Five-Year, $200M Main Street Strong Pledge to support merchants, Dashers and local communities
DoorDash was founded with a mission to grow and empower local economies. Never have local economies and the communities that sustain them been more challenged than in 2020. With many of those challenges likely to extend into next year, we recognize that our commitment to supporting the people and local businesses that power DoorDash has never been more important. Our platform only works if it works for all stakeholders, and our company will only be successful if success is shared.
