Disney Halts Funding To Boy Scouts Of America

Posted: Updated:

Walt Disney said they will no longer give donations to The Boy Scouts of America after this year.

Disney says the reason they will no longer provide financial support is because the scouts won't let gay adults be scout leaders.

A spokesman for the boy scouts says Disney's decision will affect the organization's ability to help kids.

Disney does not directly fund the scouts, but, the company gives donations to scout troops where Disney employees are volunteers.
