Chick-Fil-A to Stop Donations to Anti-LGBT Groups

Months after Dan Cathy's comments on gay marriage


The conservative fried chicken restaurant chain Chick-fil-A has agreed to stop funding groups opposing rights for LGBT people, some of which have been labeled as hate groups.

press release from The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) said that Chick-fil-A had confirmed to Chicago Alderman Proco "Joe" Moreno that its nonprofit, the WinShape Foundation, would no longer donate money to anti-LGBT organizations.

"The WinShape Foundations [sic] is now taking a much closer look at the organizations it considers helping, and in that process will remain true to its stated philosophy of not supporting organizations with political agendas," the letter stated.
