Fast food giant Chick-fil-A have notoriously donated to anti-LGBTQ+ organizations over the years but the company says they’re backing off.

The company will no longer donate to Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and are announcing they will redirect their donations in 2020.

The move comes after protests brought their donations more exposure. People are being cautious about the announcement though as this is not the first time they’ve said they would cut ties with anti-gay and trans groups.

In 2016, they reportedly told progressive news site Think Progress that they would end their donations to such groups but a report from this year showed they donated $1.8 million to discriminatory groups in 2017.

“Staying true to its mission of nourishing the potential in every child, the Chick-fil-A Foundation will deepen its giving to a smaller number of organizations working exclusively in the areas of education, homelessness and hunger,” the company announced today.

They say they’re committing $9 million to Junior Achievement USA to support educational programs for K-12 students; Covenant House International who provide shelter and supportive services organization for homeless youth and more than 120 local food banks across the U.S.

Only time will tell if they are lying again about the organizations they will be donating to going forward.
