The KFC Youth Foundation (formerly known as KFC Foundation) provides grants to support grassroots organisations in the communities where KFC’s restaurants are located. The Foundation works with organisations who are empowering young people in the UK to fulfil their potential by providing safe social spaces, mentoring or work, and social skills.

The Foundation aims to fund work that helps young people create firm foundations, by addressing their needs through early intervention.

Grants of up to £2,500 are available.

The KFC Foundation welcomes funding applications from organisations which:

  • Benefit young people aged 11-25 years old.
  • Supports those in a position of economic disadvantage (including one of the following: care leavers, those experiencing homelessness, young carers, young parents, refugees, young people at risk of or with experience of the criminal justice system).
  • Empower young people to fulfil their potential and build a positive future by providing spaces that allow young people to feel safe and secure, helping them to unlock talent, build life skills, provide mentoring and improve their chances to gain meaningful employment.
  • Will demonstrate positive results from their project within 12 months of our funding being received

There is a two-stage application process. Groups must first submit an online Expression of Interest, including a two-minute video about their organisation, before being invited to submit a full application.

The deadline for application is 17 March 2024 (23:59).
