Corporate Philanthropy

2015  Goals:

  • Contribute a total of 100,000 volunteer hours and attain an annual giving level of $10 million in charitable cash donations, with the majority of support focused on fit and active lifestyles, environmental sustainability, emergency relief and hometown giving.

The communities where we operate have supported our success over the years and we believe the best way to show our appreciation is by doing good things in return.

After five years of taking ACTION in our communities, DPS has seen some amazing results. The end of 2014 marked the achievement of a major philanthropy milestone for DPS – more than 106,000 volunteer hours and nearly $40 million donated over the course of five years to philanthropic projects and nonprofits.

In 2014, our good work was recognized when DPS was named to the Civic 50 for the third consecutive year. This places DPS among the top 50 S&P 500 companies that best use their time, talent and resources to improve the quality of life where they do business.

DPS’s ACTION Nation platform plays an instrumental part in how we foster physically active, engaged and sustainable communities where our employees, customers and consumers live and work. We focus the majority of our philanthropic activities and volunteerism in four key areas:
