The company’s philanthropic Chick-fil-A Foundation created the True Inspiration Awards program to carry on Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy’s legacy of generosity and community service. Since 2015, 171 organizations in 33 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada, have been awarded grants totaling $12 million.
