Deadline: May 31, 2009

Target Stores Accepting Applications for Arts, Literacy, and Family Violence Prevention Grants

Target offers store grants to support nonprofit programs that impact the arts, early childhood reading, and family violence prevention in the locations where the company does business.

Arts Grants are awarded to programs that bring the arts to schools or make the arts accessible to children and families, such as school touring programs, field trips to the theater or symphony, or artist's residencies and workshops in schools. Programs that make the arts accessible to school children are of particular interest.

Early Childhood Reading Grants support programs that foster a love of reading and encourage children, from birth through age nine, to read together with their families.

Family Violence Prevention Grants support programs that strengthen families and communities by keeping them safe. Target store grants support nonprofit programs that help prevent family violence, such as parenting classes and family counseling. Grants may also provide assistance for support groups and abuse shelters.

Most grants average between $1,000 and $3,000 each. Applicants may be 501(c)(3) organizations or schools, libraries, or public agencies.

Target only accepts grant applications online. Visit the company's Web site for complete program guidelines and application.
