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

Partnering for good to bring about positive, lasting change

The neighborhoods nestled on the Westside of Atlanta—English Avenue, Vine City, Ashview Heights and Atlanta University Center—hold special historical significance. These neighborhoods served as the incubator for the civil rights movement. Martin Luther King, Jr., preached on these streets, and some of the nation’s most prestigious black colleges and universities are located here today. This culturally rich part of the city has fallen on hard times in more recent years, and many families are living below the federal poverty line. Working hand-in-hand with local community members, civic and non-profit organizations, and corporations, the Chick-fil-A Foundation is working to restore and revitalize these historic communities—so the children and families who call these neighborhoods home can once again be part of Atlanta's success story.
