The True Inspiration Awards™ program was created in 2015 to honor the legacy of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy. Since then, more than $7.1 million has been granted to nonprofits doing amazing things in their communities. This year, Chick-fil-A committed to award $5 million in True Inspiration Awards grants to qualifying nonprofits that are either Black-led or serving primarily Black communities or other communities of color. Applications for the 2021 True Inspiration Awards program closed on September 25, 2020.
