Disaster and crisis response
We’re committed to the communities we serve, so in times of crisis or humanitarian need, we make sure our team members and nonprofit partners have what they need to help communities. Our global supply chain can move quickly to support our stores and guests. And all year round, we provide relief organizations with local donations and funding.
Since 2001, we have partnered with Feeding America in their fight to end hunger in the U.S. We donate millions of pounds of food each year, providing millions of meals to families in need.
In 2021, nearly all of our 1,900 stores and 44 distribution centers participated in The Great Giftogether, providing comfort and joy to families in their communities. In partnership with local nonprofits, team members shopped for, wrapped and delivered gifts that helped to spread cheer to nearly 4,000 families in need during the holiday season.
Local neighborhood support
- Community Engagement Funds: Our Community Engagement Funds (CEF) allow our stores and distribution center leaders across the country to support local programs and organizations that bring joy to families and address critical needs in their communities. CEF grants are made by invitation only.
- Local Store Giving: Our local stores care about the communities they are in. If your organization is a non-profit 501(c) 3, accredited school or government agency, you may go to our store to request a Target GiftCard donation.
- Note: To be considered, please fill out this form completely and bring into your local Target store. You will need to provide a Government Affirmation letter or other IRS-provided letter for verification of your nonprofit organization or public agency (i.e., public school, public library) status. GiftCard donations are available Feb-Dec, as funding permits. An average donation is $25-50 with the maximum donation of $500 per year, per agency. Target does not donate merchandise. Stores typically take up to 30 days to review and respond with an approval or decline.
We demonstrate our commitment to supporting our hometown communities of Minneapolis and St. Paul through our strong legacy of volunteer engagement, corporate giving and local store giving. Each year, we donate millions in cash grants and in-kind product donations in the Twin Cities, including corporate giving grants to support local nonprofit organizations. Our commitment to supporting organizations in the Twin Cities is unwavering, and we will continue to address our community’s needs now and in the future. (Investments through this program are made by invitation only.)
We are committed to the communities around the globe where our team members live and work. We provide grants to support organizations working to strengthen these communities. (Investments through these programs are made by invitation only.)
Diversity, equity & inclusion
We embrace diversity and strive to create more equitable and inclusive communities, giving everyone the same access to opportunities. We do this by reducing disparities and championing societal impacts for communities to thrive with a focus on Asian, Black, Hispanic/Latino, LGBTQIA, military and veterans, people with disabilities and women team members, guests and communities.
Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is reflected in the way do business and how we engage with our team, guests and communities. Through strategic partnerships, sponsorships, programs and volunteerism, we leverage our resources to help reduce disparities, to provide equitable and inclusive opportunity and to strengthen the diverse needs of the communities we serve. Examples or the organizations we support include the National Museum of African American History and Culture, Smithsonian Latino Center, and GLSEN.
