Introducing the DoorDash Community Credits Program

Over the past year and throughout the pandemic, our society has been forced to reimagine our approach to how we work, interact and connect with one another. Organizations that used to run in-person programming are now considering last mile delivery as an essential way to empower their work to support those in need. Additionally, organizations have increasingly turned to virtual programming and other innovative means to continue supporting the community.

As a part of this evolution, we are excited to announce the DoorDash Community Credits program. Through this effort, we are providing DoorDash gift cards* to nonprofits that are carrying out our shared goals. We know that having access to meals, essentials, and other items can make a difference for these groups as they work to create greater access and equity for their communities. Organizations in the U.S., Canada and Australia who would like to participate can start by completing this form to be considered for a donation.**

In commemoration of the 26th Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service, we are partnering with the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce in Chicago, the Los Angeles Brotherhood Crusade, CaribBEING, One Hundred Black Men and Girls for Gender Equity in New York, Hosea Helps in Atlanta, and other community organizations. These groups are using the Community Credits program to empower volunteerism, reflection, and discussion around the life and legacy of Dr. King.

“The Greater Englewood Chamber is very excited to be partnering with DoorDash and have the opportunity to support local small businesses in the Englewood community. This strategic partnership helps to keep businesses open and operating, employees working and supports the hyper local economy. The impact this partnership with DoorDash strives to achieve is our ability to be helpful to the whole community, with our warm meal giveaway and to remember, ‘… that the first function of community, is support.’ – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” – Felicia Slaton-Young, Executive Director | Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce

“As an extension of our work at the intersection of culture, community and commerce, we are honored to provide DoorDash gift cards to frontline workers and the community most in need, remembering the life and legacy of service of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” – Shelley Worrell, CEO & Founder of CaribBEING

We are honored to join forces with organizations working to serve their communities today and every day. By empowering non-profit partners with access to food, essentials, and more, they can devote time to doing more of what really matters: supporting their communities.
