The TJX Foundation
The TJX Foundation focuses its charitable giving on programs that provide basic-need services to disadvantaged children, women and families in communities where we do business. In 2012, The TJX Foundation supported over 1,500 nonprofit organizations in the U.S. In addition to our Foundation-related contributions, we support many other organizations in Canada and Europe. You can learn more about our efforts by reading our Mission Statement and Giving Guidelines below. If your nonprofit organization would like to apply for potential funding from The TJX Foundation, you will find information to guide you through the application process in this section of our website. While we cannot fund all worthy causes, we will carefully review all eligible applications.
Our Foundation’s Mission
The TJX Foundation has a primary mission of contributing to programs that provide basic-need services to disadvantaged children, women and families in communities where we do business. The Foundation seeks to support 501(c)(3) charities that conform to the following guidelines:
- Civic/Community: Emphasis will be on programs that teach disadvantaged persons independent living skills and improve race/cultural relations.
- Domestic Violence Prevention: Support will target immediate emergency services and shelter accommodations for victims and family members affected by abusive situations as well as programming that works to break the cycle of violence.
- Education: Support will go to programs that provide academic and vocational opportunities for the disadvantaged, including early intervention, mentoring, tutoring, GED and college coursework, as well as programs that teach people to speak, read and write English.
- Health: Support will go to programs that provide early and comprehensive prenatal services and healthy-baby education. We also consider funding for medical research that furthers the treatment of, or eliminates the impact of, congenital or chronic diseases.
- Social Services: Disadvantaged children and families will be the primary beneficiaries of these contributions. We will give to programs that strengthen the family unit, along with the parent/child relationship; offer food and clothing assistance; and provide counseling, youth development or adoption services. We also support programs that directly help those with mental or physical impairments.
