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 more than 90 nonprofits, all of which were nominated by Starbucks international licensees and will reach communities in more than 45 markets. Between grants and co-investment from international licensees, more than $3.8 million was 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.
