Coca-Cola Foundation Pledges $500K in Business Grants For Atlanta Women

Coca-Cola has pledged $500,000 to the Atlanta Women's Foundation (AWF) to support economic empowerment initiatives impacting Atlanta's women and girls. The grant will also fund support programs to empower girls between the ages of 8 and 18 to make positive choices about education, careers and lifestyle.

The Atlanta Women's Foundation has granted more than $10 million to 250 nonprofit organizations since it was founded in 1986. It awards grants to nonprofit organizations serving women and girls, develops leadership programs for women, educates the public on challenges facing women and girls and advocates on their behalf.

Empowering women to thrive in business is a global commitment for The Coca-Cola Company. In 2010, the company announced its 5 BY 20 program, an initiative to empower 5 million women entrepreneurs throughout its global system by 2020.

In September 2011, the company outlined a key step in achieving this commitment through a new partnership with United Nations Women to provide new business training, mentoring and access to financial resources to women-owned businesses across the Coca-Cola value chain.
