(WHAS11) -- The UPS Foundation says it will no longer give grants to the Boy Scouts of America.

UPS officials say as long as the Boy Scouts exclude gays and lesbians from being scouts or leaders they will not give them grants.

The philanthropic branch of the shipping giant made the change after an online petition attracted more than 80,000 signatures.

The UPS foundation gave $150,000 to the Boy Scouts back in 2010.

UPS Foundation officials say the groups applying for grants will have to adhere to the same standards as UPS----saying they don't discriminate against anyone.
