Taco Bell Foundation for Teens

Taco Bell Foundation for Teens’ mission is to inspire and enable teens to achieve MAS.

Since 1995, the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens has awarded more than $35 million to Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), making it BGCA’s largest supporter of teens to date. In 2012, BGCA honored Taco Bell as the first corporation to receive its Lifetime Achievement Award for 20 years of its sustained commitment to teens.

In 2013, Taco Bell Foundation for Teens will help BGCA to strengthen our Keystone program to help it play an even larger role in recruiting and retaining teens – a key to our academic success/high school graduation strategy. In addition, local Taco Bell franchisees will raise funds to support these national efforts by providing college, career and community experiences to Club teens located in the communities served by Taco Bell restaurants. 

19% of Club members are 13-15 years of age.
