Chick-fil-A reportedly ends anti-gay funding

BLADE NEWS SERVICES

CHARLOTTE — Chick-fil-A, the chicken chain that stoked controversy over same-sex marriage last summer, seems to have stopped donating to groups that oppose LGBT unions, according to one gay-rights group.

Shane Windmeyer, executive director of Campus Pride, said in a statement that he reviewed the 2011 IRS 990 tax documents for Chick-fil-A’s WinShape Foundation charity. The documents, he said, showed no sign of giving to organizations such as the Family Research Council or Exodus, which advocate against gay marriage.
