Your Change Can Change Lives

Join us in breaking down barriers to education!

The Taco Bell Foundation is primarily funded by Taco Bell Corp, Taco Bell’s Franchisees, and Taco Bell’s loyal customers and fans. Franchisees support the Taco Bell Foundation through participation in Owners’ Giving Circle, personal giving at private events, and by promoting the Round Up program. Customers and fans of the brand support the Taco Bell Foundation by rounding up their order total when they visit a Taco Bell restaurant. 











The Taco Bell Foundation’s Round Up program supports youth nationwide with scholarships, educational experiences, and community support! Through Round Up, customers and fans of the brand can donate to the Taco Bell Foundation all year long by rounding up their total to the nearest dollar at the front counter, kiosk, at the drive-thru, and on the web and mobile app. In 2021, the Round Up program raised $15 million for students nationwide. Taco Bell Franchise Owners play a large role in motivating their restaurant teams to share the Taco Bell Foundation’s mission with customers and encourage them to round up 

Thank you to the Franchise Owners whose restaurants helped raise an average of $5,000 or more per restaurant location that they own or raised a total of $1 million or more last year.
