As a wholly independent entity, legally structured as a separate 501(c)(3) under the United States federal tax code, the Target Foundation plays a distinct role as one of Target’s many philanthropic assets. The Foundation’s capabilities allow it to work toward long-term solutions, extending beyond the time horizon of a retail cycle-driven company. The Foundation complements the corporation’s role in the community by deploying its resources toward systemic challenges that are embedded within the social, economic and policy context. Our mission is to enable systems that empower people and communities to pursue joy in everyday life.
All families and communities have the resources they need to determine and realize their own joy in life.
The Target Foundation is rooted in the values and culture of the Target Corporation. The expression and manifestation of these values philanthropically extends the reach of the enterprise above and beyond what the company can do alone.
