The heart of what we do is care for KFC® restaurant employees.
Colonel Sanders was passionate about Making a Difference and helping people Be Their Best Selves through education. The Kentucky Fried Chicken Foundation, an independent non-profit organization, is passionate about providing charitable support to KFC U.S. restaurant teams through education and crisis assistance programs, while also giving KFC operators valuable tools for recruitment, retention and engagement.
Which Program is for You?
The REACH Educational Grant Program® helps employees at participating KFC U.S. restaurants pursue their dreams of going to college. Employees of any age, any position, pursuing any degree can receive money to help them attend the accredited four-year or two-year college of their choice. The money can also be used at trade/vocational schools and for graduate study.
The REACH HIGH® - High School Equivalency Program, in partnership with GED Testing Service, is a pathway to achieving their dreams. Every eligible KFC restaurant employee who seeks assistance is admitted into this free, all-inclusive program that provides unlimited access to GED® preparation and testing.
The KFC Family Fund is available to KFC U.S. restaurant employees who have been directly impacted by a severe hardship, crisis or catastrophic incident that was beyond their control. While money can’t eliminate the sorrow, it can hopefully eliminate some of the added stress that often accompanies it.
