Community Partnerships

On a rotating monthly basis, Dine Niagara partners with charities and other community groups throughout the Niagara Region in order to help raise attention and funds to support their important work. These partnerships can include several different types of support including:

  • Providing a link and banner on our home page and locations list to allow our visitors to make donations directly to these organizations or learn more about their programs and services.
  • Sharing content and information about our partner and their programs through our social media and marketing channels.
  • Direct financial donations from Dine Niagara, our employees, and/or our local restaurant partners.
  • Contest prize donations to support other charitable or community activities that these organizations may engage in.
  • Collecting donations through our checkout process to be routed to the community partner.

The core mission of Dine Niagara is to create a community of support around our local restaurants in an economical model that is both self-sustainable and beneficial to the restaurants first, the community second, and Dine Niagara last.  Everything we do is oriented around supporting our restaurant partners, and our fees for services are designed only to cover the costs of providing those services.

Aligning with local charities and community groups that are helping to build a stronger Niagara Region is very well aligned to that mission. If you ever have a question about our approach or partnership with any of our community and charity partners feel free to contact us directly.

Important Note About Checkout Donations

As we are not a registered charity in Canada, there is no way for Dine Niagara or our participating restaurant partners to issue charitable donation receipts for any donations collected through the Dine Niagara platform. Dine Niagara facilitates the donation and the restaurants themselves receive the funds from the donations on your order. At the end of each of the partnership months, restaurants who have collected donations will route the aggregate donation to the community partner.

If you would like to receive a charitable receipt for your donation, please use the link we provide on our home page or restaurant listing page and make your donation directly to our community partner.
