The popular fried chicken sandwich fast food chain Chick-fil-A has long been targeted by pro-human-rights groups for aligning with hate and homophobia.
They say they will now focus giving on “education, homelessness & hunger.”
“Years after splitting from actively anti-LGBTQ orgs, Chick-fil-A will stop funding two huge charities that have also opposed same-sex marriage: The Salvation Army & Fellowship of Christian Athletes,” reports Ethan Kraft at CNBC.
Excerpt from CNBC's report:
The fast-food chain’s foundation has donated millions of dollars to The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Both organizations have a history of opposing same-sex marriage.
Chick-fil-A said it no longer funds the organizations.
“We made multi-year commitments to both organisations and we fulfilled those obligations in 2018,” a spokeswoman for Chick-fil-A told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, adding the company would focus its giving on “education, homelessness and hunger.”
The Atlanta-based company has faced criticism in the past for its charitable donations and CEO Dan Cathy’s public comments opposing gay marriage.
