Target is committed to partnering with law enforcement because they believe that the private sector has a responsibility to support law enforcement and criminal justice agencies in the interest of public safety. Through the Community Engagement Fund (CEF) grants, they provide public safety agencies and their 501c3 partner organizations with support for crime prevention projects, programs, and events.?
Eligible activities include, but are not limited to:
Eligible agencies interested in being considered for a potential public safety-focused grant should contact their local Target store or distribution center's Assets Protection (AP) team for a meeting to provide information around their program and overall funding request.
None is available.
Ineligible expenses include:
Eligible applicants are public agencies and 501(c)(3) charitable organizations operating in the US. Projects must take place within 100 miles of a Target store or distribution center.
Note: A public agency is an organization established and primarily funded by the U.S. government, such as public schools, public libraries, public parks, and law enforcement agencies. A public agency must be able to provide a valid IRS government affirmation letter (e.g. law enforcement agencies) or NCES number (e.g. schools).
Grants are managed locally by Target field teams. Interested agencies should contact their nearest Target store or distribution center's Assets Protection team to further discuss the potential for public safety-focused funding.
Individual award amounts vary.
