We Live Together, Let’s Give Together

Starbucks baristas and customers have been supporting communities together for a while now. Whether it’s working side by side at community service projects or making contributions to disaster relief efforts, we’re proud of what we’ve done and are looking forward to how much more we can still achieve.

Throughout April, we’re offering a new way for you to help us support communities in the United States by helping us decide where to invest $4 million from the Starbucks Foundation.

It’s called Community Card: Vote. Give. Grow., and here’s how it works: we’ve identified 124 non-profit organizations that are addressing holistic needs in their communities like education, employment and housing.

Starting this week, sign in to your Starbucks account at votegivegrow.com and browse organizations in your area by city or state. Cast a vote for the non-profit you want to support, and then come back every week in April to vote again. The last day to vote is April 30.

Let’s support communities, together. All it takes is a click or two … or three … or four.

    I see above that the company identified the non-profit organizations itself that qualify to be apart of the program. How can an organization name get placed on the list and is this side of the program a one time deal (those who address housing, education, employment)?

      Thanks for your interest, jaja7171. We’re hopeful we’ll be able to offer this program again. Once complete, we’ll evaluate how effectively we met our goals. We’ll certainly share our decision and let customers and NGOs know how they can engage. - Anna C.

    Great opportunity, Anna C!

    My fingers are crossed that you can expand your list of community non-profits to include those which help our wildlife neighbors as well--I'm speaking up for them because they have no voice, but we all take pleasure from sharing the world with them.

    I think this is a wonderful thing. People need to recognize the needs in their communities.
