The United Way of Greater Cleveland Board of Directors unanimously approved adding sexual orientation to its Diversity Policy at its September meeting. A decision which could impact Boy Scouts of America funding.

Bill Kitson, president and CEO of the United Way of Greater Cleveland, said the Boy Scouts were the only agency not in compliance with its new policy.

“We are not telling the Boy Scouts what to do. We will not ask the Boy Scouts to change. As a private organization they have the right to determine who they serve and who will serve them. We, however, have the right to fund only those organizations that comply with our new policy,” he said.

The Boy Scouts of America recently reaffirmed its ban on openly gay scouts and leaders.

According to Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC, the Boy Scouts of America, Greater Cleveland Council received $97,251 from United Way funding this year, or about 3% of its budget.

The Cleveland chapter is not the first to extend protections based on sexual orientation. It joins about 50 out of 1,200 United Ways.
