The KFC Foundation presents Kentucky Fried Wishes, a new wish-granting initiative for restaurant employees in 2019.
Starting May 15, 2019, anyone can nominate an eligible KFC restaurant employee for a Kentucky Fried Wish. The wish could be big or small; adventurous or practical; need-based, life-enhancing or educational. Examples of requests include buying a car, paying off debt, going on a vacation, buying furniture or other household needs, help with adoption fees… the possibilities are (almost) endless!
Multiple Kentucky Fried Wishes, totaling $35,000, will be granted nationwide. Winners will be announced in Fall 2019.
Know a KFC restaurant employee who could use a Kentucky Fried Wish in their life? If so, submit a nomination by June 30!
*To be eligible, the person being nominated must work at a KFC restaurant participating in the 2019 Cole Slaw Donation Program.
About the KFC Foundation
It started with a hitchhiker who happened to be a college student. The Colonel gave him a ride and a full scholarship. That act of kindness inspired the KFC Foundation, an independent 501c3 organization, which has since provided over $18 million to more than 6,400 students and KFC Restaurant employees. Today, the heart of what the KFC Foundation does is care for restaurant employees. Thanks to the generous support of KFC Franchisees, with additional support from KFC Corporation, the Foundation provides a spectrum of charitable programs for KFC frontline workers, including education, hardship assistance and personal finance programs.
