Target has a long history of community giving, mainly through philanthropy and volunteerism. We’re looking for ideas that would creatively leverage Target’s assets and capabilities (i.e. stores, digital presence, brand credibility, partnerships, marketing, etc.) to extend our support in new and innovative ways to meaningfully address community needs.
Every community is unique, often defined by geography, demographics, history, culture, struggles and successes that unite people who live or work there. Each community often also has a set of needs that limit the potential of its community members to thrive, with some in more dire states than others.
Design one game-changing idea for how Target can uniquely support a community that you know of and/or care about. Specifically, answer the following questions:
CRITIERA: Think outside of monetary donations. Focus on innovative and inspirational ways to use Target’s resources to solve for issues vs. identifying issues that need solving. Be creative and bold!
