Chick-fil-A To Stop Donating To Charities Associated With Anti-LGBTQ Beliefs

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Chick-fil-A has announced it will no longer donate to two organizations criticized by LGBTQ activists for years.

The fast-food chain has donated millions of dollars to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Both charities have been criticized for their policies on the LGBTQ community.

According to the company, beginning next year, they will only donate to charities that focus on education, homelessness, and hunger.

"Beginning in 2020, the Chick-fil-A Foundation is introducing a more focused giving approach to deepen its giving to a smaller number of organizations in three primary areas," the company wrote on its website.

The website states that Chick-fil-A will be "expanding our partnership with Junior Achievement USA," to support education, "partnering with Covenant House International" to address youth homelessness, and "dedicating $25,000 to a local food bank" for more than 120 communities.
