Supporting Youth Empowerment, Hunger Relief, and Inclusion & Diversity in Asia Pacific


The Starbucks Foundation has a 25-year history of investing in communities across the U.S. and globally. In March 2022, The Starbucks Foundation announced a $30 million investment by 2030 in its Global Community Impact Grants portfolio designed to drive locally relevant impact in the communities where Starbucks operates around the world.

In the inaugural year of the Global Community Impact Grants program, The Starbucks Foundation awarded grants to nearly 90 nonprofits, all of which were nominated by Starbucks international licensees and will reach communities in more than 40 markets. Between grants and co-investment from international licensees, over $3.2 million was awarded in 2022 for causes aligned to The Starbucks Foundation’s community impact goals, including youth empowerment, inclusion & diversity, social services, hunger relief, economic opportunity, and coffee-, tea- and cocoa-growing communities.

In Asia Pacific, The Starbucks Foundation awarded 24 grants across 10 markets for causes ranging from youth empowerment and hunger relief to promoting inclusion & diversity and advancing economic mobility & opportunity. Grants were awarded to nonprofit organizations in Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
