Chick-fil-A Has Donated More than $1 Million to Antigay Charities

Despite Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy's insistence that he is not antigay and his company has "no agenda against anyone", Equality Matters has tracked more than $1 million in donations from Chick-fil-A's charitable division to antigay organizations, including some that promote and fund ex-gay and reparative therapies.

Despite Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy's insistence that he is not antigay and his company has "no agenda against anyone", Equality Matters has tracked more than $1 million in donations from Chick-fil-A's charitable division to antigay organizations, including some that promote and fund ex-gay and reparative therapies.

The company has given more than $600,000 to the National Christian Foundation between 2003 and 2008. The National Christian Foundation provides grants to non-profits including Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council.

From 2003-2008, Chick-fil-A also donated money to the Fellowship of Christan Athletes, the Alliance Defense Fund and Campus Crusade for Christ.

In January, Chick-fil-A came under fire for donating meals to a Pennsylvania based "traditional marriage" event. Cathy responded with a statement: "In recent weeks, we have been accused of being anti-gay. "We have no agenda against anyone. While my family and I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, we love and respect anyone who disagrees."
