DOMINO'S PARTNERS FOUNDATION
At Domino’s, we are focused on being a pillar of support for our team members during times of need. The Partners Foundation is a benevolent trust established in Australia in 1997 to assist Domino’s team members in times of personal hardship or misfortune.
Partners Foundation provides immediate financial assistance to Domino’s franchisees and team members to assist with things such as injury or illness; medical emergencies; funeral costs for family members; fire or natural disaster; financial hardship and more.
It is based on the principle of team members helping team members in times of need, with the majority of funding coming from a company-wide payroll-deduction program. When someone joins Domino’s, they are encouraged to give as little as 50 cents through their pay each week to Partners Foundation.
Any current Domino’s team member, both in one of our 700 plus stores across Australia and New Zealand or in our head office, can submit a claim for assistance from Partners Foundation. This claim is then presented to the Partners Foundation Trustees for review. On average, more than 35 claims are approved each year.
Thanks to the generosity of team members who donate through their pay to Partners Foundation, the Foundation is also able to fund Domino’s employee assistance program, ensuring team members who are going through a difficult time or are just in need of someone to talk to, can access free, confidential counselling services.
The support the Partners Foundation offers to team members in need wouldn’t be possible without the support of several corporate team members and franchisees who volunteer their time and skills to be Partners Foundation Trustees. These Trustees live by the Domino’s value of doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, and Domino’s is grateful for their dedication to helping fellow team members.
