Grants and initiatives
Through our global program, the Target Foundation invests in organizations that are building the capacity of people and communities to create livelihood opportunities that sustain long-term prosperity for families in emerging economies.
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 with our commitment and would like us to know about it, please share more about your organization and programs via a Global General Information Form. Thank you!
Global grantee spotlight
We’re proud to support Alterna, and its mission to catalyze transformative businesses from the ground up.
Alterna is a social innovation platform that aims to transform critical systemic gaps into exceptional opportunities across five countries in Central America. Through its unique cultivation approach and business accompaniment services, Alterna works with entrepreneurs and impact driven ventures to unleash their potential.
Devoted to generating lasting change, Alterna provides entrepreneurs and micro-, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) with access to opportunities and an ecosystem in which they can thrive. Alterna also nurtures an ecosystem to work on a systemic level, linking allies with complementary services for entrepreneurs, developing projects to create a data and learning driven community.
Funded by CAF America on behalf of the Target Foundation, the grant is being used over three years to support Alterna’s strategic efforts to provide curated services and support for historically underserved entrepreneurs – delivering both direct training to entrepreneurs and training, supporting, and partnering with complementary organizations.
