Chick-fil-A Gives a Total of $5M to 46 NGO
Chick-fil-A – The 2023 Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Awards grant recipients have been revealed by the fast food chain. Three of the 46 national NGOs that were chosen are located in the Dallas region.
According to the corporation, funds totaling $5 million will be given to these organizations to support their civic initiatives. An organisation must work to address important problems that line up with Chick-fil-CSR A’s priorities—caring for people, caring for others via food, caring for our communities, and caring for the planet—in order to be chosen for a grant.
The winners of local grants include:
Protecting, assisting, and empowering children and young people who are enduring abuse, neglect, or homelessness is the mission of City House in Plano.
Cornerstone Crossroads Academy in Dallas is a school community centred on students, faculty, staff, volunteers, donors, churches, and neighbourhood organizations.
Dallas’ Mercy Street seeks to develop relationships with inner-city adolescents that are mutually transformative through Christian mentoring.
Brent Fielder, senior director of corporate social responsibility at Chick-fil-A, said in a statement: “Through our True Inspiration Awards grant programme, Chick-fil-A helps empower local NGOs that are leading good change and having real impact throughout the communities they serve. “To support more nonprofit organizations that take good care of the earth we share, we introduced a new grant category this year called Caring for our Planet. We take great joy in supporting all of our recipient organizations across the United States as they flourish and leave a lasting legacy.
