Now in its twelfth year, the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund is continuing to take steps to create a nation of change champions, with grants totalling €100,000 available to charities, community groups and non-profit organisations committed to helping young people shape, create and maintain sustainable communities for the benefit of all. 

Under this year’s special theme of Investing in Sustainable Communities, the Fund is seeking applications which fall under one or more of the following three categories:


Educational, training, resilience and entrepreneurship programmes for young people

Diversity and Inclusion

Programmes that support Diversity & Inclusivity and social equity among young people.

Care for the Environment

Programmes that encourage and support young people to care for and protect the environment.

Leaders of the shortlisted projects will be invited to attend a special skills and networking workshop delivered by supporting partners Irish Youth Foundation (IYF) and YouthAction Northern Ireland, empowering them with top tips on how to pitch their project and apply for funding, before presenting their ideas to a panel of judges in September.

Communities will also have the opportunity to vote for their favourite project from the shortlisted organisations as the ‘People’s Choice Award’ returns, with successful 2022 Coca-Cola Thank You Fund recipients to be announced in the autumn.  

Over the years, the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund has supported projects including community, social and education programmes aimed at youth, healthy and active lifestyles and environmental leadership.

To date €1,255,000 has been given to 121 non-profit organisations across the island of Ireland.
