Our Coca-Cola Foundations, established and funded in Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea by CCA in partnership with TCCC, are the centrepieces of our corporate philanthropy and each year fund a range of diverse community projects.
The Coca-Cola Australia Foundation
CCAF, an independent charitable trust funded by the Coca-Cola System in Australia, supports organisations working to improve the lives of marginalised young Australians. Each year through its grant program, the Foundation distributes $1.1 million to programs assisting disadvantaged young people.
Through the National Grant program, the Foundation partners with a small number of organisations to fund large scale national based programs. These grants are awarded for a period of one to five years.
The Foundation's National Grant program is currently full and we are not accepting new applications for National Grants. When we reopen this program to new applications we will update the information on this website.
Community Grants are one-off grants up to $10,000.
What are the criteria for applying for a Community Grant?
• Your organisation must have Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.
• The program you are seeking funding for must be based in Australia.
• The program you are seeking funding for must target disadvantage young people aged between 12 and 25 years. The Foundation does not fund programs outside this age range.

The Coca-Cola Foundation Indonesia (CCFI)
The CCFI was established in August 2000 by Coca-Cola Bottling Indonesia (CCBI) and TCCC to “elevate the level of education and the quality of human resources in Indonesia”.
The Foundation funds a large range of programs, including the successful Learning Centres in 31 public libraries in 14 provinces throughout Indonesia, which benefit a potential five million people.
Other Foundation programs include the Cinta Air (“Love Water”) water conservation project which assists communities with fresh drinking water at a local level, the Go Green School program for environment education, Goodwill Scholarships for tertiary education, creative writing workshops and health education programs. Some established projects include the Setu Water project, where the Foundation has built water tanks to assist local farmers with irrigation and their long-term ability to remain on the land producing crops.
The Foundation also funds the Micro-Enterprise Development Program which helps lift people out of poverty by providing micro-loans, some as little as $AUS100, to enable people to establish sustainable businesses.
