National retailer, Target, has announced a charitable initiative designed to bring arts and cultural experiences directly to K-12 children. The company will be awarding grants of $2,000 for programs that enhance the classroom curricula by bringing the arts and cultural experiences to schools via in-school performances, artist-in-residency programs and workshops, among others. Programs must take place between September 2013 and August 2014.
Grants will be restricted to K-12 educational institutions and organizations with tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Applications are accepted between March 1 and April 30 each year, with grant awards announced in September.
