Who We Support

Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America provides Clubs the tools and resources they need to help recruit, impact and retain teens through programs like Youth of the Year and Keystone Clubs. Since 2013, the Taco Bell Foundation has granted nearly $20 million dollars to approximately 300 Clubs across the country.

City Year

Together, the Taco Bell Foundation and City Year are inspiring thousands of young people to follow their dreams and become leaders ready to change the world. City Year AmeriCorps members commit to serve a year in public schools in high-need communities to help students stay in school and on track to graduate from high school, ready for college and career success. In 2018, nearly $200,000 dollars will go back to impact students in Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, Ohio, Texas and Washington DC.

In 2018, and the Taco Bell Foundation launched a national campaign – “Team Up, Dream Up” – to support young people and their passions. We teamed up to encourage people to follow their passion and help their friends do the same. Together, we showed that positive recognition from peers has a major impact on a young person’s future success.

Junior Achievement

In 2018, we will provide more than $275,000 to eight Junior Achievement sites to support high school programs that help students make informed, intelligent decisions about their future, and foster skills that will be highly useful in the business world.


MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership is working to close the “mentoring gap” and ensure our nation’s young people have the support they need through quality mentoring relationships to succeed at home, school, and ultimately, work. In the summer of 2018, the Taco Bell Foundation piloted three workshops for Live Más Scholarship recipients in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Minneapolis where MENTOR facilitated an interactive training experience to strengthen the scholars’ confidence and ability to identify and secure mentors.


Moneythink works to eliminate barriers to college access and success for under-resourced, college-bound youth through financial education and personalized college coaching. In 2018, the Taco Bell Foundation will provide $35,000 to support over 2,000 students as they navigate the financial decisions inherent to postsecondary education and increase their likelihood of persisting to graduation.
