    United Parcel Service said they will side with gay rights organizations and stop donating money to the Boy Scouts of America.

    The shipping company's philanthropic arm said it wants to promote an environment of diversity and inclusion.

    In 2011, the UPS Foundation gave the Irving-based Boy Scouts more than $85,000.

    The Boy Scouts stand by their decision to ban openly gay youths and adults from participating in scouting, despite a petition signed by more than 330,000 people urging them to change their policy.
