What is the Thank You Fund?

Now in its seventh year, the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund was set up in 2011 to mark the 125th anniversary of the company.

Over the years, the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund has supported many projects. These have included community, social and education programmes aimed at youth, promoting healthy and active lifestyles, as well as environmental leadership. To date we have given €755,000 to 56 non-profit organisations across the island of Ireland.

Which projects are eligible for funding?

The Thank You Fund is currently looking for projects from non-profit organisations with new ideas. The big theme this year is – ‘Working with communities in Ireland and Northern Ireland to inspire and support young people.’

Within this theme, the Fund is seeking applications which fall under one or more of the following three categories:

  • Bridging the divide between education and the workplace
  • Fostering diversity and inclusion among young people
