As part of The Starbucks Foundation’s Neighborhood Grants program, HSA was selected to receive a $1,000 grant. This grant award is thanks to a nomination from a local Starbucks partner who recognized the work of our organization in Southeast Los Angeles. Through this unique program, The Starbucks Foundation invites Starbucks partners to nominate a local organization in their community. Since 2019, more than 8,000 organizations have been awarded grants, amounting to more than $12.5 million.
The Starbucks Foundation’s Neighborhood Grants program supports grassroots, community-led nonprofit organizations through catalytic investments in the form of grants. Neighborhood Grants also help build sustained local impact and inspire increased partner engagement with nonprofit organizations that work in their communities.
“Our partners know their communities best, and have shared great insights about the organizations helping to uplift others in their neighborhoods, from addressing homelessness and fighting hunger to supporting youth and families,” said Alicia Vermaele, executive director of The Starbucks Foundation. “Through our latest round of Neighborhood Grants, we’re proud to support local organizations nominated by Starbucks partners who make our communities stronger.”
