Coca Cola donates 1.25 million to National Museum of African History and Culture

Coca-Cola, the world’s largest beverage company, donated $2 million to the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex.

The Coca-Cola Foundation hopes that old slogan “Things Go Better with Coke” works its magic on three Smithsonian projects.

Divided up like those omnipresent soda cartons, the money includes $1.25 million for the National Museum of African American History and Culture. A special African curator-in-residence program at the National Museum of African Art receives $500,000. And the National Zoo’s “At Water’s Edge” exhibit $250,000.
