Make sure to file these secrets away for your Target shopping trips. Even better, shopping at Target won't just help you; it will help others, too. Target Corporation is regularly named as one of the most philanthropic companies in the US. Earning accolades from both "Fortune" and "Forbes", it ranked as the leading American company in cash-giving by percentage of income in 2005. Target donates around 5% of its pre-tax profit annually, including over $3 million a week to the areas in which it operates. Target also supports the families of patients at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. Their donation of $27 million funded the building of 96 furnished apartments for families needing to stay at St. Jude over 3 months.
