About the Donor: Target

To help all families discover the joy of everyday life—that’s Target’s purpose. As one of the largest U.S. retailers, Target serves our guests at more than 1,900 stores nationwide and at Target.com. We are committed to providing inclusive and sustainable choices that support the needs of our guests, align with their values and uplift and protect the people, communities and ecosystems all along our value chain.

Diversity and inclusion are at the core of our team’s culture, and for the last 15 years, we’ve worked to build a diverse workforce as we strive to give everyone access to the same opportunities and build teams that represent our guests. And we’ve been on a journey to embed equity and advance justice within our company and communities— through developing a diverse, supportive workplace built on inclusivity to support suppliers and entrepreneurs that represent our guests and communities.

In 2021, we established the Target Scholars Program [UNCF.org/TargetScholars], in partnership with UNCF, to make higher education more affordable for more Black students, and provide students mentoring, internship opportunities, networking and more throughout their college career. The program is the latest way that Target’s supporting the next generation of Black talent, helping build the workforce for the future. The program is also part of Target’s commitment to social justice and racial equity, under the guidance of the company’s Racial Equity Action and Change (REACH) committee.
