Starbucks Foundation Offers Funding for Youth Programs
Deadline: September 1, 2006 (Letters of Inquiry)

The Starbucks Foundation funds programs for youth, ages 6-18, that integrate literacy with personal and civic action in the communities where they live. The foundation is currently seeking Letters of Inquiry from August 1 to September 1, 2006.

The foundation’s funding areas are as follows:

Arts & Literacy: Programs that innovatively address literacy and learning for the 21st century, provide high standards of excellence in mastering basic skills, and promote youth voices through a variety of venues.

Environmental Literacy: Programs that offer place-based approaches to addressing environmental literacy and empower youth to be heroes for a sustainable environment in their own communities.

The foundation supports registered, nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organizations in the United States or Registered Charities in Canada that deliver services to youth, ages 6-18, and address at least one of the foundation’s action areas; are located in the United States or Canada; and are nondiscriminatory in their policies and practices with regard to physical abilities, gender, race, age, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, and/or creed.

In addition, priority will be given to organizations that reach traditionally underrepresented/underserved communities and communities of color; represent models in non-traditional learning environments and are directly engaged in service delivery; encourage partnerships among formal and informal education systems; demonstrate program sustainability; and provide opportunities to integrate Starbucks partners (employees of Starbucks) and stores in a meaningful way.
