Chick-Fil-A ending its donations to anti-LGBTQ companies: report

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) —Chick-Fil-A announced Monday that it's introducing a more focused approach to causes it supports.

FOX News reports the new move comes as the company has also decided to stop giving to two companies that have received criticism from LGBTQ advocates, including the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian athletes.

The Chick-Fil-A Foundation said it's committed $9 million to initiatives surrounding education, homelessness and hunger.

“We are incredibly excited to be the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s education partner and to make a positive difference in the lives of countless young people as a result of this initiative,” said Jack E. Kosakowski, president and CEO of JA. “Chick-fil-A has been a dedicated supporter of JA programs for many years, and we look forward to working together to reach even more kids through this latest commitment.”

The new initiatives will begin in 2020.
