I am delighted to once again support the Coca Cola ‘Thank you fund’. Now in its eighth 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 projects including community, social and education programmes aimed at youth, healthy and active lifestyles, and environmental leadership. To date €855,000 has been given to 70 non-profit organisations across the island of Ireland.
In 2018, the Fund will focus on one overall theme – ‘Working with communities in Ireland and Northern Ireland to inspire and support young people.’
This year Coca Cola are again looking for non-profit and community groups to apply for funding. €100,000 is up for grabs through the Thank You Fund.
Does your project inspire and support young people? Entries are welcomed which fall under the following categories:
- Bridging the divide between education and the workplace
- Fostering diversity and inclusion among young people
- Empowering young people aged 16 to 25 to become the leaders of the future
- Youths taking an innovative approach to sustainability in local communities
You can apply online at www.coca-cola.ie/thankyou. The Closing date is 13thJuly, 2018.
