MAP International Selected as 2024 Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Awards Grant Recipient
Brunswick, GA, January 10, 2024 – MAP International, a Brunswick-area global health nonprofit organization, has been named the recipient of a $30,000 grant through the annual Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Awards® program.
This grant will help further MAP International’s efforts across the globe as they continue to deliver lifesaving medicine and critical health supplies to those in need around the world, including the U.S. and Georgia.
“We are honored by the generosity of Chick-fil-A and the support of our community,” said Steve Stirling, President and CEO of MAP International. “We believe that every person deserves the opportunity to live life to the fullest, and this grant will enable us to continue empowering people all over the world with the resources they need to live a healthy life.”
MAP International is one of 51 True Inspiration Awards grant recipients in 2024 that are receiving a collective $5.48 million from Chick-fil-A, Inc. To be selected for a grant, organizations must work to address key issues that align with Chick-fil-A’s corporate social responsibility priorities: Caring for People, Caring for Others through Food, Caring for our Communities and Caring for our Planet.
The True Inspiration Awards were established in 2015 to carry on Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy’s legacy of generosity and community service. Since that time, more than 300 grants, ranging from $30,000 to $350,000, have been distributed to organizations located across the North America, including Puerto Rico and Canada.
“Across the communities Chick-fil-A serves, we strive to have a positive impact, and we are honored to support local nonprofits that are truly making a difference in their neighborhoods,” said Brent Fielder, senior director of corporate social responsibility for Chick-fil-A, Inc. “This year’s True Inspiration Awards grant recipients are doing incredible work in their local communities – from feeding those in need to providing resources for military families to supporting the development of students and more. Chick-fil-A is thrilled to help further the impact of these nonprofits through our largest number of True Inspiration Awards to date.”
