What if I don’t have the name or contact information for the Dunkin’ contact who referred me?
Please note that at this time we do not accept unsolicited grant requests. All grantees are nominated by members of the Dunkin’ community. If you do not have a referral, please email

I made a mistake on my eligibility quiz and it says we are not eligible. Can you reset the eligibility quiz?
If you mistakenly failed the eligibility quiz but believe you are eligible, you can retake it at any time by going back to the original application link again

Why was our application declined in a previous grant cycle?
Please note that this is a competitive grant process. We receive a lot of great applications and unfortunately, due to limited funding, we cannot fund them all. In some cases, an application does not align with our guidelines. We encourage you to carefully read our grant guidelines before investing time in completing an application.
