A letter from our Board Chair & Executive Director

2022 was an incredible year setting the stage and paving the way for a brighter future for the KFC Foundation, restaurant employees and their communities. None of what we do would be possible without you.

The spare change KFC customers donated by rounding up their order in 2022 added up to $3 million. These contributions doubled our operating budget and doubled the possibilities for how we could invest in the lives of restaurant employees, their families and their communities.

KFC Franchisees continued their generosity by donating a portion of their Secret Recipe Fries sales to the KFC Foundation.

Because of your support, we launched an opportunity for KFC restaurant employees to pursue a college degree through Western Governors University, with 100% of their tuition and required fees being covered by the KFC Foundation.

Because of your support, we granted $500,000 in wishes to 50 non-profit organizations making an invaluable difference in their communities.

Because of your support, we partnered with Crisis Text Line to provide text-based mental health support for restaurant employees, 24/7.

Because of your support, we awarded $2 million in scholarships in 2022 to help restaurant employees attend the trade school, college and graduate school of their choice—and awarded $2.5 million in 2023.

And that is just the tip of the iceberg. We helped hundreds of families make it through times of crisis, empowered restaurant employees to earn their GED, inspired positive financial habits, and more.

None of this is possible without you. Thank you for investing in the KFC Foundation. Thank you for investing in the lives of thousands of KFC restaurant employees.

With gratitude,

Justin Stewart

Together, we’re making communities brighter making education accessible supporting families in crisis inspiring financial stability

Together, we’re making communities brighter

Because of you, 50 non-profits are making a greater impact in their community.

“A new therapy and vegetable garden will be created at Nassau Haven, thanks to a $10,000 grant from the KFC Foundation. This is an especially meaningful project as we were nominated by David Pierre Jr., a former resident of our Walkabout program. David resided at Walkabout 23 years ago and saved $7,000 while in the program. David is now the general manager of the KFC in Lynbrook and has since helped six Walkabout residents obtain employment with KFC. Thank you, David, the entire team at KFC, and the KFC Foundation for this generous gift.”

– Family & Children’s Association in Garden City, New York

Together, we’re making education accessible

Because of you, 47 KFC restaurant employees earned their GED and 631 received a scholarship for college or trade school.

“As a first-generation college student who is paying out of pocket, it is such a blessing to have won a scholarship through the KFC Foundation. When my manager told me, I broke out into tears. Winning this scholarship really allowed me to follow the path to my future as an interpreter. Knowing that I work for an organization that offers this amazing opportunity means the world to me.”

– Emma, KFC team member in Mountain City, Tennessee

Together, we’re supporting families in crisis and inspiring financial stability

Because of you, 304 KFC restaurant employees received mental health support or financial assistance during their time of need, and 145 built a stronger habit of saving money.

“The KFC Foundation really went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. You have no idea how much this has helped me in getting through my loss. Without KFC, I don’t know where we would be today.”

– Kaitlyn, KFC shift supervisor
