The heart of what we do is care for KFC® restaurant employees.
Colonel Sanders was passionate about changing lives for the better. And so are we.
The KFC Foundation, an independent non-profit organization, provides charitable support to KFC U.S. restaurant teams through education and crisis assistance programs.
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.
For KFC restaurant employees who didn’t graduate from high school, Rise with GEDWorks™ is a pathway to achieving their dreams. Offered in both English and Spanish, this free program, in partnership with GED Testing Service, provides unlimited access to GED® preparation and testing.
The KFC Family Fund is available to employees at participating KFC U.S. restaurants 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.
