Chick-fil-A cuts charity ties with anti-LGBTQ groups

Chick-fil-A has been targeted by LGBTQ groups, according to Reuters.

Over the years, both the Salvation Army and the FCA have opposed same-sex marriage, a position that has apparently proved untenable for the Christian-owned Chick-fil-A, at least from a marketing standpoint. Chick-Fil-A has also been criticized for the charitable partnerships in the past. "Moving forward you will see that the Chick-fil-A Foundation will support the three specific initiatives of homelessness, hunger, and education", the representative said in a statement.

Chick-fil-A said that for 2020 it has committed $US9 million each to those three initiatives: education, homelessness, and hunger.

"We have no policy of discrimination against any group, and we do not have a political or social agenda", a spokesperson said in 2018, only a few months before it was determined they were still donating to the same charities.

But the former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, a candidate in the US Republican presidential primaries in 2008 and 2016, accused Chick-fil-A of surrendering to "anti-Christian hate groups".

"We think this is going to be helpful", Chick-fil-A president and chief operating officer Tim Tassopoulos told Bisnow. This boycott largely failed, and Chick-Fil-A is now the third-largest restaurant chain in the country in terms of system-wide sales, trailing only McDonald's and Starbucks.

Chick-fil-A has donated millions of dollars to anti-gay causes.

The US fast-food chain Chick-fil-A said it has stopped funding two Christian organisations that have come under fire from LGBT campaigners for opposing marriage equality. Additionally, they've pledged to donate $25K to local food banks in cities where they expand their chain.

The restaurant company did not explain the decision except to say it wanted to offer "more clarity" about its donations.

The firm was focusing on education, hunger and homelessness because they are "critical issues in communities where we do business in the USA", he told the site. The company has not ruled out the possibility of donating to faith-based charities in the future, but said that they will not donate to any organisation that has an anti-LGBT+ stance. A United Kingdom location that opened in October is closing in about six months when its lease expires following protests from a LGBTQ rights group, reports CNBC.
