Summary
The Dunkin' Brands Community was created in partnership with the franchise owners of Dunkin' Donuts and
Baskin-Robbins to support emergency response organizations before a crisis occurs. The foundation's goal is to help
ensure that those depended on during a disaster have the training, equipment and resources they need to rise to any
occasion. The Dunkin' Brands Community Foundation helps to strengthen capacity and leadership for organizations
that serve communities in times of crisis, from the people on the frontlines in the heat of a disaster to the silent heroes
who rebuild communities after the limelight fades. Through its charitable grants and partnerships, the foundation
helps emergency response organizations: (1) provide safety training to responders; (2) develop rapid-response
preparedness plans; (3) update and improve emergency-response infrastructure; (4) purchase and maintain emergency
response equipment; (5) raise public awareness of resource needs; and (6) encourage the public to get involved and
show their support. The foundation supports emergency response organizations by providing financial assistance,
building capacity, developing partnerships, encouraging volunteerism, honoring local heroes and much more.
