The Taco Bell Foundation breaks down barriers to educate and inspire the next generation of America’s leaders. Since 1992, the Taco Bell Foundation has reached more than 4 million young people across the country and has awarded more than $110 million in Live Más Scholarships and grants to youth-serving nonprofit organizations focused on education and career readiness.
Donations collected in U.S. Taco Bell restaurants through the Round Up Program support the Live Más Scholarships for Consumers Program, the Community Grants Program, and educational programming. Donations from Taco Bell franchisees support Live Más Scholarships for Restaurant Employees.
The Live Más Scholarship fuels bold ambitions through funding, professional connections, and opportunities.
Community Grants program
Each year, grants and scholarships are given in and around communities where Taco Bell® does business. These efforts are made possible because of generous customers, Taco Bell team members, vendors, partners, and local Taco Bell leadership. In 2021, the Taco Bell Foundation awarded $10 million to nearly 400 youth-serving nonprofit organizations.
