Community Dollars

There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing the difference we can make in the community we live in. The Community Dollars Program was established as a way for Drakes to regularly give back to the local groups which operate in our community.

For every $2 spent at a participating Drakes store in SA & $1 in QLD, 1c will be accredited to the organisations fund.  We have donated over $1.6 million dollars, since January 2016, to participating not-for-profit organisations in our local communities.

As part of our new myDrakes app, customers now have the ability to support their favourite community dollars members without having to bring a key tag along each time they shop! When customers download and register for the myDrakes app, they are prompted to select a community dollars partner. Each time the customer shops and scans their phone, a portion of their shop is automatically attributed to their chosen community group without the need to scan an additional key tag.

2023 First Half

For the first half of 2023 Drakes have donated through the Community Dollars Program over $130,000 to 850 local sporting, schools and community groups throughout SA and QLD who are part of the program.

Getting your local not-for profit church, footy club, kindergarten or chosen charity involved is easy. Simply complete the application form and your group will be experiencing the benefits of this prestigious program.
