Celebrating our 2022 Recipients

Every year, it is our privilege to award $5 million to help nonprofits across the U.S. and Canada that are working to strengthen their local communities. Through our annual Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Awards™ program, nonprofit organizations that are either nominated by our Operators or have applied through the Chick-fil-A® website can win grants of up to $350,000 to further their impact. Every year, Chick-fil-A One® Members vote through the Chick-fil-A App to help us determine our regional winners.
