Black Swamp Conservancy Selected to Join Target Circle Community Giving Program

The Conservancy is excited to announce that we have been chosen to participate in a special charitable giving campaign, sponsored and funded by Target … and YOU have the chance to help direct a portion of Target’s donation to us!

We’re asking our supporters to help us make the most of this opportunity. Every vote counts to help us receive a portion of the available Target funds as we continue our mission to protect and preserve natural and agricultural lands in northwest Ohio for the benefit of future generations.

Now through ​June 30th, vote for us through the Target Circle program to help determine how Target’s donation will be divvied up. As you earn more votes, you can keep voting multiple times during the campaign!

If you are signed up for Target Circle, you can cast your votes here:

Enrolling In Target Circle

Guests in participating markets can enroll in the Giving Program for free. There are three easy ways to sign up for Target Circle:

  1. Sign up at
  2. Download the Target app
  3. Provide phone number at checkout

Earning Votes

Guests earn one vote every time they make an eligible purchase at Target, online and in-store. In this regard, it’s not your typical voting program. Members earn votes as they shop at Target.

  • Earning Votes In-Store: At checkout, a Target Guest may scan her/his Wallet barcode in the Target App at the time of purchase, or scan the barcode on her/his receipt with the Target App within seven (7) days of purchase.
  • Earning Votes Online: To earn a vote on a or Target App purchase, a Target guest must have joined Target Circle and be signed into their account when they place an order.

Casting Votes

Casting votes is a completely digital experience. A Target Circle Member may log in to his/her Target account at or on the mobile app and follow the prompts and instructions to vote. Nonprofits will display in a list with each organization’s name, logo, description, and website link.

Thank you for your support, and we encourage you to share your support for us (and your thanks to Target) on social media throughout the duration of the voting!
