The Target Store Grant program provides grants to K-12 schools and other nonprofit organizations that 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 support programs that help foster a love of reading and encourage children 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.
Grants in both funding categories will be for $2,000 each.
Eligible applicants are nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and schools, libraries, and public agencies.
