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. (Watch the video for the full story.)
That act of kindness inspired the KFC Foundation, which has since provided over $23 million to more than 8,000 students and KFC Restaurant employees, assisting them in getting an education, in crisis situations and with personal finance.
Our charitable programs are made possible through the ongoing support of our many franchisees and KFC Corporation.
