BMe Community is one of many organizations that Domino’s has supported with a monetary donation. The organization is committed to building and supporting Black people’s freedom to Live, Own, Vote and Excel through its Black LOVE Fund.
In June of 2020, Domino’s CEO Ritch Allison made a statement unequivocally denouncing all acts of racism, hatred and the unjust treatment of Black people. In the statement, he shared the news of a commitment by Domino’s to contribute $3 million over the next three years to organizations that make a difference for Black people in the communities we serve and internal programs that will change us for the better. In the six months that followed, Domino’s had productive and inspiring conversations with different nonprofit organizations doing incredible work. Domino’s donated a total of $330,000 to the organizations mentioned below. We are proud to support these groups and their missions, and we are honored to share the good work they’re doing every day.
