    to vs toward

    I can't find the difference between to vs toward

    Can I put "to" instead of "toward" in the sentence below?

    You don't need to thank everyone you've ever met or members of your family that have done nothing toward this.

    I don't think so. It's possible, but sounds much less natural.

    Re: to vs toward

    graduated student

    towards/toward(to + wards/ward)denote the direction to something(like skyward, heavenward).to mostly denotes a relation.Ofcourse the relation can be 'direction', but it frequently denote intention, position, etc.
