S. Truett Cathy Honoree
One organization will be selected as the S. Truett Cathy Honoree. The S. Truett Cathy Honoree embodies the generous, innovative spirit of Chick-fil-A’s late founder — pioneering new ways to solve problems and serve others.
In 2023, we will continue to support nonprofits with a total commitment of $5 million in grants ranging from $30,000-$350,000.
Sixteen organizations will be awarded for their work in these areas..
Caring for People (four winners): Programs or projects supporting educational initiatives, including fostering character and leadership development, academic excellence and community involvement in underserved youth.
Caring through Food (four winners): Programs or projects focused on addressing hunger and food insecurity facing children and their families.
Community (four winners): Programs or projects focused on providing housing and other direct services to support young people and their families.
Caring for our Planet (four winners): Programs or projects that show care for our environment and our planet, or that demonstrate environmental stewardship through initiatives directly related to our other True Inspiration Awards categories of food, community and people (i.e., community beautification, education opportunities, community gardens, outdoor classrooms, etc.)
Twenty-nine organizations will be selected as 2023 Regional Winners for their work in one of the four categories (education, hunger, community or environmental stewardship). These organizations must be nominated by a Chick-fil-A Operator, and Chick-fil-A One® Customers will have the opportunity to vote on finalists in the Chick-fil-A App in the fall.
Our True Inspiration Awards grant recipients are a positive force for change in their communities. "With kindness, passion and ingenuity, these organizations are solving problems and removing roadblocks so children and youth across the country have the opportunity, the support and the confidence to become all they can be. Chick-fil-A is honored to support the mission of these nonprofits and foster continued growth in the communities they serve.
