Getting a Coke machine for your business does far more than provide a benefit for your staff and customers. Coke is notorious for being charitable and giving back to the community, most notably through the Coca-Cola Foundation. With each purchase of a beverage, people around the world are offered a helping hand.
Since the FoundationÛªs inception in 1984, Coke has given millions of dollars in support of many causes. The company gave $117 million in 2015 alone to charity.
That number is sure to give anyone Û÷all the feelsÛª. But what kinds of charities does the worldÛªs most popular brand support? Below are the different ways in which something as simple as a Coke machine in your office can help many people.
The Coca-Cola Foundation's Areas of Priority

From The Adelante Movement that helps bring financial literacy to Latinas through a webinar series, to helping migrant women in China get training and learn business skills, Coke is proud to support women around the globe.
