Supporting Social Services, Youth Workforce Development, and Inclusion & Diversity in Europe, Middle East and Africa


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 second year of the Global Community Impact Grants program, The Starbucks Foundation awarded grants to 65 nonprofits, all of which were nominated by Starbucks international licensees and will reach communities in more than 35 markets. Between grants and co-investment from international licensees, over $2.5 million has been awarded in 2023 to date for causes aligned to The Starbucks Foundation’s community impact goals, including youth workforce development, inclusion & diversity, social services, hunger relief, economic opportunity, and coffee-, tea- and cocoa growing communities.

In the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region, The Foundation awarded 22 grants across 12 markets for causes ranging from social services to youth workforce development to inclusion & diversity. Grants were awarded in Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, North Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
