The Coca-Cola Australia Foundation (CCAF) is a joint philanthropic initiative between Coca-Cola Amatil and Coca-Cola South Pacific, distributing $1.1 million annually.
Our mission is to help create possibilities for a brighter, more sustainable future for Australians today and for generations to come. We support programs that align with this mission through our Flagship and Employee Connected grants programs.
Since it was founded in 2002, the CCAF has provided more than $16 million to hundreds of organisations, positively impacting the lives of many Australians.
The Employee Connected grants support projects in communities where our employees live, work or have personal connections. These one-off grants of up to $25,000 provide an opportunity for both Coca-Cola Amatil and Coca-Cola South Pacific employees to connect with charities that they care about.
The Flagship grants support charities with strategic programs that address a challenge aligned with our mission.
Up to $200,000 is provided each year, for up to three consecutive years.
Until 2020 our Flagship Grant recipients were aligned to the previous CCAF mission to inspire moments of happiness and possibilities for young Australians.
At CCAF, our partnerships go beyond financial donations. We’re passionate about setting up our charity partners for long term success by providing volunteering support for events and in areas where we can add value.
We want our support to enable long term change which in turn, benefits the many Australians who rely on charities for support.
In 2019, the CCAF Board strategically realigned its mission to more closely reflect the sustainability objectives of its founding partners, Coca-Cola South Pacific and Coca-Cola Amatil, as well as complementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
We’re optimistic about the new partnerships that will be formed in the years ahead under our strategic mission, and the support that will extend to many Australians.
