The Starbucks Foundation supports programs for youth 6-18, that integrate literacy with personal and civic action in the communities where they live. Funding for the Foundation has come mostly from Starbucks Coffee Company and also from individual donations. This is one element of Starbucks continuing efforts to give back to its communities.
