Field trip grants applications are accepted Aug. 1 – Sept. 30.

How do I know if my organization is eligible to receive a grant from Target?

To request a charitable contribution, your organization must be a federally tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, an accredited school, or a public agency located in the United States of America or one of its protectorates.

Note: A public agency is an organization established and primarily funded by the United States government such as public schools, public libraries, public parks, and law enforcement agencies. A public agency must be able to provide a valid Government affirmation letter or have a valid NCES number.

How do we know if our organization is within the Target community?

We accept grant requests from organizations that are in the communities where Target has stores in the United States. Your organization must be within 100 miles of one of our stores in order to apply for a Target grant.

My 501(c)(3) has a pending status; do I qualify to receive a donation?

No. Target does not fund organizations with a pending 501(c)(3) status. Only organizations that are verified with a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) designation, as determined by the Internal Revenue Service, are eligible to receive donations.
