Our Communities

As the leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer in the U.S. and worldwide, we have been delivering value to people’s homes for nearly 40 years. Operating over 3,600 stores in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia, we know that our business touches a lot of communities, from large cities to small towns. In that spirit, we take our support of the many communities we serve to heart and are committed to adding value to people’s lives by supporting programs designed to benefit others.

Across our TJX communities, there are families and children in need. Some lack access to basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, healthcare and freedom from abuse. Others lack access to opportunities that can be integral to future success – education, training and more. Regardless of the need, without these things, a happy home and changing your path in life may seem out of reach.

We have a global vision to help those most in need build a better future where families’ and children’s critical basic needs are met and where they have access to the opportunities they need to succeed and thrive. To achieve our vision, we provide support to organizations that help families and children. We do this through our charitable foundations, community partnerships, volunteer efforts and cause-related in-store fundraising. Through these efforts, we strive to be a Neighbor of Choice – looking to enrich the lives of our Associates, customers and neighbors who live and work in our communities.

Program Highlights

All of our brands are committed to causes that, on a broad scale, help create and support healthy families and children. Our Company makes contributions to organizations with this mission as a guide and our Associates and customers passionately help to raise money for these causes through in-store fundraising, the sale of certain merchandise in support of charitable fundraising efforts and other community initiatives.
TJX has developed community programs with many organizations to further strengthen our ties to local communities. These relationships can take on many forms and often include a combination of sponsorships, product donations, Associate volunteerism and other support.
Many of our Community Relations programs focus on youth and young adults, where we foster affiliations with schools, universities and other groups to help prepare young adults as they transition into college or the workforce. Two of our larger initiatives are the Youth Business Institute (YBI) in the U.S. and the Get Into Retail program in Europe.
