Coca-Cola Thank You Fund 2019 Applications Now Open

Posted on 10 May 2019

The Coca-Cola Thank You Fund, now in its ninth year, is our way of supporting and giving back to some of Ireland and Northern Ireland’s most amazing youth-centric causes.

Any Irish non-profit organisation aimed towards promoting healthy, active lifestyles and environmental leadership in young people can enter, with monetary prizes from a €100,000 total fund up for grabs.

So how does it work? And how can you get involved? Here’s everything you need to know…

Life-changing money for life-changing causes

This year, the Thank You Fund’s lifetime contributions will exceed €1,000,000, with another €100,000 being dished out to worthy causes that fit our 2019 theme of ‘Working with communities in Ireland and Northern Ireland to inspire and support young people.’

Any organisation – big or small – aimed at transforming the lives of people aged 16-25 can enter, with a judging panel and people’s vote helping to determine who’ll be the lucky recipient of individual prize funds worth €5,000, €10,000 or €20,000.

Think that sounds like your organisation? We’re looking for inspiring work in the following areas:

  • Educational and training programmes for young people
  • Programmes that support diversity and inclusivity in young people
  • Programmes that take an innovative approach to demonstrating sustainability to young people

If a non-profit cause you work with fits that bill, we want to hear from you! Applications are now open, and are super simple to compete via the form linked below:

Apply for the Thank You Fund

Applications are open until 12 July 2019, after which point our expert panel of judges will choose a shortlist of 20 organisations who’ll make it through to the next stage.

From there, our shortlist will also have the chance to win the People’s Choice Award – an extra €5,000 for the cause the public loves the sound of the most. You can learn all about the huge difference that kind of money can make here.

The Thank You Fund is an incredible opportunity for us at Coca-Cola to help big, small and flourishing non-profits programmes throughout Ireland expand – and to help them impact even more lives. We can’t wait to read every single entry that comes in.

So what are you waiting for? There’s nothing to lose, and a whole lot to gain...
