CFA - Scholarship America

Since 1973, Chick-fil-A has awarded over $100 million in scholarships to more than 66,000 restaurant Team Members.

What’s the secret? You could say it’s in the sauce.

The effort began back in 1955, when Chick-fil-A’s founder, Truett Cathy, set a mayonnaise jar on his restaurant counter to help raise funds for Team Member Eddie White to pursue his lifelong dream of a college education.

One mayonnaise jar soon gave way to Chick-fil-A’s dedication to provide educational assistance for Team Members across the United States.

Through December 31, 2023, 100% of the royalties Chick-fil-A receives from the purchase of retail products featuring our charitable message will go to Scholarship America to fund Team Member scholarships awarded through the Remarkable Futures™ scholarship program. For additional information about the Remarkable Futures scholarship program, visit the Chick-fil-A Remarkable Futures page.
