Forty-four community organizations around the world will receive a total of $6 million in grant awards from The Coca-Cola Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Coca-Cola Company. The grants, approved during the second quarter, support community initiatives aimed at improving education, fitness and nutrition programs, community recycling and access to clean water.

“We continue to support local initiatives around the world that are important to our consumers in their own communities,” said Ingrid Saunders Jones, Senior Vice President, Global Community Connections for The Coca-Cola Company, and Chairperson of The Coca-Cola Foundation. “We believe our investment in these 44 community organizations will help people worldwide build stronger, healthier and sustainable communities.”
