About Us

The KFC® family has a rich history of generosity inspired by Colonel Harland Sanders himself. 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, which has since provided $17 million to more than 4,500 students and KFC Restaurant employees, assisting them in going to college, earning a GED and in hardship/crisis situations.

Our charitable programs are made possible through the ongoing support of our many franchisees and KFC Corporation. Watch our video to learn more about how KFC U.S. truly cares for its restaurant teams.
