Target: Kids Ideas Are The Best Ideas
Target is giving up to $5 million this school year to schools everywhere in America in an initiative to promote health and activity for kids in their learning environment. Target is thrilled to invite public school students, grades K-12, to think up and develop projects that will help them to live healthier and more active lives, at school and beyond.

Back to School Prep 4 Success
The start of a new school year is an exciting time. Target knows that having the right gear is key to success in the classroom, so we’re giving guests the chance to help students that need it the most prepare. As part of Target's Back To School Prep 4 Success campaign, Target and Yoobi are teaming up to get backpacks, notebooks, crayons and other supplies into more elementary school kids’ hands this school year.

Now through Sept. 9, every time guests like or share Target’s Back to School Prep 4 Success video on Facebook, a donation will be made to the Kids In Need Foundation to provide backpacks & supplies, with a total donation value up to $6.5 million.*

Youth Soccer Grants Program
In addition, to help more kids and families get in on soccer fun, Target just announced a four-year, $14 million commitment to local youth soccer, including an $8 million local soccer grant program. It’s Target's latest investment in helping grow the sport.

Now through Aug. 30, eligible schools, government agencies and nonprofit organizations can apply to receive a $1,000 grant on behalf of each of Target's stores and distribution centers to help cover player registration fees, field equipment and gear, and professional development for volunteer coaches. The application can be found here
