Bringing joy to sick and hungry kids.
The Joy in Childhood Foundation provides the simple joys of childhood to sick and hungry kids. Since 2006, the Joy in Childhood Foundation (formerly The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation) has been deeply embedded in communities across the country and has donated over $11 million to hundreds of national and local charities.
In 2016, the Foundation rebranded as the Joy in Childhood Foundation, a name that reflects our renewed focus on helping kids—particularly those facing hunger and sickness—find joy in their daily lives.
Through the generosity of our franchisees, employees, vendors and guests, the Joy in Childhood Foundation raises funds to support partnerships with children’s hospitals, food banks, and nonprofit organizations directly committed to serving sick and hungry kids.
There are countless ways in which you can support the Foundation’s mission to provide the simple joys of childhood to sick and hungry kids. Whether you’d like to donate or spread the word on social media, your participation will positively impact children in your local community. We also encourage you to reach out to your local children’s hospital, food bank or nonprofit organizations directly committed to serving sick and hungry kids to learn more about how you can volunteer to provide joy to sick and hungry kids.
