IN THE SPOTLIGHT

STARBUCKS HOMETOWN COMMITMENT

Honoring its Seattle roots, Starbucks is proud to support local initiatives that make Seattle a great place to live, work and play through partnerships with like-minded local organizations and the cultural traditions that shape our community. Little Big Show is one of the many ways Starbucks brings the community together in support of arts education programs. Over the last 40 years Starbucks has helped celebrate and support many local arts programs and traditions, including Bumbershoot, the Seattle International Film Festival and Hot Java Cool Jazz at the Paramount.

Starbucks' commitment to Seattle also includes grants to support critical local human services, investment in skills training programs for disadvantaged youth, and ongoing community service by Starbucks partners (employees).  Starbucks partners have been invaluable members of ArtsFund’s Board of Trustees, Allocations Committees, and Associates Programs.  ArtsFund is proud to spotlight Starbucks Hometown Commitment.
