UPS no longer funding Boy Scouts
UPS will no longer be giving money to the Boy Scouts of America, becoming the latest company that has stopped funding or has spoken out against the organizations policy of prohibiting gay members or leaders.
The Georgia-based shipping giant confirmed Monday it has changed its policy on charitable gifts to require that recipients have a non-discrimination policy that matches its own.
Computer chip titan Intel, identified by a gay and lesbian news magazine as the Boy Scouts largest corporate benefactor, reportedly ended funding to the organization earlier this year.
The chief executives of AT&T and Ernst & Young, respectively, who are both on Boy Scouts of Americas executive board, said they support ending the ban of gay members, and will try to work to change the policy.
