As our philanthropy grows, we continuously update our charitable tools and processes to serve our communities. This month, we did just that with the launch of our new CyberGrants online grant application platform.
This new platform provides one place for nonprofits, schools, and government entities near any of our locations to apply for a grant for a product or financial donation. In addition to streamlining the application process, the platform will help us make future decisions to further our philanthropy.
“Up until now, we’ve tracked a lot of our charitable work manually on spreadsheets,” explains Suzy Parn, the head of Dot’s corporate charitable committee. “Now, grants will be captured in one system, allowing us to analyze our charitable decisions based on companywide data.”
To apply for a grant, review our requirements and submit your application here.
If the start of this year is any indication, the new platform will see a lot of activity in 2023. Here is some of our latest charitable work:
Dot Foods Mt. Sterling presented a $15,000 check to the Alzheimer’s Association as part of our ongoing support of the organization.
We could easily focus this month’s update on all the amazing donations Dot Foods Arizona made across various schools and organizations. Their largest donations include a $5,000 sponsorship of the Laughlin Bullhead Airshow and a nearly $3,000 sponsorship for TRACES’ (Tri-State Athletics Community & Education Stars) Annual Charity Golf Tournament.
Our hearts go out to everyone in California impacted by the flooding earlier this year. Dot Foods California donated to the United Way of Merced County to support the 4,000 displaced residents of Merced and surrounding cities.
Dot Foods Chicago sponsored South Chicago Dance Theatre’s Black History Month Performance Series. Dancers performed at Chicago Public Schools and provided education on Black culture and history.
Dot Foods Indiana delivered several pallets to a local pantry through the United Way of Highway 55.
Dot Foods Georgia provided snack bags to the Toombs County and Vidalia High School basketball teams to give them fuel for their big playoff games.
