As the end of the year approaches, tax-minded donors are looking for places to give their charitable funds.

As the end of the year approaches, tax-minded donors are looking for places to give their charitable funds. For years, the Chicago area United Way was a major source of income for the Chicago area Boy Scouts. But the United Way has cut funding to the Boy Scouts by 90% over the past two years. This week, the Illinois Family Institute condemned United Way’s decision to defund the Boy Scouts, saying the United Way is succumbing to the demands of gay rights’ activists.
