True Inspiration Awards

Recognizing outstanding community organizations that honor Truett Cathy's legacy

Truett Cathy was known to ask a simple question: “Why not your very best?” This question guided him as a husband, a father and a businessman—it also guided his work in the community. With a passionate belief in the unlimited potential of every child, he dedicated his life to inspiring and challenging young people to be their very best, too. In 2015, the Chick-fil-A Foundation established the True Inspiration Awards to honor Truett's legacy. Each year, we celebrate organizations from across the country who embody his spirit of service and exist, like us, to help every child become all they were created to be.

Atlanta's Westside

Our hope to shape the future of Atlanta begins here.

Once a shining beacon of the civil rights movement, Atlanta’s historically rich Westside is, today, one of the most violent neighborhoods in the country. Here, more than one-third of the homes stand vacant. What’s worse: Over 60 percent of children under the age of 18 live in poverty. It’s time for a change. As part of the Westside Future Fund, the Chick-fil-A Foundation is joining other local businesses and organizations to reinvest in and reimagine the community. Together, we will work to secure a stronger, healthier future for the families, schools and businesses who call the Westside home.
