The Thank You Fund in 2017

Set up in 2011 to mark Coke's 125th anniversary, the Thank You Fund has already awarded €755,000 to 56 non-profit organisations in the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland.

Deadline for applications: 14 July @ midnight

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. 

Grants of €5,000, €10,000 and €30,000 will be given to groups fitting this bill that emerge successful from an initial shortlist selection process and subsequent pitch to a panel of expert judges.

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
  • Empowering young people aged 12 to 25 to become the leaders of the future.
