Target youth soccer grants

Soccer’s so much more than a game—it’s a passion that connects people of every age and culture all around the world. And with millions of kids playing in youth soccer leagues, it makes it one of the top youth-participation sports in the U.S. That’s why we support the Target youth soccer grants program, giving more kids a chance to play.

Future at Heart: Soccer


The Target youth soccer grants program provides support for player registration fees, player and field equipment, and training and professional development for volunteer coaches. Any eligible school, government agency, non-profit organization or non-profit regional/local soccer organization within the U.S., serving youth 5 to 18 years old, can apply. A preference will be given to programs serving in-need communities.



We will be accepting grant applications between noon CDT Aug. 1 and noon CDT Sept. 1, 2020.

As part of the program, Target will provide annual $1,000 grants on behalf of each Target store and distribution center in the U.S. to federally tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, accredited schools, or public agencies located in the U.S. or one of its protectorates that have soccer programs serving youth 5 to 18 years old. We accept grant applications between noon CDT Aug. 1 and noon CDT Sept. 1. Grants will be awarded in December 2020.

Email notification of the decision will be sent to the individual who completed the application.

Note: A public agency is an organization established and primarily funded by the U.S. government, such as public schools, public libraries, public parks, and law enforcement agencies. A public agency must be able to provide a valid Government affirmation letter or have a valid NCES number.
