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 over $15 million in scholarships to more than 3,200 students, much of which has been awarded to KFC U.S. Restaurant employees.

The Foundation has furthered its commitment to KFC restaurant employees by launching the KFC Family Fund. Watch our video to learn more about how we truly care for KFC restaurant teams.

Our charitable programs are made possible through the ongoing support of KFC Corporation and our many franchisees.
