                  Corporate Philanthropy

                  Caring for others is an important part of the culture at TJX. Throughout our more than 40-year history, we have worked hard to be a good corporate citizen and bring value to people’s lives – not just in our stores, but in our communities, where we work to enrich the lives of others. Our corporate giving follows our global philanthropic platform and is focused around four key themes:

                  One way we support these important social impact areas is through our three charitable entities in the U.S., Canada, and Europe (which supports programs in the U.K. and Ireland). Our foundations proudly support a variety of organizations, from the national charitable groups our retail chains partner with, to local organizations. This support can include donations to local charities with new store openings, or grants to Associate-recommended organizations that fit our giving guidelines. Sometimes we are also able to combine Associate volunteerism with our foundation giving as we believe this makes our philanthropic efforts more meaningful to our Associates and customers and adds value in our local communities. In 2018, our community efforts globally, including our foundation giving, supported more than 1,600 nonprofit organizations worldwide.

                  Making a Difference:
                  Disaster Relief

                  For more than 20 years, TJX has contributed generously to Red Cross chapters around the globe, as well as to other nonprofit organizations that help local communities rebuild in the wake of devastating disasters.

                  In addition to our annual support of the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, we donated money and supplies and conducted fundraisers in 2018 for targeted relief efforts for the American Red Cross, Save the Children U.S., Habitat for Humanity, the Foundation for the Carolinas, and Feeding America. Specifically, in the aftermath of Hurricanes Michael and Florence and the unprecedented wild fires in California, we were pleased to be able to provide relief to our Associates and their families. In aggregate, we donated more than $1.5 million to our disaster relief partners in 2018.

                  In Canada, we contributed to the Canadian Red Cross, and, thanks to the generosity of our Associates and customers, we donated $65,000 to the Ottawa-Gatineau Tornado Appeal Fund. In Europe, we became partners with the British Red Cross and joined their Disaster Relief Alliance, which has helped us to be more proactive with our emergency response support. Our early funding helped to support victims of the Indonesia earthquake and, more recently, Cyclone Idai, which affected Mozambique, Malawi, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Madagascar, as well as those suffering in Zimbabwe from food shortages.

                  A HELPING HAND

                  More than 5 million households in Florida were impacted by the devastation caused by Hurricanes Michael and Florence in 2018. With a focus on helping these families move to safe and permanent housing, Habitat for Humanity International and its local affiliates balanced emergency response with long-term planning and reconstruction.

                  Similarly, TJX moved quickly to help. We were pleased to be able to provide a financial contribution to Habitat for Humanity International’s relief efforts. Through our funding and donations from other supporters:

                  A HELPING HAND

                  In the devastating wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria in 2017 in the U.S., residents across affected areas were left without food, water, shelter, or power. Organizations and individuals around the world joined in the relief efforts – from emergency responders who worked non-stop to rescue stranded residents to private citizens who donated time and money.

                  Similarly, TJX quickly moved to help. We were pleased to be able to:
