundation and the strides it will make possible in building Native control of Native assets, and raising Native and non-Native awareness of solutions and actions for racial economic equity for Native peoples.
We’re proud to support First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) and its work to restore Native American control and culturally-compatible stewardship of the assets they own and to establish new assets for ensuring the long-term vitality of Native American communities. First Nations serves Native American communities throughout the United States.
The Target Foundation’s grant support will be used over the next two years to advance research on the Native American wealth gap and to build the fundraising and communications capacity of Native-led nonprofits/tribal programs focused on Native community and economic development. Funding will also support the organization’s Native Fundraisers Community of Practice project, which is a key strategy in helping Native-controlled institutions – nonprofit organizations, community groups, and tribes – become more stable and sustainable and be able to provide services to their communities.
