American Cancer Society turned away a half-million $ from atheists?

Seems that way:

”After many go-arounds, Stiefel was finally told no. He was told that the Relay for Life program was focusing on corporate sponsors for the National Team program, and was no longer including nonprofits in the program. Despite the massive size of the offer from the Stiefel Foundation -- and despite the fact that several nonprofits are currently participating in the program, including Girl Scouts of the USA, Phi Theta Kappa and DeMolay International -- the ACS insisted that nonprofit participation in this program wasn't cost-effective, and would no longer be welcome.”

So far the ACS has not given a good enough reason for passing Todd Stiefels generous contribution. If other non-profit organizations can be part of the National Team program then there is no reason that the Foundation Beyond Belief should not be part of the National Team either. Until they can reconcile that contradiction I'd say the ACS is being deceiving.
