Round Up FAQs


Where does the money go?

All funds collected through the Taco Bell Foundation’s Round Up program are used to help youth nationwide pursue their educational dreams. Money raised both provides grants to youth-serving organizations focused on education and career readiness, and funds the Live Más Scholarship which supports the educational needs of future young leaders across the country.
