In the spirit of “Giving Tuesday,” Kohl’s said it will award $3.2 million in grants to more than 300 nonprofit organizations across the country that work to improve the health and wellness of children and families as part of its national giving program, which is an extension of the company’s ongoing commitment to health and wellness.
More than 300 organizations will receive a $10,000 grant from Kohl’s. The donations made through Kohl’s National Giving Program are made possible through Kohl’s philanthropic program, Kohl’s Cares, which sells children’s books and toys and donates all net profit to charitable initiatives nationwide.
“Giving back to the communities our Kohl’s associates and customers call home has always been the heart of who we are as a company. This Giving Tuesday, as an extension of our ongoing efforts to support family health and wellness, we’re thrilled to announce that we will be providing $3 million in grants to support organizations that champion the health and wellbeing of children and families,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s CEO. “Our associates support their communities year-round by volunteering for local charitable organizations. This grant program is just one more way that we can pitch in to make a positive difference at the local level.”
