Corporate Philanthropy

Caring for others is an important part of the culture at TJX. Throughout our more than 40-year history, we have worked hard to be a good corporate citizen and bring value to people’s lives – not just in our stores, but in our communities, where we work to enrich the lives of others. Our corporate giving follows our global philanthropic platform and is focused around four key themes:

In the U.S., Canada, and Europe, we have charitable foundations that provide needed funding to our communities. Each of these foundations has its own focus that supports our global social impact areas.

Our foundations proudly support a variety of organizations, from national charitable groups to local organizations. This support can include donations to local charities when we open a new store or grants to Associate-recommended organizations that fit our giving guidelines. Sometimes we are also able to combine Associate volunteerism with our foundation giving, as we believe this makes our philanthropic efforts more meaningful to our Associates and customers and adds value in our local communities. In 2019, our community efforts globally, including our foundation giving, supported more than 1,700 nonprofit organizations worldwide.

Giving Guidelines and information on how to apply for funding are available online for our U.S. foundation. Read more about our Giving Guidelines and information on how to apply for our U.S. foundation funding online.

Making a Difference:
Disaster Relief

For more than 25 years, TJX has contributed generously to Red Cross chapters around the globe, as well as to other nonprofit organizations that help local communities rebuild in the wake of devastating disasters.

In addition to our annual support of the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, we donated money and supplies and conducted fundraisers in 2019 for targeted relief efforts for the American Red Cross, Save the Children U.S., Habitat for Humanity, and to the Banco de Alimentos de Puerto Rico (the Feeding America food bank in Puerto Rico). In the aggregate, we donated more than $1 million to our disaster relief partners in 2019.

In Canada, once again we provided disaster relief in support of the people affected by the flooding in Montreal, Ottawa, and surrounding areas through the Canadian Red Cross. We also contributed to Canada Strong, a campaign that provides support to those impacted by the tragedy of the Ukrainian International Airlines crash, which directly impacted our TJX Canada family in early 2020.

In 2018 in Europe, we became partners with the British Red Cross and joined their Disaster Relief Alliance, which has helped us to be more proactive with our emergency response support. In early 2020, we made an incremental contribution in support of victims of severe winter storms in the U.K., which had a significant impact on a number of U.K. communities in which many of our Associates live and work. Our donation supported the British Red Cross teams in responding to storm Dennis and others in a number of locations across the country with emergency accommodations, medical attention, and emotional support.

TJX helping during Australian bushfires


Our Australian colleagues faced an unprecedented crisis beginning in late 2019 as bushfires tore through their nation. The bushfires displaced thousands of families, destroyed thousands of homes, and decimated the local wildlife. Over that time, we worked to help support our Australian Associates and the broader community.

In 2019, our community efforts globally supported more than 1,700 organizations, positively impacting people on four continents.
