Campus Pride receives Neighborhood Grant from The Starbucks Foundation

Campus Pride nominated by Starbucks partner to win $1,000 grant

 On January 31, 2022, Campus Pride was named one of the 1,200 nonprofits selected to receive a $1,000 Neighborhood Grant from The Starbucks Foundation. Over 11,000 Starbucks partners (employees) nominated organizations that “address a critical need in the community” for the sixth round of Neighborhood Grants. During the 2021 holiday season, Starbucks employees nominated nonprofit organizations that they were passionate about. Thank you to The Starbucks Foundation! 

“We know that our impact in communities is most meaningful when our efforts begin with our partners (employees) who know their neighbors best,” said Starbucks chief social impact officer and The Starbucks Foundation board member Virginia Tenpenny. “Since the beginning, Starbucks has been about more than coffee. We are a people company rooted in a mission to nurture the human spirit. To do this well, we will continue to invest in meaningful ways to help our communities thrive.”

“Campus Pride would not exist without the support of donors and volunteers. We are so honored to represent Charlotte, North Carolina as a Neighborhood Grant recipient. Thank you to The Starbucks Foundation for helping us to continue working with LGBTQ youth across the United States,” said Campus Pride executive director and founder Shane Windmeyer.
