Our Foundations

Coca-Cola Amatil

The Coca-Cola Australia Foundation (CCAF)

CCAF is at the heart of our community strategy in Australia. This philanthropic fund is a joint initiative between Coca-Cola Amatil and Coca-Cola South Pacific, created to support the community through the distribution of $1.1 Million in grants, every year.

Our mission is to inspire moments of happiness and possibilities for young Australians.

Our aspiration is to create meaningful philanthropic partnerships that will help build stronger, happier communities, particularly for young Australians aged 13 to 19. We will do this by supporting programs that build capability through growing optimism, increasing levels of empowerment, create possibilities and/or improve the wellbeing of the community in which the program operates.

Our criteria for funding is to support programs that address a demonstrable societal need, so together we can make a difference where it counts. To be eligible charities must have Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, be aligned to our mission and demonstrate how they will build capability by addressing our focus areas:

  • Optimism
  • Empowerment
  • Creating possibilities for a positive life
  • Wellbeing - Emotional, Physical and societal
