Launched seven years ago the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund has so far donated €855K to 70 non-profit organisations across Ireland. Official partners include the Irish Youth Foundation and YouthAction Northern Ireland.

The Coca-Cola Thank You Fund will award a total of €100,000 to youth-oriented non-profit organisations in 2018. Grants will be awarded ranging from anywhere from €5,000 to €30,000. This year applicants will also be invited to submit a 60-second video to support their application.

The €100,000 Thank You Fund seeks to fund projects that inspire and support young people in Ireland and Northern Ireland.  Applications are encouraged across a range of categories – the Fund aims to:

  • bridge the divide between education and the workplace
  • encourage diversity and inclusion
  • empower young people to become leaders of the future
  • welcome innovative approaches to sustainability.
