At Dr Pepper Snapple Group, ACTION is at the heart of everything we do. The mission of ACTION Nation, our corporate philanthropy program, is to foster physically active, engaged and sustainable communities where our employees, customers and consumers live and work.
DPS supports three philanthropic focus areas – fit and active lifestyles, environmental sustainability and hometown giving.
DPS employees make a difference directly through their commitment to volunteerism. Whether during the workday or on their own time, our employees are taking ACTION in the communities in which they live and work.
In 2017, DPS’s good work was recognized when we were named to the Civic 50 for the fifth time. 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.
Grants for Good Every day, DPS employees give back to the communities where they live and work, and DPS wants to celebrate and reward those efforts. DPS’s Grants for Good program allows employees who log 25 hours during a calendar year to be eligible for a $250 grant to a 501(c)(3) organization of their choice within DPS’s giving guidelines. Employees can log their hours and get started today.
Charitable Donation Requests We support a myriad of causes and nonprofit organizations that are aligned with ACTION Nation and benefit the communities where our offices are located. If you have a charitable request, please submit it at least 30 days prior to your event and allow at least two weeks for a response. For our corporate philanthropy decisions, DPS does not consider funding for the following:
Organizations that do not have an Internal Revenue section 501(c)(3) status.
Organizations that do not comply with Dr Pepper Snapple’s equal opportunity policy in both employment practices and provision of services.
Requests outside of Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico or the United States.
Individuals or personal fundraising initiatives (e.g., GoFundMe).
Annual or capital campaigns and endowment funds.
Conferences or seminars.
Donations for religious or political purposes.
United Way agencies, except for special initiatives not already funded through local campaigns.
Courtesy advertising (including yearbooks and school programs).
If your request meets the above giving guidelines, please submit a formal request through Sponsorwise, our online sponsorship and donation system.
Sponsorship Requests You can also submit noncharitable, brand-related sponsorship requests, such as those related to sports marketing, events and entertainment, music, individual/endorsements and venue pouring rights via Sponsorwise. Brand-related requests, which take longer to properly activate, will require more lead time. Please submit your request at least six months prior to your event and allow at least four weeks for a response.
Note: We no longer accept requests by phone, fax, email or mail. All requests must be submitted through this online system for consideration.
