In addition to the $630,000 charity and scholarship purse, another $170,000 was generated for charitable organizations bringing the 2017 total to $800,000 in charitable giving. Since its creation in 2007, the event has contributed a total of $6.8 million in scholarship and charity, helping make the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl college football’s most charitable bowl game.
