Coca Cola Foundation

Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation has received a grant from the Coca Cola Foundation to support its mission to strengthen higher education by strengthening the connection of students and faculty with their communities through academic service learning (ASL) partnerships. Students engage in community development projects, making our communities stronger, making a difference to the lives of others and their own.

This grant helps in making the connection between the international legacy of the Carters and the heritage of their Southern roots.
