Help Us Support Education in Your Community
Recent reports tell us that a quarter of U.S. students do not graduate from high school on time. For young people of color, this number is close to 40 percent. Sadly, it is not news that fewer and fewer of us in the U.S. successfully graduate. Nor is it news that America’s educational system must better address the 21st century needs of our citizens.

Through our Youth Action Grants , we’ve supported young people in the U.S. and around the world in taking action to address needs in their … more »

He’s speaking directly to me, I thought. That’s where Howard describes a trip to one of our stores in Japan where he finds a hand-made Braille menu. In the book, he talks about rubbing his finger across the Braille and wishing that “everyone at Starbucks could experience this with me.” I’m sure you all know that Onward is available in multiple languages, but did you know that it is also available in electronic … more »
Starbucks + CFDA/VOGUE FASHION FUND Inspire Designer Tees

As a frequent collaborator with the design and artist community, we are proud to team up with and contribute to the CFDA/VOGUE FASHION FUND (CVFF), an esteemed organization that gives annual grants that provide resources to support and encourage the goals of emerging American fashion designers.
