The announcement came after an online petition protesting UPS's annual grants to the Boy Scouts gathered eighty-thousand signatures. UPS says that any organization applying for grants from them must also follow the same standards that UPS does.
UPS says they do not discriminate against anyone based on sexual orientation, race, religion, or disability. A grant of 150 thousand dollars was given to the Boy Scouts in 2010. It wasn't clear how much money was given last year.
