Chick-fil-A bends to the left, stops donations to Salvation Army

Chick-fil-A has bent to the left-wing mob and announced it would stop its donations to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.


Beginning next year, Chick-fil-A will move away from its current philanthropic structure, Bisnow has learned. After donating to more than 300 charitable organizations this year, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain will instead focus on three initiatives with one accompanying charity each: education, homelessness and hunger.  “There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Tassopoulos said in an interview with Bisnow. “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.” The new initiative will no longer include donating to organizations like the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Paul Anderson Youth Home, Chick-fil-A says, all of which sparked criticism in the past from the LGBT community due to the organizations’ stances on homosexuality. 

This came as a shock due to the fact that although Chick-fil-A has been under boycott for quite some time they have been quite successful financially.

Chick-fil-A surpassed $1B in sales in 2001 and eclipsed the $5B mark in 2013, the year following Cathy’s statement on gay marriage. The chicken chain became the third-largest U.S. fast-food chain this year with $10.5B in sales, according to Nation’s Restaurant News data. Only McDonald’s and Starbucks bring in more revenue among fast-food chains.

But after years of “taking it on the chin,” as a Chick-fil-A executive told Bisnow, the latest round of headlines was impossible to ignore. This time, it was impeding the company’s growth.   The San Antonio City Council was voting on an airport concessions contract in March when ThinkProgress reported that Chick-fil-A was still donating to anti-LGBT groups. The Chick-fil-A Foundation had donated $1.8M in 2017 to the Salvation Army, the FCA and the Paul Anderson Youth Home. A San Antonio city councilor brought up the article at the council meeting, and councilors voted in favor of the concessions contract — as long as a planned Chick-fil-A was dropped from the deal.

Conservatives are not happy about the move:

Dana Loesch pointed out that the timing of this was quite odd:

I have no clue what Chick-fil-A is doing here but I will be watching the headlines over the next few days. It seems to me that there may be some big deal in the books for them so they have decided to sell out. The groups they supported weren’t radical rather than expressed support for traditional values. It is becoming more and more clear every day that being a Christain is no longer okay in America.

Chick-fil-A seemed to be a beacon of hope in this fight. Even with the boycotts and the protests they continued to succeed.

I would love to know where Pope Francis’s leadership is regarding the hatred for Christians in America because if the Democrats get control religious liberty will be in serious jeopardy.
