Target to Give $5 Million to Schools; Vote for Your Neighborhood School!

Target has always been one of First Book’s most stalwart supporters. Their support for education in the United States is comprehensive and long-lasting.

Target to Give $5 Million to SchoolsNow they’ve embarked on an impressively gigantic new effort: $5 million for U.S. schools as part of their ‘$1 Billion for Education’ campaign. The giving campaign includes $2.5 million in grants for in-need schools and another $2.5 million in Target gift cards that local schools can use to pay for badly-needed back-to-school supplies.

If you want YOUR neighborhood school to win up to $10,000 in Target gift cards, vote for them on Target’s Facebook page. And if you work with kids at a Title I school, be sure to sign up with First Book to hear about grant opportunities like this one in the future!
