Chick-fil-A is giving $5M in grants to black-led nonprofits or nonprofits impacting communities of color.
The window for applications is open for the 2022 True Inspiration Awards. Applications will be accepted through May 31, 2021.
The “True Inspiration Awards” originated in 2015. The awards were created to honor Chick-fil-A’s founder, S. Truett Cathy, and his legacy of generosity and community service.
This will be the second year in a row that Chick-fil-A will focus the “True Inspiration Awards” on black-led nonprofits and nonprofits that impact communities of color. Five million dollars in grants will be awarded to more than 30 nonprofits across the U.S. and Canada. Grants will range from $50,000 to $350,000.
If you are part of a non profit organization that have a majority Black board of directors, executive leadership and staff or serve communities of color working in areas of education, hunger or homelessness, consider applying today. You must be an official 501(c)(3) located in the U.S. or Canada. Chick-fil-A is looking for you. You can apply via the Chick-fil-A website or can be nominated by a local Chick-fil-A restaurant operator.
The awards include the S. Truett Cathy honoree. This is for an organization that embodies the generous and innovative nature of Mr. Cathy. An organization that looks for new ways to solve problems and serve their communities.
There will be nine category winners, three in each category: Education, Hunger, and Homelessness.
Regional winners will also be selected. This category must be nominated by a Chick-fil-A Operator. This will be based on the organizations work in education, hunger OR homelessness. Chick-fil-A One customers will vote for finalists in the Chick-fil-A App.
