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.
As part of Starbucks 12th annual Global Month of Good this April, The Starbucks Foundation awarded the inaugural round of Global Community Impact Grants to more than 50 nonprofits, all of which were nominated by Starbucks international licensees and will reach communities in more than 30 markets. Grants were awarded 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 the EMEA region, The Foundation awarded 19 grants across 13 markets for causes ranging from child inequality and food banks to humanitarian relief and support for refugees. Grants will be awarded in Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, and United Kingdom.
