Donations and Requests
We realize there are many worthy organizations in our communities and we’d love to be able to support them all, but that is not possible. Our primary support is directed to organizations that can help address the High School dropout crisis that we face in our communities. The Boys and Girls Clubs of America are committed to addressing this issue through the development of strong teen programs. That is why we are committed to our local Boys & Girls Clubs and other worthy teen organizations in close proximity to our locations. As such, the majority of Tacala’s funds for charitable giving are earmarked for annual grants through our partnership with the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens.
If you are interested in applying for a grant for your club or organization through TBFT, please click here for more details (such as eligibility, grant size and application status). The grant cycle begins October 2013. Grants are typically funded during first and second quarters of the following year.
There are limited funds available for off-cycle grants and community events directed at teens. Our priority is teen programming to improve High School graduation in areas where Tacala does business. Please use this form to submit a request for an off-cycle grant, a community activity or other charitable donation. Please note that we will only consider donations to a 501c3 non-profit. We require a minimum of four weeks lead time for event sponsorships. Due to the high volume of requests, completing this form is the only way to submit a funding request to Team Tacala Charities.
