Domino’s has awarded seven charities across Australia with $20,000 through its first-ever Store Grant Program. The program is funded by Domino’s registered charity, Give for Good. 

Domino’s for Good Day in February this year raised more than $137,000 to help support local communities. 

Josh Kilimnik, Domino’s Australia and New Zealand CEO, said “Give for Good is about supporting causes that benefit communities, help them recover from natural disasters and that invest in our young people. 

“From supporting programs for disengaged young people, funding equipment for emergency services and health services for remote Australians – we are proud to be able to give back.”

Domino’s awards charities connected with local stores

The charities that Domino’s is supporting all have a relationship with their local Domino’s store, which is an essential part of the selection criteria. 

Kilimnik said “Many of these relationships were born out of hardship, whether it’s through supplying pizza during a significant flooding event or supplying vouchers to help those fleeing an unsafe relationship.

“Our local store owners are proud to be part of their local communities, and we look forward to seeing the impact that these grants have.”

The full list of recipients of the $20,000 grants are:

  • Upper Hunter Homeless Support (Domino’s Muswellbrook and Scone)
  • Worldview Foundation (Domino’s Kippax)
  • Goondir Health Services (Domino’s Dalby)
  • Rotary Club of Ballina-on-Byron (Domino’s Alstonville)
  • Gympie SES (Domino’s Gympie)
  • Leaderlife Dubbo (Domino’s Dubbo)
  • PCYC Bathurst (Domino’s Bathurst)

Give for Good is a registered charity of Domino’s. It was founded to fund causes that align with the values of youth, community and disaster relief.
