Target is also a member of national organizations. Our team members attend conferences and other events hosted by these organizations to learn about elected officials’ policy priorities and initiatives and to share a retail perspective. Target expressly requires that our funds are used only to support educational and association management activities and not for campaign contributions. Because these organizations also engage in political efforts, we disclose our memberships as political contributions.
