To fulfill our mission, grants and scholarships are distributed across the country each year. The Taco Bell Foundation’s fundraising efforts also help support our key educational initiatives, including our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and the Live Más Scholarship program.
The Taco Bell Foundation is a public charity established in 1992 to improve the lives of young people. Through an exclusive partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of America, the Foundation created a national program to foster educational, career and service opportunities for teens. The Foundation's goals are met through donations from Taco Bell customers, along with support from Taco Bell Corp., its employees and franchisees.
Funding supports the nearly 2,000 Taco Bell TEEN Supreme Keystone Clubs at Boys & Girls Clubs worldwide. These are small group leadership development clubs for young people ages 14-18. Additionally, there are 400 Teen Centers found at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. Each center has its own dedicated staff and teen-oriented progamming designed for the unique needs of its members.
