UPS – Corporate Sponsor
After more than 80,000 people joined Scouts for Equality founder Zach Wahls’ campaign urging UPS to stop funding the Boy Scouts, UPS announced that they will join Intel in no longer funding organizations that discriminate. UPS confirmed to GLAAD that under new UPS Foundation guidelines, organizations banning gay people are no longer eligible to have grant applications reviewed.
UPS Statement: “The UPS Foundation seeks to support organizations that are in alignment with our focus areas, guidelines, and non-discrimination policy. UPS and The UPS Foundation do not discriminate against any person or organization with regard to categories protected by applicable law, as well as other categories protected by UPS and The UPS Foundation in our own policies. These include, but are not limited to race, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran or military status, pregnancy, age and religion.”
