Changes to Target's Take Charge of Education™ Program, May 2016

Community giving has always been, and continues to be, a cornerstone of our company. Since 1946, we've given five percent of our profits back to the communities where our guests and team members live and work. This year, Target reached a significant milestone in that giving: Over $1 billion of support to education. We're glad that you've chosen to join us in supporting our schools and communities - by shopping with us and by using your REDcard™ to participate in Take Charge of Education.

As we continue to look for the most impactful ways to support the causes that are most important to our guests, Target has decided to end the Take Charge of Education program as of May 14, 2016. Schools have been informed of the change and will still receive their annual payout check in February, as well as a final check shortly after the program ends. That means that your qualifying REDcard purchases made before then, including your holiday shopping this year, will still count toward your designated school's payout.

While this is a change in how we give, we remain committed to being a vital part of our communities. Target will continue to support education through other programs, and will also expand our giving to include more connections to wellness. We thank you for being part of that support, and encourage you to watch for the new ways we will make contributions in your community.

Best Regards,
Target Card Services

Kolb Elementary School is excited to welcome Joyce Gibson as its new principal, effective the 2015-16 school year. Gibson’s appointment was confirmed by the Board of Trustees at the Monday, July 27 special meeting of the Board of Trustees.
