Every year, the Target Store Grant program provides grants to K-12 schools and other nonprofit organizations working to provide reading and arts programs for children and youth. Target Early Childhood Reading Grants are awarded to schools, libraries, and nonprofit organizations to support programs such as afterschool reading events and weekend book clubs. Grants are intended to help foster a love of reading and encourage children, preschool through third grade, to read with their families.
Target Arts and Culture in Schools Grants are intended to enhance classroom curricula by bringing music, dance, drama, and visual arts programs into the classroom. These grants are designed to help bring performers to schools so children can experience the arts and learn new forms of self-expression. Eligible programs include in-school performances, artist in residency programs, and workshops in schools.
