How to Get Donations From Coca-Cola

by Eve Lopez

The Coca-Cola Company and The Coca-Cola Foundation awarded $82 million in 2008 to various nonprofits. Getting donations in the form of grants from Coca-Cola is a long process, and the company generally only awards grants to nonprofits that have Section 501(c) (3) status.

How to Get Donations From Coca-Cola

Make sure your nonprofit's programs fall under one of the areas Coca-Cola awards grants to: programs that promote clean drinking water, healthy and active lifestyles, community recycling, and education.

Write a detailed grant proposal, with all information about your program, how much money you want donated, how many people will be working with the program, and what area the program serves.

Download and fill out the application, available on the Coca-Cola website.

Mail the grant proposal and completed grant application, along with any other related documents, to the following address: The Coca-Cola Company, Grants Administration, 1 Coca-Cola Plaza, Atlanta, Georgia, 30313.
