Coca-Cola Amatil New Zealand (CCANZ) was one of two Scholarship Partners at First Foundation’s inception in 1998, offering two of the three inaugural First Foundation Scholarships.

CCANZ have continued their support since coming back on board in 2010. CCANZ offered their eighth Scholarship in 2013 and have been recognised as a Gold Partner of First Foundation. “CCANZ is passionate about creating memories, happiness and possibilities. Our on-going relationship with First Foundation provides us with opportunities to do this for our staff, our students, the Foundation and the communities within which we operate. We are committed to providing our staff access to the First Foundation Mentoring programme as well as providing our students with experiences they may not normally have access to” notes Lee Bosson , Organisational Consultant-Sales and Customer Services.
