Costa Foundation: More Than Coffee

*** Shortlisted as a Finalist in the Smiley Charity Film Awards 2023 ***

The Costa Foundation is the charitable branch of Costa Coffee, but raises all of its money from customer donations to carry out transformative work abroad. This film looks at how this extraordinary work is helping some of the world’s most disadvantaged children achieve a better foundation in their lives.

Motivated with a desire to give back to the communities that grow our coffee beans, the Foundation’s dedicated Store Champions have developed innovative ways to raise awareness and money for the vital work of the Foundation, building over 90 schools and 750 classrooms in 10 different countries across the world.

Despite the strain placed on collecting donations by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Costa Foundation is determined to involve customers even further in its journey and purpose, changing children’s education and ultimately their lives for the better.
