If you’re trying to fool yourself into believing that Chick-fil-A didn’t cave to the left so you can keep enjoying your chicken sandwiches, you better stop reading now. Because I am about to tell you the truth about where Chick-fil-A’s money is going and when I’m done, I doubt you’ll have the stomach for anything “Chick-fl-A.”
We reported last week that the president of the Chic-fil-A Foundation was an Obama/Hillary supporter and a Democrat donor. So, much of the culture shift that is happening can likely be linked back to him.
Below is a list of some of the organizations and groups that Chick-fil-A is donating to. After you read this and hopefully share it, I want you to think long and hard about where you spend your hard-earned money.
Chick-fil-A has promoted itself as a faith-based traditional Christan company with traditional moral values. They have earned a large following of loyal customers based on those beliefs. However, the groups they donate to do not share those same values – as a matter of fact, they work hard to snuff out those values and push the progressive ideology.
Chick-fil-A has been donating to several pro-abortion groups, groups that push a hardcore progressive ideology, and pro-gay groups.
Has their mission drifted way to the Left? Out with organizations that do not espouse a pro-homosexuality ideology and in with those who do, like Covenant House. Don’t let the Catholic association fool you, though. Covenant House, a homeless shelter for youth, takes pride in its promotion of all things LGBTQ. They even marched in the New York “Gay Pride” parade to show their inclusivity cred. Guess the Salvation Army (which admittedly has an issue with partially supporting abortion in cases of rape, incest and “life and health” of the mother) should’ve flown some co-opted rainbow colors to keep their hundreds of thousands in funding. Whoops. Looks like Covenant is the new Salvation.
Chick-fil-A funds the deeply political YWCA, a radically pro-abortion and pro-LGBTQ organization that repeatedly partners with Planned Parenthood.
Chick-fil-A also funds the DC-based New Leaders Council that identifies as a “hub of progressive millennial thought leadership” which exists to “support one another along their individual path to a more progressive political and cultural landscape.”
Chick-fil-A has given a sizable donation ($50k) to The Pace Center for Girls, yet another pro-abortion organization. The education and advocacy group featured radical pro-abortion feminist Gloria Steinem (the “I Had An Abortion” activist who declared that birthing children is the “fundamental cause of climate change”) as their keynote speaker for their most recent girls’ Summit.
Or, how about Usher’s New Look, R&B star Usher Raymond IV’s liberal non-profit? The group’s Disruptivator Summit is all about progressive community organizing on pivotal social issues, and Chick-fil-A funds it ($38,700 in 2017).
Chick-fil-A also gives tens of thousands to Chris 180 ($27,500 in 2017, $25k in 2019), a pro-LGBT behavioral health and child welfare service agency. The organization boasts of being awarded the “Leader in Supporting and Serving LGBT Families and Youth from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC).” Nothing promotes human degradation quite like the pro-abortion HRC—the multi-million dollar LGBT powerhouse that recently pushed for the legalization of prostitution in D.C.
You can always love and serve the broken without affirming the brokenness.
And then there’s Junior Achievement (JA), which inarguably does some phenomenal work with education and entrepreneurship. They’re the recipients of hundreds of thousands a year from Chick-fil-A. In 2016, though, JA joined a coalition (Georgia Prospers) of pro-LGBT organizations in their “Too Busy to Hate” campaign to politically oppose religious liberty legislation (specifically the First Amendment Defense Act) from passing in Georgia.

I’m sorry to say this, but those of us who believed that Chick-fil-A was a deeply traditional Christian company who only donated to groups with the same Christan values have been duped.
