Chicken Salad Chick Foundation

A Vision with Purpose…Co-Founder Kevin Brown’s Legacy

The true purpose of our founders, Stacy and Kevin Brown, was to have a positive impact on people, and the duo saw the opportunity for a philanthropic avenue within just a few months of opening the first Chicken Salad Chick location. After Kevin’s diagnosis of stage 4 colon cancer that had spread to his liver, the direction of the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation became clear. Through fundraisers such as its annual Teeing Off On Cancer Golf Classic, the CSC Foundation is able to make sizeable donations to local cancer centers, as well as the American Cancer Society. The CSC Foundation hosted Music & Miracles Superfest in 2016 at Jordan-Hare Stadium featuring headliner Kenny Chesney plus Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt, and Old Dominion, raising $200,000 for the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

After a courageous fight, Kevin passed away in November of 2015. He continued to devote his time to his family, the business, and the CSC Foundation right to the end.

In addition to finding a cure for cancer, the CSC Foundation is passionate about ending hunger in America. This cause is a natural fit for our foundation since, as a restaurant concept founded with an appreciation for health and family, feeding families in need closely aligns with who we are as an organization. Food insecurity affects one in six people in America, reaching every community in every state. The CSC Foundation partners with Chicken Salad Chick locations in our various markets to give back to local food banks and food-related charities.

True to our mission of spreading joy, enriching lives, and serving others, we’re honored to have the ability to give back through our Chicken Salad Chick Foundation. Through this foundation, we have tremendous opportunities to impact the lives of our friends and neighbors in need and, in doing so, help secure the future of our philanthropy by setting a positive example across the Chicken Salad Chick organization. Whether fighting cancer or feeding the hungry, this foundation allows us to affect the lives of so many in our communities, as well as on a much broader level.

Please consider partnering with us in any and all of our upcoming endeavors. Contact us for more information or to make a donation.
