Here at Target, we're proud to be a part of over three hundred communities across Australia through our stores in both metropolitan and regional areas. We want to be active members of our communities wherever possible including supporting local charities and community groups.
Target Online Community Gift Card Program
Our stores have an annual allocation of gift cards to help support local community groups and charities. Click here to find out how you can apply for a gift card donation to support a good cause within your community. Since starting the program in November 2014, Target has supported over 4,540 communities events/charities with Gift Cards.
Alannah & Madeline Foundation
Since 2008, Target has supported the Alannah & Madeline Foundation through our 'Bags for Bags' campaign across Australia, with profits from the sale of our reusable Target bags going to The Alannah and Madeline Foundation's Buddy Bags Program to support children in need. Through these sales, Target has donated over $2.3 million dollars to the Alannah and Madeline Foundation. Last November, the Target and the Alannah and Madeline Foundation packed the 60,000th Buddy Bag for children entering emergency accommodation.
