Target announced that it had made a revision in its corporate donation policy.
According to the Washington Blade, Target recently made updates to its giving policy regarding the support of political candidates:
Among the new changes, which have been posted on Target’s web site, are establishing a policy committee made up of senior executives to guide decision-making for financial support of political activities.
Lady Gaga told Billboard Magazine that she had a conversation with executives that was one of the stipulations in her deal.
“That discussion was one of the most intense conversations I’ve ever had in a business meeting. Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they’ve made in the past … our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they’ve made supporting those [antigay] groups.”
