Since the programвЂ™s inception in 2000, KohlвЂ™s has raised more than $126 million. KohlвЂ™s associates are also encouraged to support local, youth-focused nonprofit organizations through KohlвЂ™s A-Team program. Through KohlвЂ™s A-Teams, associates form teams of five or more. The teams volunteer at a local childrenвЂ™s charity, and KohlвЂ™s supports their participation with a $500 corporate grant given directly to the charity.
