Program areas at Taco Bell Foundation

Taco Bell Foundation granted more than $5 million back to youth-serving organizations, including the boys and girls clubs of america, in and around communities where Taco Bell does business. Our local grants support programs and experiences that prepare young people for high school graduation and empowers them to channel their passions so they can go on to achieve their dreams through secondary education. Since 2013, the Taco Bell Foundation has granted nearly $32 million to approximately 300 boys and girls clubs across the country.
The live mas scholarship program is designed to help innovators and creators ages 16-24 pursue unique passions that may not necessarily fit into the traditional "academic or "athletic" scholarship categories. The application only requires submission of a two-minute video where applicants share what they love to do. The 2019 scholarship program awarded $4.4 million. The wide range of student passions include medicine, film, engineering, music and community service. In the first four years of the scholarship, the Taco Bell Foundation has already awarded $9.5 million in education support to nearly 900 students, including Taco Bell employees. Students in the program have also been given access to opportunities beyond finances, through workshops to help develop personal and professional skills, and the Taco Bell Foundation's partnership with mentor: the national mentoring partnership to foster relationship building.
