As a family focused, value-oriented company, Kohl’s is committed to supporting local communities where it does business through the Kohl’s Cares for Kids program. Kohl’s sells special Kohl’s Cares for Kids merchandise, like books and plush characters, year-round with 100 percent of the net profits benefiting children’s health and education initiatives.

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