Corporate Social Responsibility
Giving back to the community by supporting causes important to our members is an important priority for National DCP. We focus on promoting good will and fostering relationships with franchisees, suppliers and the Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation (DDBRCF) through community outreach. Our philanthropy is focused on several key events nationwide:
Dunkin’ Donuts George Mandell Memorial Golf Tournament
NDCP hosts the annual Dunkin’ Donuts George Mandell Memorial Golf Tournament, which raises money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). Bringing Dunkin’ Donuts Northeast Franchisees together with NDCP Suppliers, the event has generated cumulative donations that surpass $12 million over 18 years. It is the largest private golf tournament benefitting the DFCI’s Jimmy Fund, a major charitable initiative in the region. (use the Source cover photo here from the 2015 golf tournament)
