Chick-fil-a to Stop Donating to Christian Charities Amid Backlash from LGBT Activists

Chick-fil-a has announced that the company will no longer donate to Christian charities after years of backlash from LGBT right activists.

The Chick-fil-a Foundation has donated millions of dollars over the years to The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which opposes same-sex marriage.

A spokesperson for the company told Reuters, “We made multi-year commitments to both organizations and we fulfilled those obligations in 2018.”

The foundation will now focus its charitable efforts on “education, homelessness and hunger.”

A GLAAD exec responded to the news and said, “If Chick-Fil-A is serious about their pledge to stop holding hands with divisive anti-LGBTQ activists, then further transparency is needed regarding their deep ties to organizations like Focus on the Family, which exist purely to harm LGBTQ people and families.”
