Chick-fil-A's recent announcement that it will be changing its donation recipients has created a firestorm of criticism toward the chicken chain.

The restaurant has announced that it will be donating to Covenant House and Junior Achievement, both of which have pro-LGBT stances, while ceasing donations to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes amid backlash from LGBT activists over the groups' religious opposition to same-sex marriage.

Tax records also show past donations to other organizations that espouse pro-LGBT and pro-abortion beliefs.

In 2017, Chick-fil-A donated money to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which lists the pro-marriage and pro-life organization Family Research Council as a "hate group."

The restaurant has also donated to the YWCA, which has partnered with Planned Parenthood; the New Leadership Council, which identifies as a "hub of progressive millennial thought leadership;" and The Pace Center of Girls, which is pro-choice. Chick-fil-A has also donated to Usher's New Look, which hosts the Disruptivator Summit focused on progressive community organizing.

Chick-fil-A has also given more than $50,000 to Chris 180, which is a pro-LGBT behavioral health and child welfare service agency.
