Our Partners

The Costa Foundation could not change lives without our delivery partners. We work with each of our partners very closely to deliver against our promises on every single project. We supply the means, but our partners make it happen.

Our Costa Foundation store Champions

Inside our Costa Coffee stores we have Costa Foundation store champions. Alongside their daily job they help fundraise for our charity. You may see some of the activities that they do on the last Friday of each month, the “Foundation Friday”.

Our Team

A very special group of people, most of whom have other ‘day jobs’, make up the Costa Foundation team. Whether a trustee, a volunteer or a core team member, each and every one of these people has helped to change lives.

I want to say a big thank you to Costa for building me this beautiful school with so many things to learn and play with!
