We are part of the community fabric in thousands of cities, towns and villages around the world. From our earliest days, we have understood that being a responsible member of any community means giving -- of our money, our time and our unique expertise. Here is how we are doing our part to help communities thrive.
Since 1984, we have given to communities through The Coca-Cola Foundation, our nonprofit, 501(c)(3) philanthropic organization. Through The Coca-Cola Company, the Foundation and our 19 local and regional foundations worldwide, we partner with governments, NGOs and other organizations to support community improvement in four main areas: water stewardship, healthy and active lifestyles, community recycling and education. We also fund disaster relief in communities facing crisis.
Our goal is to give back at least 1 percent of our operating income annually to improve the living standards of people around the world. In 2011, The Coca-Cola Foundation invested more than $76 million in 257 community organizations around the world to support sustainable community initiatives, including water stewardship, community recycling, active healthy living and education.
