Corporate Philanthropy


Caring for others is an important part of the culture at TJX. Throughout our more than four decades, 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 2020, our community efforts globally, including our foundation giving, supported nearly 2,500 nonprofit organizations worldwide.

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 community mission to deliver great value to our communities by helping vulnerable families and children access the resources and opportunities they need to build a better future.

TJX associates engaging in charitable causes


Our foundations proudly support a variety of organizations, from national charitable groups to local nonprofits. 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 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 2020, our community efforts globally, including our foundation giving, supported nearly 2,500 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


In addition to our key social impact areas, TJX has also supported our communities when unexpected disasters strike. We have contributed generously for more than 25 years 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 advertising space in 2020 to be used for public service announcements to help raise awareness of the need for blood donations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The donation of these media spots allowed the American Red Cross to run its PSAs more than 300 times on television.

The T.K. Maxx and Homesense Foundation has partnered with the British Red Cross since 2018 and is a member of their Disaster Relief Alliance. Our funds have helped the British Red Cross develop global emergency response strategies and helped to support victims of U.K. storms and flooding, the Indonesia earthquake, Zimbabwe food insecurity, Cyclone Idai, and many more disaster relief initiatives. In 2020, our partnership with the British Red Cross also supported people affected by COVID-19. We have also donated vouchers for the Red Cross to buy clothing and essential items for people in need.



A HELPING HAND


Canadians faced the deadliest shooting in Canadian history in April 2020. Many impacted during the incident that spanned five communities in rural Nova Scotia.

To help those communities, families, and individuals devastated by this event, we donated to the Canadian Red Cross Stronger Together Nova Scotia Fund, which was established to address some of the immediate and long-term needs of those affected.
