Grubhub’s Driver Grant Program Sets Out to Support Community Involvement and Goals

01/10/2022
Grubhub is proud to announce the return of its Driver Grant Program for the second year, with applications opening today. Grubhub launched this program last year to support drivers who are creating meaningful change in their communities through education, civic engagement or philanthropic work.

Twenty drivers will each receive a $10,000 grant that can be used to support their personal causes, inspire change and further their impact within communities. Past recipients used their grants to follow their passions, such as upgrading a vehicle to help stray animals, donating to a local organization that supports victims of sexual assault, providing mentorship opportunities and resources for youth, supporting homeless populations, and so much more.

“We are always looking for ways to support our drivers, show that we value their work and invest in their futures,” said Carolyn Cartledge-Chatman, senior manager of logistics at Grubhub. “It was clear during the first grant program last year that our drivers are passionate about making a difference. We are proud to again play a role in making their ideas a reality, especially with the heavy toll this last year has had on communities.” 

To be considered for a grant, applicants are asked to create a short video that outlines how they’ve made a positive impact in their community, how driving with Grubhub fits into their larger mission, and how they’d use the grant to pursue their goals. The application period opens today, January 10, and closes January 21. Recipients will be announced in March. More information on eligibility and how to apply can be found here
