Who We Are


The Taco Bell Foundation helps young people explore their career passions – with scholarships, experiences and community support.


Our vision is a world where young people have the opportunity to pursue their passions, carve out their own unique paths, and boldly disrupt conventions for the greater good. When young people can pursue their passions to make a difference through education and training, they can move the world forward.
