Chick-fil-A has announced the grant recipients of the 2023 Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Awards program. Out of 46 nonprofits selected nationwide, three are in the Dallas area.
All together, these organizations will receive a total of $5 million in grants to further their community efforts, the company said. To be selected for a grant, an organization must work to address key issues that align with Chick-fil-A’s corporate social responsibility priorities: Caring for People, Caring for Others through Food, Caring for our Communities, and Caring for our Planet.
The local grant recipients include:
:: City House in Plano, whose mission is to protect, serve and empower children and young adults experiencing abuse, neglect or homelessness
:: Cornerstone Crossroads Academy in Dallas, a school community built around students, staff and leadership, volunteers, donors, churches, and community partners
:: Mercy Street in Dallas, which aims to cultivate mutually transforming relationships with inner-city youth through Christian mentorship
“Through our True Inspiration Awards grant program, Chick-fil-A helps empower local nonprofits that are leading positive change and creating tangible impact throughout the communities they serve,” Brent Fielder, senior director of corporate social responsibility for Chick-fil-A, said in a statement. “This year, we added a new grant category—Caring for our Planet—to help support additional nonprofits that act as good stewards of the planet we share. It’s our pleasure to invest in the growth and legacy of all our 2023 recipient organizations throughout the U.S.”
