Chick-fil-A has announced that it’s offering $5 million in grants for non-profit organizations.
In a press release announcement, it was revealed that the popular True Inspiration Awards™ grant program has made its applications available, which you can download here.
The company said that grants totaling $5 million will be spread across 34 not-for-profit organizations and that Black-led non-profits are encouraged to apply.
“There are incredible nonprofit organizations across the U.S. and Canada working to address key issues that disproportionately affect communities of color in the areas of education, homelessness, and hunger,” said Rodney Bullard, vice president of corporate social responsibility for Chick-fil-A, Inc., in the press release announcement. “Through our annual True Inspiration Awards, we are honored to help these organizations, based in the communities we serve, extend their impact, helping to pave the way for greater opportunity and equity.”
After eligible non-profits submit their applications, Chick-fil-A One® members will have the opportunity to vote for nominated organizations located in their geographic region through the Chick-fil-A App in September 2021. Eligible organizations can also be nominated at participating stores. Last year, nearly one million people voted through the app to select the 2021 True Inspiration Awards recipients.
We’re inspired by the stories of our True Inspiration Awards winners who are serving our communities by working to address education, hunger & homelessness.
